Children, Youth, and Families
|Hello Good Shepherd Connect Families,
With the recent departure of Jenny Hatleli, the Children, Youth and Family Board (CYF) and many volunteers have worked very hard on getting things in place for the start of an exciting new Connect year. All of these great individuals are ready and excited for the coming year. Register your kids!
There have been some changes that we will be trying, but the goal is still the same, to give our children here at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd the best experience to learn about Jesus that we possibly can.
The following is the programming that we are offering:
K – Grade 5
Sunday Connect: Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. in Hegge Hall. Featuring a large group opening with song and scripture, Bible story lessons and smaller group activities. Also new for this years Connect offering: Help us buy a farm!
Wednesday Connect: Join us for supper at 5 p.m., worship in the Sanctuary at 6 p.m., then smaller group activities. Also new for this years Connect offering: Help us buy a farm!
Youth Connect: Grade 6-12:
3-D: A purposeful discipleship course for youth and adults who are ready to explore their faith in depth thru a one-one (with parents!) setting with the Pastor. At the completion of this course participants will be “confirmed” and received into the Congregation of Good Shepherd.
Senior High: Thursday nights starting at 6:30 p.m. Join us for a time of service, laughter, scripture and fun! Open to Grades 9-12, we spend time talking about the things that are happening in your daily life and what the connection to your spiritual life looks like.
We appreciate your prayers and understanding as we work through this transition as there may be some bumps in the road. We will also be looking for volunteers to help us out at different times throughout the year. Please consider helping out when you can. Together we can make this a great year for our kids and families.
We look forward to seeing everyone very soon.
We hear the Shepherd’s voice and follow Him:
In worship and witness,
In prayer and discernment,
In teaching and learning,
In service and outreach,
And in celebration.
