Children's Ministries at Good Shepherd!

Through the partnership with parents, we want kids to learn to be lifelong followers of Jesus. We teach, with the baptismal promises in mind, to help kids know God, grow in Christ and show the love of the Holy Spirit. Kids have fun, feel safe and build relationships with God and each other.

Sunday School is for ages 2 through 5th Grade. Register here.

Meet Mandy Bond (if you haven’t already!), our Interim Director of Children and Family Ministry. Mandy, along with her husband and daughter, is a member of Good Shepherd, and she has had a long career in children, youth and family ministries. Mandy contracts for an organization called InterServe Ministries and specializes in intentional, interim work in congregations. For the next ten months Mandy will join our staff with responsibility for Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. She will help us bridge the time ahead as Good Shepherd navigates staffing both in the calling of an associate pastor and in the leadership of our children and family ministry position. Mandy knows and loves our congregation, and she will serve us well in the months ahead.

Our interim ministry opportunity provides a bridge between a former staff or volunteer led ministry to a new vision for the future. Congregations who are going through changes in their Children’s Ministry or Youth and Family Ministry are facing some important decisions. Whether a new hire is in the future or there is a  restructure of staff responsibilities, InterServe Ministries will work individually with congregations to discover possibilities, work through current changes and plan for the us well in the months ahead. Welcome Mandy!
