Sunday School Classes – 9:45 AM-10:30am
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– School is in session and so is our Nursery! During our Sunday School hour, we have coloring pages and fun videos for the kiddos to watch with trained adults there to lead them. Ages 0-Pre-K are welcome!
If you’re hesitant about Sunday School, no worries! Our staffed Nursery is open and available to you during worship with complete access to our livestreamed service through the TV.
Kindergarten-5th grade– Who’s ready to dive into games, crafts, and some fun Bible stories? Our K-5 ministry offers Sunday School each week with different skills like team building, leadership, problem solving, and inquisitive thinking! We also offer monthly family nights that allow the youth and their parents to join their friends at the church for a night of fun! We emphasize friendship and connection during these vital years as we prepare these young minds for Confirmation and beyond.
6th-8th grade – While a big focus for our middle schoolers is Confirmation, we still offer engaging curriculum during the Sunday School hour for those who attend. Much like the high schoolers, we offer the same format and same discussions, but link it loosely to our Confirmation curriculum and what they are learning.
9th-12th grade – Our High School Youth Group is nothing short of fun! On Sunday mornings, we offer a rotation of activities: how-to seminars, “movie” days, lectionary days, and teambuilding days. We emphasize that your journey through faith does not end after you are confirmed, so we do discussion-based formats to continue answering tough questions during these formative faith-based years.
Coffee & Conversation – rm. 118. Every week during the school year we meet to deepen our relationship with God and his Word. We continue the series entitled “God’s Law is Love”. 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.
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. Visitors are welcome in any of our Sunday School classes or studies at any time. If you need to know the location of the classes, please visit our map page here: Sunday School Maps 2021.
