Ministry Overview We are an inter-generational, child-friendly community. Good Shepherd affirms children of all ages and is committed to accompanying them, together with their families, on their faith journey. We honor a soul affirming worship every Sunday which includes participating children through scripture reading, singing, chanting, musical instruments and other activities that stimulate biblical imagination.
Youth from toddler to elementary school into high school come together every Sunday in different groups for spiritual nourishment through innovative bible study, play, story-telling and educational programming. We are committed to accompany all children as we grow in faith and help one another become a beloved community.
