Rally Day 26 August


Rally Day is a family friendly event where it is okay for your kids to invite their friends to join them in running around exploring what we’ll have to offer. The long Summer days are coming to an end and we will begin to establish the school days routines. Rally Day underscores God's intention that all Christians (children, youth, and adults) grow and learn from His Word by including It in the routine. Rally Day, the day, is an opportunity for us to celebrate and acknowledge the ministries within the congregation with food, games, displays, a water slide, and fellowship.

Come to Rally Day, August 26, Noon @ your church.

VBS


Splash Canyon VBS is all Summer only during Sunday School (9:30-10:30). Where Kids confidently celebrate that our faithful God is with us on life’s wild ride. God saves us through Jesus and gives us life and hope every day and forever. The Bible accounts of God’s promises include baby Moses in the Nile River, God’s people crossing the Jordan River to enter the Promised Land, God healing Naaman in the Jordan, God saving Paul from the sea, and God’s Yes—Jesus—baptized in the Jordan River. In His Baptism, life, death, and resurrection, Jesus kept God’s promise to save us.

July 11-15, 2019: LCMS Youth Gathering

Confirmation


Confirmation is a lifelong Christian education and relational experience, within the congregation, that began when you came to faith in Jesus Christ. It is also a deeply held Lutheran tradition of formal classroom instruction. Our approach at Good Shepherd is to have two years of focused instruction (Sept-May) beginning in the 8th grade school year. The 8th grade classroom time is Wednesdays (6:30-8:00 PM) starting September 12th in the Youth Room. The 9th grade classroom is 5:00-6:30 PM. For more information, speak with Family Life Minister Curtis.
