9:45 a.m. Sunday School & Nursery

All children in grades Pre-K 3 through 5th are invited to participate in Sunday School.  Our class time is set up to mirror many of the elements of an adult worship service including age-appropriate prayer, lessons and music. Children join their families in church before communion. Sunday School at Good Shepherd is worship for children. 

10:00 a.m. Holy Eucharist Rite II

Our Rite II service is well attended and includes music, Choir, Children's Choir (once monthly), Holy Communion and features more contemporary language than a Rite I service. Sunday School children join their families in church prior to communion. Everyone is welcome.  This service usually concludes by 11:15 a.m. 

  • Youth in grades 6-12 are invited to sit together during the 10:00 service as a group or individuals may sit with their families.  Good Shepherd Youth are an active community and many young parishioners participate fully by serving as Acolytes on a rotating schedule. Be sure to visit our Youth Page to find out about the many opportunities available.
