Children's Sunday School Classes 


Welcome back to Sunday School at Church of the Good Shepherd!  We're eager to see and hear and have fun with you either online and/or in-person!  


On Sept. 19th, there will be two Sunday School options:

9:15am-9:45am        On Zoom (contact the church office for the Zoom link)

10:00am-11:00am    In-person in Jordan Hall with masks and social distancing


Our topic in September will be Joseph and his amazing dream-coat.  Feel free to wear or show a colorful coat or blanket during our time together!



Age Group Classes ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


On-line Sunday School, 9:15am-9:45am

We explore fun surprises in the Wonder Box which gives us a hint about the Celebrate Wonder lesson.  We enjoy talking about the video story, and sharing how we can practice what we've learned with our families and with other people.


In-Person Sunday School, 10:00am-11:00am

We gather together to learn about the Celebrate Wonder story, and then break up into smaller groups for Pre-School / Elementary ages, and Middle School / High School ages to participate in various activities.
