Christian Education


The purpose of Christian Education at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church is to guide in the learning, understanding, and living of our faith by providing educational opportunities for all disciples.

Sunday School

Classes are available for ages 3 through adult.  They meet each Sunday from 9:45 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. during the months of September through May.  A list of the current Sunday School staff can be found here.



Confirmation is a two-year program for 7th and 8th graders, with a pre-confirmation class for grade 6. The program has five parts: Sunday School, weekend retreats, monthly instruction with Pastor, weekly instruction with the two adult leaders, and parental instruction at home. Confirmands usually affirm their baptism on Pentecost Sunday.


Puppet Ministry

This ministry is open to all youth.  The puppeteers occasionally add skits to both Sunday School openings and worship services.  They are lead by Stephanie Gildone.

First Holy Communion

To prepare our young disciples to receive the Lord's Supper, Pastor conducts three classes for second graders and up during lent. Children completing all three classes receive Holy Communion for the first time on Palm Sunday.

Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible School serves as a model for nurturing young disciples and for sharing our faith with others.  VBS is open to all children in the community, with older children volunteering as helpers. Directors Amy Gallagher, Alyson Clark and Amy Sanford encourage all to register early with their friends for this year's program.
