When children are baptized, the Church makes a promise to walk with them and their parents on the journey.  At Good Shepherd Lutheran, we know it is a privilege to participate in helping to guide children and their parents along life’s many milestones of faith.  Whether one’s feet are big or small, fresh or worn, running or crawling:

Good Shepherd is Intergenerational
Children, Youth and Adults are;
Together on the Journey, Sharing God’s Love

Good Shepherd’s Inter+Gen Ministry Team provides a variety of offerings to help grow faith in children, families and people of all ages.  Throughout the year we offer events, faith learning and service opportunities that connect our children to faith filled adults.  Jesus is the heart of all our offerings.


Nurturing Life-Long Faith Learning

Sunday School with Worship
Sundays at 9:45am
During the school year, children’s faith learning is offered on Sunday mornings during 9:45 worship for K thru Grade 4.  Faith learning at Good Shepherd is both Christ-Centered and Relationship-Centered to nurture children on their faith journey.

Grace-Filled Actionable Worship

We strongly encourages families to worship together weekly.  Studies have shown that children who worship beside their key adults are 86% more likely to grow up to be faith-filled adults.  At Good Shepherd we work to create worship that is meaningful and accessible to all ages.  Parents and grandparents can choose to have their children sit with them throughout the entire worship service or begin in Sunday School.

Communion Classes & Celebrations

This Sacrament of Holy Communion class is open to people of all ages, which is current with the ELCA’s communication regarding First Communion. This class provides an overview for those receiving the Sacrament for the first time and others wanting a refresher on its message.  We ask that a parent attend class with their child.  To read more on this topic, click here.
