"TRAIN A CHILD IN THE WAY HE SHOULD GO, AND WHEN HE IS OLD HE WILL NOT TURN FROM IT."
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.
Shepherd provides a Confirmation Program for 6th-8th grade students.
Classes held Sunday mornings through May 19, 2019
The First Sunday of each month is Family Worship Day (No classes). We invite families to worship together every Sunday but Family Worship Day is an opportunity to highlight the importance of the family worshipping together.
Once again, 6th and 7th grade students and adult leaders will travel to Camp Lakotah (just east of Wautoma) this summer for Confirmation Camp! Students will grow closer to Jesus and closer to each other through morning lessons, afternoon activities, evening worship and small groups. Please contact Chad Jacobsenfor more information.
Thank you for the amazing opportunity to share the love of Jesus with your children. We are excited to ROAR in 2019!
SO-SEW SATURDAY - CHILDREN & VOLUNTEERS
WE'RE BACK IN ACTION!
PLEASE CHECK OUT THE COMPLETE SCHEDULE BELOW (1st Saturdays of the month)
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). If you enjoy sewing, please stop by the Information Center at Shepherd and pickup a sewing packet. Take it home and sew the strips together (instructions included). Whenever you finish, simply return it to the Information Center. Our Kidz Konnection and Confirmation students and the residents at Cecilia Place have enjoyed knotting your creations. Thanks for sharing your gifts!
We will be traveling to serve the residents of Worthington, MN this summer! Students and adult leaders will be painting, building wheelchair ramps and decks, doing drywall, roofing and doing light home repair as we share the love of Jesus with our new friends from Minnesota! We currently have 100 youth spots for this trip. Anyone registering after the first 100 or after October 14th will be put on a waiting list and we will work hard to get you a spot if at all possible. If you have any questions about the 2019 Worthington High School Mission Trip, please contact Chad Jacobsen.
