Real Jesus. Real People. Real World. Raising kids to follow Christ full-time.
At Church of the Good Shepherd, we believe that kids need the gospel too, and aim to love them through sound teaching, compassionate leadership, and consistent mentorship. While we adhere to the belief that the family is a child’s first place of ministry, the church strives to reinforce the nurture kids receive within their own families, and to further support these children as they grow to know Jesus personally.
When + Where
Sunday School for ages 2 years – 5th grade are held during the 9:30 hour in assigned classrooms. Kids can check in at the Welcome Desk located in the concourse.
During the Worship Service, kids ages 3 years – through 1st grade are dismissed after the announcements to attend Children’s Worship, which is split into three classes: 3-year-olds, 4-year-olds, and Kindergarten-1st grade. Ages 12 weeks through 2 years are accommodated throughout the service in the nursery.
We use a digital check-in system that prints name badges for children that include food allergies. To check in, simply visit one of our two check in stations. One is located in the concourse area, where coffee is served. The other station is located just outside the nursery, which is adjacent to the sanctuary.

Summer Volunteers Needed
We are in need of Children’s Sunday School teachers this summer so that our faithful volunteers who’ve been teaching all year can have a well-deserved break. Click here for additional details and to sign up to serve the children of CGS this summer.
