Children and Youth Milestones

for Blessing the Seasons of the Christian Life


At Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, we recognize, honor and bless the many developmental milestones our children and youth encounter on their faith journey. The blessings aim to facilitate faith conversations between parent and child both at the event as well as in daily life. It all begins with the Baptismal Seminar for all parents desiring to have their child baptized. Baptismal Seminars occur throughout the year typically on Sunday afternoons or Monday evenings.
