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.  

 

In addition, below is a link to Seeds Family Worship and Go FIsh Resources to help engage your kids in fun bible-based activity.

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!
