Sunday School is held during our 10:00 am worship service on Sunday mornings throughout the school year. Children may sit with their parents for the beginning of worship, and they will be called forward for "Kids' Time", after which the children will be dismissed for Sunday School with their teachers. After worship, parents may pick up their child from the Sunday School classrooms, located in our Preschool wing. Please note, the first Sunday of each month is "Family Worship Sunday", and there is no Sunday School on these days. This is a special time for children to be present in worship with their families, and we offer various ways for families to be involved in elements of the worship service.

EPIC - Middle School & High School Youth is a youth ministry program designed intentionally to create an opportunity for students to know and encounter Jesus. We meet at Good Shepherd on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:30 PM, starting Wednesday, January 8th, 2020. Each night will begin with a shared meal around the dinner table (5:30-6:15), followed by a unique experience of outrageous games, worship, and ending with large group and small group learning (6:15-7:30). EPIC is a safe place for you to question and challenge things you’ve heard, or feel that you’re supposed to believe about Jesus and Christianity. After all, this is how we grow in our faith and enter into a personal relationship with Jesus. To register, please fill out this online registration form.
