Good Shepherd’s Sunday morning ministry is open to all ages 2 (as of Aug. 1st) – adult. Class times are 9:30-10:40 am on Sundays during the school year.
LITTLE LAMBS, PRESCHOOL & PRE KINDERGARTEN- classes begin and end in their age-level classrooms (upper level of church building)
K-5th GRADE- Kindergartners through 5th graders meet on the lower level. Using the SPARK rotation curriculum, our elementary-age friends look at the bible in different ways featuring Bible Skills & Games, Science & Cooking and Movies & Art. Rotation schedules are posted around the church building with scheduled grade level pick-up place. Each story ‘rotation’ will last three weeks. Music and FUN are part the Sunday morning program as well!
Each class will share a song, reading, skit or message in worship two or three times during the school year. We love to see our young people share their energy and talents with the congregation!
RiSE MIDDLE SCHOOL YOUTH (6-8TH GRADE)- Meet in ‘theMiddle’ (Room 147) each Sunday for a time of faith discovery, growth and community building! Our time together is meaningful as we consider ways our faith ‘meets us’ in theMiddle!

Faith Milestones is an important part of our Children’s Ministry program. Through these age-level milestone events, we partner with parents to learn, grow and then to celebrate these events. Following is a listing of the Faith Milestone Events:
LITTLE LAMBS FIRST BIBLE FAITH MILESTONE – As our youngest learners begin Sunday School, they will receive a Children’s Preschool Bible from their parents as a reminder of the baptismal promise of “putting God’s word into the hands of their children.”
FIRST GRADE FIRST COMMUNION FAITH MILESTONE – Our first grade families will meet three consecutive Wednesday evenings to learn more about this sacrament that is so important to our faith. Families meet Wednesday evenings for three weeks each January. First Communion is celebrated on the first Sunday in February.
SECOND GRADE SMALL CATECHISM / LORD’S PRAYER FAITH MILESTONE – Our second graders and their parents are introduced to the Small Cat (children’s version of Luther’s Small Catechism) with a special emphasis on The Lord’s Prayer.
THIRD GRADE “BOOKS OF THE BIBLE” FAITH MILESTONE – Our third grade families spend three Sunday morning classes in November walking through the bible, learning a key verse from each book.
CONFIRMATION – Confirmation instruction begins in sixth grade and is held weekly, on Wednesday evenings, as part of our RiSE program. Our sixth, seventh and eighth graders meet from 5-6:00 pm with our pastors for Confirmation instruction and are then invited to be part of our Youth Club family-style meal at 6, followed by after-dinner community-building and service breakout groups from 6:30-7:30.
