Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Sunday School will strive, in a fun way, to:
- Bring children and Youth closer to God by acquainting them with the Word of God and teaching them about Jesus.
- Teach and encourage students to reflect Jesus’ characteristics.
- Provide opportunities for fellowship
Our Nursery attendants are allowed the opportunity to explore and play with the toys in a safe environment while the parents partake in the Adult Sunday School, a Bible study led by Pastor Alsop in the Sanctuary.
Our Toddlers-Fifth Graders are utilizing an LCMS-based curriculum entitled “Growing in Christ.” The materials introduce the children to the stories of the Bible and provide for relevance to the Small Catechism and hymnal, as well as the fundamental underpinnings of the Lutheran Church. Our teachers take traditional learning and make it fun, thus providing for an experience the children want to come back to each Sunday.
Our Junior High studies (Sixth-Eighth Graders) are utilizing “Grapple.” The materials of the curriculum are age appropriate and life-experience appropriate to the outside influences our pre-teens and teens are confronted with everyday. This class is team taught and breaks off into dynamic discussions that help drive the lesson home and create a desire for the students to return every Sunday for more spiritual enrichment.
Our High School studies (Ninth-Twelfth Grades) are exploring “FaithWeaver.” This curriculum provides for reinforcing evidence of how God works in people’s lives and includes discussion as to how God works in the student’s life and how that student can be a vessel of witness to others.
Our Older Teen/Young Adult Bible Study is a forthcoming addition to our Sunday School program. This will be a leader led small-group Bible study. Please check back for details on this group and when it will kick-off.
Adult Bible Study is led by Pastor Alsop in the Sanctuary during the Sunday School hour. Parents, congregational members, friends of the church, and visitors alike are welcomed and encourage to attend.
