Helpful Information about Youth Programming at Good Shepherd: Regular Sunday programming happens during the school year on Sundays at 10:45 am starting in the Fellowship Hall. 

  • Sunday Youth Programming happens after Sunday worship under the leadership of 1 teacher, and 1 adult helper per classroom. 
  • Students, Sunday school teachers/volunteers, are dismissed for Sunday School at 10:30am even if the worship service has not yet concluded. This provides students an opportunity to socialize and get a treat before Sunday School starts. By 10:45, students (accompanied by a parent for children younger than 6th grade) proceed to designated classrooms.
  • A check-in and check-out sheet are in each classroom. Parents need to sign in/out their children younger than 6th grade.


Child and Youth Abuse Prevention Program

At the Annual Meeting of the Congregation on February 4, 2018, a Child and Youth Abuse Prevention Program was formally adopted by the Good Shepherd congregation.  The program was recommended by the ELCA as well as Church Mutual, the Good Shepherd insurance company, and ratified by the Congregation Council.  Legal counsel was also consulted.
