CHILDREN & YOUTH

"TRAIN A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND WHEN HE IS OLD HE WILL NOT TURN FROM IT."

PROVERBS 22:6

You are a vital part of our church.  Your children will enjoy the interactive programs we have available.  Children Ages 3 – High School have the opportunity to grow in their faith while having fun!  From Kidz Konnection to VBS, from Confirmation Camp to High School Mission Trips – Shepherd’s youth are an active and thriving part of our congregation.

PIZZA TEAM

Throughout the year, we have many opportunities at Egg Fest, Vacation Bible School and other special events as we welcome families from our community. During these events, we serve and/or give away over 500 pizzas.

 

We'd love to serve with you on this special team as we prepare dough, top pizzas, and treat our guests.

From Sept-May our ladies meet to quilt on Monday afternoons; on Saturdays Children ages 5 & up are invited to So-Sew-Saturday. With the help of adults, the children and youth will be designing, sewing, and ironing quilts. These quilts will be donated to The Robyn's Nest. Parents can drop children off or stay for the fun! To date, the Shepherd family has worked together to create over 3600+ quilts for the Robyn's Nest (a Children's Hospital affiliation serving children in foster care), the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, and for La Causa (a crisis center for children ages 0-12).  Our hope is to resume this fall to create quilts for children at The Robyn's Nest and LaCausa, & for patients at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center.
