Children Sunday School



In learning the story of Stephen (Acts 6-7), the first martyr, the children in Sunday School learn how we are crushed by and enraged at the accusations of God’s Law, but the Gospel comes to bring peace and quietness with the forgiveness of our sins. Talk with your children and point out that in church we hear from the pastor the same Word of God that Stephen preached:
“Lord, do not hold this sin against them




Confirmation


Confirmation is a lifelong Christian education and relational experience, within the congregation, that began when you came to faith in Jesus Christ. It is also a deeply held Lutheran tradition of formal classroom instruction. Our approach at Good Shepherd is to have two years of focused instruction (Sept-May) beginning in the 8th grade school year. The 8th grade classroom time is Wednesdays (6:30-8:00 PM) starting September 12th in the Youth Room. The 9th grade classroom is 5:00-6:30 PM. For more information, speak with Family Life Minister Curtis.
