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 November 21, 2020

It’s time to make thankful trees! Making thankful trees is so much fun! The colors get prettier and prettier as the trees get bigger and bigger. And, it feels so good to think about and write down what we’re thankful for – for an entire month! 
This time of year helps us refocus on all the good in our lives. And there is SO much good when it comes to God. Because God is good! That is what we want preschoolers to learn this month. God is good and we have A LOT we can thank Him for. 
So, get ready to create those thankful trees and tell God, “Thank You” for all the good things He’s made and done! We can’t wait to celebrate thankfulness all month long! And, in case you didn’t know, we are very thankful for you and all that you do to help preschoolers know that God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever.

Shout Out! Let ’em know you’re thankful

Gratitude sometimes feels like a lost art. Yet gratitude is an idea close to God’s heart. Think about all of the Bible stories where people give thanks to each other, celebrate God with feasts and festivals—not to mention the Psalms filled songs of praise. Just take a moment to consider everything God has done for you: the world He made, the promises He’s kept, the new life He offers through Jesus. When we remember all of that, we can always be thankful.
