Did you know that you have 940 weeks from the time your child is born until they graduate? That time goes surprisingly fast! Our greatest desire is to help equip you as the faith leader of your kids and partner with you as your kids grow in faith. Our program "Go! Join the Story" is the name of our Sunday morning program where we create fun and exciting, age-appropriate environments that will help kids connect with Jesus and one another and love coming to church. Scroll down to learn about all the opportunities we have for your children at Shepherd of the Hills.
Shepherd is excited to begin a new curriculum and format for the 2019/2020 Sunday School year! “Go! Join the Story” invites kids to become part of Biblical storytelling in wonderfully imaginative ways. "Go! Join the Story” uses different storytelling methods and learning styles to help kids become involved in the Biblical narrative.
Each year kids will encounter stories from the Old and New Testaments and connect them to God’s plan of salvation in Jesus Christ. “Go! Join the Story” will have kids singing, participating in group Bible study, while building meaningful relationships with their teacher and friends.
Each quarter we will give offerings to help others. We will also celebrate Baptismal Birthdays. "Go! Join the Story" has developed themes that make Sunday mornings fresh and fun, while providing Biblical constancy kids need. The steady journey through the Bible provides the consistency kids need. We meet every Sunday morning in the lunch room between 9:20-10:30am.
What develops in children who check in with their parents every night before going to bed? What happens to a family that shares highs and lows, Scripture, prayer and blessings most every night? What are the many positive and wholesome benefits a child receives when they are given such consistent and intentional care before drifting off to sleep each night? How might a simple, five-step faith practice (FAITH5) change a child, a family, and a world for Jesus? Click here to download the PDF.
What are Faith Milestones? Faith Milestones provide a marker along life’s journey in faith that says, “This is something important, and God is here, too.” It is a faith formation practice for home and congregation that helps all generations recognize God’s presence in everyday life. Each milestone includes a training curriculum to help families use in their homes. Together, our congregation and parents will speak a blessing over their children. Each child will also receive a special gift as a remembrance of the Milestone. Click here for more information.
Every generation has a need and every generation has a gift to share. At Shepherd of the Hills we love every generation and want them to come together and share their stories of faith with each other.
Our Generations Connected in Christ Ministry brings members of households together. Whether your household is single, blended, couples, or grandparents, we have opportunities to connect in Christ.
