Childern's Sunday School


Today in Sunday School, we learn about Jesus teaching the Pharisee Nicodemus under the cover of night. Since the fall into sin, all are born spiritually blind, sinful, and unclean. We are like Nicodemus and cannot see our sin or understand who Jesus truly is for us. As children of God, born of water and the Spirit, we can see our sinfulness and the salvation that is ours in Jesus Christ. Discuss with your children, “How did Baptism change you? What does Baptism do?”

July 11-15, 2019: LCMS Youth Gathering


LCMS Youth Gathering (July 11-15, 2019 - Minneapolis, MN) : A commitment to attending is needed by October 15th. The gathering theme is rooted in Psalms 46: “Real. Present. God.”

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.
