Kids

Good Shepherd Kids is all about meeting, knowing and living for God. We focus on kids knowing three big things: the awe of God, the unconditional grace of Jesus and a daily friendship with the Holy Spirit. We are committed to walking with your family as you lead your child to love Jesus for their whole life. All volunteers (18+) are background checked and SafeKids certified.

Weekends

Kids Church is offered during all three of our weekend services: Saturday at 5 PM and Sunday at 9 & 10:45 AM. Each weekend kids will learn about and experience God through worship, crafts, Bible lessons and fun hands-on activities in a safe, caring and engaging environment with volunteers who have been background checked and SafeKids certified.

Read below for the steps we are taking to do our best to keep each other safe during this time. The first and very important step is for each of us to be ready to stay home if anyone in the family is not feeling well.

During each service we are currently open (no registration necessary) for kids age 2 through 5th grade. Everyone age 5 and older needs to wear a face covering. As you arrive, your family will check-in in the kids lobby. As your child enters their GS Kids room they will be placed in a small group capped at 10 children. Each service, each group and each child will have individual supplies for the weekend. At this time we are also not serving snacks or drinks. Your child can bring thier own water bottle.

Midweek

Kid’s Quest (KQ) and Breakout (BO) is for kids 4 years old through 5th grade. KQ/BO provides a place for kids to dive in to their spiritual growth and build long-term relationships with peers and leaders. We meet Thursday nights from 6:45-8 pm during the school year. Volunteers (18+) are background checked and SafeKids certified.

Kid’s Quest: 4 years old to 2nd grade
Breakout: Grades 3-5

Special needs

We believe every child with special should be given the opportunity to hear who Jesus is, worship him confidently, and share the gift of who they are. One way that we are doing this is through a “buddy system” which allows parents and family to attend church services while a volunteer who has been background checked and SafeKids certified attends a weekend time with your child/family member. We would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family’s needs.

Good Shepherd School

Good Shepherd School is a private, evangelical school providing excellence in Christian education. The teaching and learning focuses on a quality, academic environment that values godly character and parental involvement. Our school ranges from preschool to eighth grade.

Weekend of April 10, 2021

This month, we are going to be talking about something that is high and wide and deep. Do you know what it is? Yes, it’s the love of Jesus. Jesus’ love for each of us is so wide and long and high and deep that we can’t even measure it! And, we are going to have so much fun introducing this truth to our preschoolers this month!

We start the month with the best Sunday of the year—Easter! How exciting that we get to share the story of Easter with our youngest friends this month. Some of them will be hearing for the very first time that Jesus wants to be their friend forever. Yes! Jesus is alive, and He wants to be our friend forever!

We want to share the good news that Jesus is alive with our preschoolers all month long. We want them to hear over and over again that Jesus wants to be their friend forever. We want this foundational truth of Jesus’ great love for them to live in each preschooler’s heart.

The connection between peace and God’s character, as shown through God’s big story

When Adam and Eve decided that their way was better than God’s way and broke God’s rule, they changed the relationship between God and His creation. When once everything and everyone could be in the presence of God, now we were at odds with God. God could have done anything He wanted, including wiping us out and starting over. But instead, God decided to make peace with us. Ultimately God did this through His Son, Jesus.
