Children & Family

Children & Families are important to us!

Our mission is to resource and encourage children and families so they may grow together in Christ and live as Jesus’ followers in mission and ministry. We welcome children and their families to worship with us; we provide age-appropriate learning experiences on Sundays and we help families grow in faith together at home. See below some links to resources and ideas, as well as details on different ministries you can connectwith here at Good Shepherd.
