Learn more about Church School

Children Begin in Worship
Children are an important part of our worship community. Families stop in the lobby to check their children into church school, and then begin worship together. Following the children’s message, kids are welcomed to age appropriate church school classrooms.  Parents meet their children in the classroom after worship.

Serving at Church School
Church School classrooms are volunteer led. There are many opportunities to participate in your child’s church school experience – teaching, assisting, prepping materials. To volunteer, contact Joanne Zastrow

Parent Guide
Additional information is available in the Parent Guide including an overview of what a morning of church school looks like at Good Shepherd, bible presentations and workshops and how we praise God through music.

About our Programs

Spark Their Faith! Age 3-Grade 2
Our younger classes use a Bible learning curriculum called “Spark!” – a lively look at the most important and best loved stories of the Bible! And your family can follow along at home, because every child is provided with a Spark Story Bible.

Bible Deep Dive! Grades 3-5
For our older classes we use a combination of curriculum from “Spark!” and “Holy Moly!” Class time includes thought provoking video Bible stories. A variety of interactive Bible activities and projects encourage kids to engage with the Bible story and promotes discussion in class and at home. Three times a year this group will also participate in service projects during church school time. A NIrV Adventure Bible is provided for each student.

Learning God’s Word through Music All Grades
Once a month children will meet as a large group to praise God through music. Learn songs with your children through a Spotify Playlist or click here for music and lyrics.
