Children & Family
Our Children & Family Ministries team offers Christian Formation through faith-enriching curriculum and community-building events. Our staff works collaboratively with Good Shepherd families to nurture faith journeys from preschool through high school graduation. We welcome all families – whether long-tenured or brand-new to the parish – to join these programs.

Ages 3 - 5th grade
Godly Play nurtures children's wonder and joy in a warm, inviting, and fun atmosphere, while their families attend worship. This curriculum encourages our children to explore their faith through story and self-directed responses.
3rd - 5th Grades
Edge is an age-level small group just for 3rd - 5th graders. Preteens will gather in the Edge Lounge for games and discussion centered on the Way of Love. Kids will learn to engage their faith critically and connect to the world around them.
2nd Grade and Older
While we welcome all children receive Communion, our Communion Instruction class empowers our Second Graders (and older) to make worship a home for their faith. With at least one parent present to support their learning, children closely examine the furnishings and layout of the church; the altar and its vessels of worship; and the Altar Guild sacristy. Additionally, participants explore the Sacrament’s meaning, as well as practice the choreography for receiving the bread and wine.
