for we walk by faith, not by sight. 

2 Corinthians 5:7


Sunday School

Biblical storytelling and exploration are the focus of our young children’s time together. Through elementary school, Good Shepherd partners with parents as we prepare our children for the rite of Confirmation, confidently and consistently “placing scripture in their hands.” All Sunday School classes meet from 10:00 to 10:45 throughout the traditional school year, September through May. Register for the 2023-2024 year HERE. 

Worship & Wonder (meets in Education Wing, Room E-12)

Worship & Wonder is our Sunday School for 3 year-olds through 2nd graders. Worship & Wonder combines engaging storytelling with the rhythms of Lutheran-Christian worship. As children listen to and watch a new Bible story unfold each week, they are drawn in and encouraged to respond in their own unique way. We hope every student leaves Worship & Wonder with a deeper knowledge and understanding of Bible stories from both the Old and New Testament

3rd - 5th Grades (meets in the Cabana)

Prior to entering the 3rd grade, students are gifted their own Study Bible at the 2nd Grade Blessing of Bibles event. In Sunday School, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students use this Bible to dig into each Sunday's scripture over these three years. Currently, we are using Illustrated Ministry curriculum in a three-year cycle.  

Beyond Sunday School

Crosswalk Kids Events

During the school year, Crosswalk Kids (children kindergarten-5th grade) will have opportunities to participate in fun, faith-forming activities. Activities include "almost" sleepovers, family service projects and BYG (Building Youth Groups) weekend retreats at Camp Agape.

Milestone Blessings

In addition to activities specifically for children, we recognize that much of a child's faith formation happens through the family. Through events like our annual Advent Festival and activity kits we send home for the season of lent, we equip families to practice faith in the home. And check out our Milestone Ministry plan for all the moments we ask for God's blessing in the lives of the baptized. 

Making Music

Music connects us to God in a unique way. At Good Shepherd, even the littlest ones can join a choir and begin making music together. Learn more about all of our choirs and music groups. 

Summer Camps

Agape Day Camp is open to all children in rising 1st through 6th grade, Agape Day Camp at Good Shepherd is a fun-filled week led by trained counselors from Camp Agape. At Day Camp, we focus on helping children grow in faith, form new friendships and have fun. The key to Day Camp is the camp staff and the music, arts and crafts, games, nature time and Bible study that they bring to our children – in addition to their great love and contagious enthusiasm for sharing the faith.

Summerfest is a week-long musical theater camp takes familiar Bible stories, sets them to music and brings them into modern day times. With roles for children from rising kindergarten through 5th grade, it culminates with entertaining performances during Sunday morning worship. Summerfest takes place on the weekend and afternoons to allow kids in year-round school to participate.
