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 February 20, 2021

God made us for love—the greatest love. He made that clear when He sent His Son, Jesus, to show us how to give and receive His love.

When Jesus walked the Earth, He was God’s love in the flesh. Jesus showed us time and time again that He loves us. That’s why our focus this month is the powerful truth Jesus loves me. We were all made for His love! And that is why we chose The Big Sandbox for the theme. We want every child to know that Jesus is their friend and He is inviting them—all of them—to join Him, because He loves them. Everyone can play in The Big Sandbox!

In a world where people and circumstances can easily make a person feel unloved, it is our desperate prayer that we can equip our preschoolers with the powerful truth that Jesus loves me. We want our preschoolers to live life knowing and believing—never doubting—that they are loved by the greatest love, and nothing will ever change that. After all, this is what they were made for—they were made for His love.

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it.

God was kind to us even when we didn’t deserve it. Because of His love for us, we can be kind to everyone.

Kindness is a fruit of the Spirit. And when you show kindness to others, you give them a glimpse into the heart of

God, and how much God loves them. Kindness is a characteristic of people who follow Jesus. Not only did

Jesus model kindness, but He also commanded it. He taught us to treat others the way we want to be treated.
