Sunday School has begun: If you have not already done so, please fill out a registration form for your child(ren). There are some on the sign in table. This year we will introduce a new curriculum and have a calendar of lessons and “Theme of the Day”. These are attached to the registration forms, be sure to take a copy. A suggested donation for each family is $25.00. This will help offset the cost of materials needed for each student.

This orientation is for any parents who are interested in having their child baptized at Good Shepherd. The orientation will last approximately one hour. It will be led by Pastor Phil.
