Christian Education

 Faith Formation

  Learn Serve and Unite

At Good Shepherd UCC, we are delighted to offer a very active, meaningful and fun Christian Education Program. Our Sunday School and other events offer a year round supply of meaningful experiences to enhance your Faith Journey.  

Our Youth and Adult Bible Study hours are offered each Sunday Morning at 9:00 am.  Our new Sunday School year begins each September and lasts through the month of May.  We currently offer four age appropriate class rooms…..Three Youth and One Adult.  All Classes are packed with interesting discussion, dvd animation, games, and crafts.

Faith Formation is the very mission of God’s church. At GSUCC  we unite each week prior to the worship hour, praying that we may grow and equip one another as followers of Jesus Christ.  That is what “Sunday School” is all about!

At GSUCC we believe that we all have an individual faith journey  so unique and so personal.  And if you ask our Sunday School Children, they will tell you how God Made Each of Us Special. There is always something new to learn and understand. Even for us who volunteer to lead. Grow with us, as our journey is one which takes a lifetime. 

Sharing God’s Love through Our Hands ….. Spiritual Practice.  At GSUCC, we believe that Christian Education is not just one hour of Sunday School, but rather a small important piece of our growth in Faith.  Studying the Bible and pursuing God’s plan for our lives.   

We serve with all our hearts in many ways through the year:            Living – Learning – Being Disciples of Jesus

The Youth Ministry of GSUCC has now grown to include a larger demographic of Tweens. This has been a welcomed change. Our Youth and Confirmands have remained very active while they continue to explore how to share God’s Love within their community.  Within their church, and with the friends they have made.  This year we offered our very first Youth Camp for our Confirmand’s, and our very first Youth Lock in/Sleep Over at the church. And did I mention our day trip to The Works! That was such a great time. Followers of Christ, Friendship, Faith and Fun ….. now that’s a mouthful!!
