Adventure Kingdom is Good Shepherd's Sunday school program -- an engaging way for children Pre-K 3 through 5th grade to discover their own special place in Christian Community. Age-appropriate materials allow children to use all their senses for learning with a focus on Jesus' parables, Bible stories, and the liturgical actions that show us what it means to be Episcopalian.
Adventure Kingdom is an opportunity for your kids to encounter God and leave changed!
Register for Adventure Kingdom! (one registration form per child, please)
