ANNOUNCEMENT: Last day of Church School for 2016-2017 season is Sunday, June 11.   See you in Sept.

Church School begins the first Sunday after Labor Day.  Classes are held during the regular church service.  Children ages 5 – 13 are welcome. Older children and youth volunteer at the many fundraisers and community events hosted by the Church of the Good Shepherd. Church School is a wonderful opportunity for children to begin to learn the helpful lessons needed in life….learning to sit quietly, learning about music, learning about giving to others, and even learning to read. We don’t expect children to be quiet–it comes with years of practice, time and patience. It’s more important that they enjoy the experience. Children are always a pleasure to have at the services.

The Sunday School teacher is Marianne McChesney. She is a teacher in the Newton South High School with years of practice and endless patience!!

The Third Sunday Of Each Month Is Children & Youth Sunday: – a church service presented by the members of the Church School.  Children read the lessons, choose the music and present the sermon.  It’s a great way for kids to understand that they are an important part of the Church of the Good Shepherd.
