Faith formation for young people in grades 6-12. Activities are designed to build community, establish trust and safety, and remind youth that this is their church and they are welcome within it. Youth Group meets on Wednesday evenings during the school year in "The Barn," our newly renovated youth space! Bring a friend and come check it out!
Youth are encouraged to participate as acolytes helping clergy and lay members of the parish during worship services. Youth in grades 5-12 are welcome to train for this important role. Contact the office for more information.
Each year, members of Youth Group embark on a distance service project or spiritual pilgrimage. Destinations may be regional, national, or international, but the experiences are always close to the heart of those participating. These experiences encourage community and establish lasting bonds among those attending. Contact David for information.
High School age youth are encouraged to seek confirmation preparation as an outward acknowledgement of commitment to the Baptismal Covenant. This one-year program meets weekly and culminates in confirmation with the Bishop at a special service in the fall. Please contact David to get more information or sign up online. We will have an orientation for high school students and their families on Sunday, August 21 in the Parish Hall at 11:45, following the Sunday service. Refreshments will be provided.
Quarterly, when there is a 5th Sunday of the month, our 10 AM service is youth-led with contemporary live music and teen participation in most aspects of the service. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear the perspective of our teen parishioners and what they are discovering on their spiritual journey.

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 Sunday school! (one registration form per child, please)
