Sunday School Classes – 9:45 AM
Sunday School Classes are offered for ages 3 through high school along with three different classes for adults. Masks are encouraged for all teachers and students until further notice. Contact our Youth and Family Ministry Coordinator, Melina Thurmond for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. With safety as a priority, our policy dictates that when there are children/youth in our building they are not to be left unattended.
Spark! Lectionary Lessons for Kindergarten – 8th grade.
Tiny Tots– All little ones who are too young to join Sunday School are invited to come and spend some time singing, dancing, coloring, and playing with each other during the Sunday School hour! We will read books and do mini projects to enrich their growing minds with the love that Jesus has for them!
Kindergarten-5th grade– Roughly every week during the school year we will have our youth gather together in community with those their age and learn more about the Gospel of the day. We will open with song and prayer, followed by a short video of the day, and continue with the lesson taught by our
wonderful Sunday School Teachers. We will be using Spark! Lectionary as a resource for our classes this year.
Coffee & Conversation – rm. 118. Every week during the school year we meet to deepen our relationship with God and his Word. We are starting a new series: Call in the New Testament. Passages from several Gospels and Epistles will be studied. A Zoom option will be made available for those who are unable to attend in person.
A Parent’s Perspective – rm. 120. This class is an invigorating conversation that will be based solely on the seasonal lectionary. While the youth will be learning about the same thing a couple rooms over, parents and guardians will spend some time finding tactical ways to create conversation with their own youth and continue the lesson outside of the classroom. We are hoping that this class will break down the wall of confusion and hierarchy of who knows the Bible better. We are excited to see this come to fruition!
Faith Stories – rm. 117. We find ways to connect our book study to our own life. Roughly every 2-3 months, we decide on a book to read and beginning digging deeper and finding ways to apply what’s being read to our own life. We have wonderful conversation and would encourage anyone to stop by for a class or two to see if it would be something that interests you.
Men in Mission – rm. 116. Roughly every week during the school year we gather together in community, as men of the congregation. We explore various study topics and discuss various needs in our community,
church, and personal relationships. We often participate in outreach initiatives.
Sunday School is an important part of Christian education and faith formation at Good Shepherd. Sunday School is available at 9:45 AM on Sunday mornings for all ages from 2 years old to high school. We also offer Adult Bible Studies on Sunday morning at 9:45 AM. Visitors are welcome in any of our Sunday School classes or studies at any time.

Sunday School Help Always Needed
We are always looking to round out our teaching teams for next year. Please contact Youth and Family Ministry Coordinator, Melina, if you would like to find out more information about what grades are still needing help this year, or if you would like to be available as a substitute teacher or assistant. Volunteering in any youth Sunday School class requires first taking the Children and Youth Protection class. More CYP information can be found here.
