Our children’s ministry assists families with children in 5th grade and younger by introducing the children to Jesus Christ, planting the seed of God’s Word into their hearts, modeling the love of Jesus through a team of caring volunteers, and nurturing and shepherding them into a lasting relationship with God.
Weekly options include:
Nursery: 8:30 am — 12:30 pm
Sunday School: 10:15 — 11:10 am
You may register your child before their first visit to the nursery or Sunday school or register at check-in on Sunday morning. We ask that you please register for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd in advance.
