Childrens Ministry

"These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up." (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)


Our children’s ministries at Shepherd's Community exist for the purpose of motivating and equipping children to know, love, and obey God. We want our children to grow up consumed with God and to become hard-followers of Jesus Christ, and so we labor unto that end.

We are currently offering “children’s church” every week during the 10:30am Sunday morning worship service, for children to engage in more age-directed learning (ages 4 – 3rd grade). During this time, our children are presently engaged in a study of God’s wisdom in the Proverbs title “The Way of the Wise” (Desiring God curriculum).

Though we gladly and excitedly welcome children of all ages to participate with the larger body in corporate worship, we are trying to offer a solid “children’s church” program, primarily for those parents who believe that this type of learning is a crucial tool to help them raise their children in the will and desires of God.

During the 9:00am Sunday School hour, we offer several Bible classes for children from 3 years old to 5th grade. Our youth group (6th – 12th grade) also meets during this hour to pray, study the Bible together, and just hang out. We are committed to loving your children, praying for them, and modeling the character of Christ before them.

Nursery care is offered in both the 9:00 and 10:30 am hours, for children up to 2 years old.

For all of our children programs we are dedicated to ensuring the saftey and comfort of each child. We have created a set of policies for our teachers and staff to follow. If you would like to familiarize yourself with this policies click here

We look forward to knowing and serving you and your children!
