Welcome to Children’s Ministries of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church! We are thrilled to have you and your children joining us! We are a church that loves the little children and building them up in their faith. We believe that children need to have a real relationship with Jesus and a place to grow in the love for Him. Through hands-on and age- appropriate lessons, we are able to create unforgettable experiences and teaching the children about who Jesus is; He is their Friend, their Light, their Rock, and their Savior. We not only want to build the children up in Jesus but we want to encourage and walk alongside families as they grow in Him and together. We have lots of fun programs and events throughout the year for kids and their families to enjoy from Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Summer Musical Camps and so much more! Feel free to check out these ministry opportunities below. For more information contact Jessica Tibben, Director of Family Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-757-5722.
Our nursery is offered during Worship Services (9:30am and 10:45am) for age infants to 3 years old. We have a skilled nursey person available for your child during those times; as well with age-appropriate toys for them to enjoy. Please check children in at the Nursery (located near the Sanctuary). *Due to COVID-19, the Shepherd of the Hills Nursery is unavailable due to safety restrictions*
Sunday School Ministry:
The Shepherd of the Hills Sunday School program is for 4 years old to 4th grade and runs every school year from September to May. Students enjoy Bible stories through many different resources including; Large Group, Games, Music, Crafts, Small Group Time, Puppets, and much more! Students join together for Large Group at the beginning of the Sunday School hour to watch and interact with the lesson for the day. After Large Group, the students head to their small groups where they have fun with crafts and many different activities! At the end their time they join back together to worship and praise God with music that will get them singing and dancing! We would love to have your children join us for this fun filled hour of growing together and in our faith!
The Sunday School Program runs during our 9:30 Service from 9:15 to 10:30!
Registration for the new year will be up soon – be on the lookout for more information to come!
