The Children’s Ministry is designed to provide a safe, loving environment in which children will:
Increase in their knowledge of scripture and understanding of the gospel
Grow in their relationship to God and the church
Move toward serving others.
Through the clear proclamation of the gospel and practical training in worship, Good Shepherd equips children to love and follow Christ.
