SHEPHERD OF THE HILLS

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.​​​​​​​



KIDZ KONNECTION 

Praying you are all staying safe and healthy!

Here are a few ideas to help your children stay connected to God’s Word. Attached you will find an activity that encourages writing letters to residents at Cecelia Place in Pewaukee.  We meet with the residents weekly for a devotion and have been unable to do so because of restrictions.  It would be wonderful to let them know they are still on our minds and being prayed for.  If you would like to participate please follow the instructions outlined.

 

In addition, below is a link to Seeds Family Worship, which is a site that offers families the opportunity to learn scripture verses through song.  It also provides family devotions for each verse.  

 

Go Fish Resources is another website offering free teaching materials for families.  They have started a podcast to remind children through music and Scripture that God is in control.  

 

Check them out by cicking the links below.

SO-SEW SATURDAY - CHILDREN & VOLUNTEERS

 

CHECK OUT OUR NEW SCHEDULE - SEE BELOW - CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

To date, the Shepherd family has worked together to create over 1100 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).  Please join us this fall as we create quilts for children at The Robyn's Nest and LaCausa, & for patients at the Vince Lombardi Cancer Center. There are many opportunities to serve! We would love for volunteers to join us on Monday afternoons as we prepare the quilts for our Kidz Konnection students to knot (no sewing experience required). We are also looking for a few people to sew around the edges of the quilts. Check out our fall schedule to see how you can make a difference.  Thanks for sharing your gifts!
