Children's Ministries at Good Shepherd!
Join us every Sunday from 9:30 to 10:15 as we use art, drama, music and games to learn about the Bible and the joy of being God’s children. Stay and worship with us at 10:30 where the kids are always welcome to help lead Kids’ Time in front of the congregation each week with Tor Johnson, our Director of Children’s Ministries and Performing Arts.
Sunday School is for ages 3 through 5th Grade. Register here.
We’re also offering a new ministry for young parents with infants through 2 year olds. You can enjoy some relaxing fellowship time with your kids and other parents in room 226 during Sunday School time. There will be some soft play equipment and toys for the kids while parents get to know each other a little better. Contact Tor Johnson for more information.
Our Advent/Christmas Presentation will be happening on Sunday, December 22, between services. It will be full of wonderful stories and songs presented by the children.
Palm Sunday Presentation
We will, once again, present our Passion/Easter Story on April 5 and April 12. This dramatic telling of Christ’s death and resurrection is especially poignant when presented by children. Lots of songs will be sung too.
Our 2020 Vacation Bible School theme will be “Discovering Noah’s Ark through Art and Songs.” Three year olds to 5th graders are welcome to join us June 8-12 from 9:00-12:00 as we learn all about Noah’s Ark and work on the short musical, “100% Chance of Rain.” We will present the musical on Friday, the 12th, for our families and again on Sunday, the 14th, for the congregation.
Tor Johnson is our Director of Children’s Ministries and Performing Arts. Tor has been a staff member at Good Shepherd many years, working with children and families, mostly through drama and music ministries. Tor directs all of the plays and musicals at Good Shepherd as well as conducts the Chorister Choir for 4th-6th graders, and he leads our Summer Musical Theater Camps. He is excited to be adding more drama to Children’s Ministries as a way of enhancing the stories of Jesus and the Bible. If you are interested in volunteering for Sunday School and/or Vacation Bible School, please contact Tor.
