Children are a vital part of the ministry at Church of the Good Shepherd! 

Sunday School 


COGS loves kids!


In-Person Worship with Children


Children are welcome at COGS, and we encourage parents to bring children of all ages to our worship services. 


Pre-School - 5th Grade 

Sunday School is on summer recess and will return August 20,23. Classes emphasize the teachings of Jesus, inclusion, selfless love for others, peace, social justice, love of creation, and life-long learning.  Classes include a lesson followed by an activity to supplement the lesson.


One of the highlights of our 11:00 AM service on Sundays is the Children's Message, a.k.a. "All Ages" message. Children join us to hear a special message from Pastor Sarah and participate in a unison prayer with the congregation.


Options for Parents, Caregivers, and Children to attend our 11:00 AM in-person worship: 


Option #1: You are welcome to have your children sit with you in the sanctuary; we have a bag of activity goodies for each child available in the back.

Option #2: We have a table at the back of the sanctuary with coloring books and activities. This is a quiet area with seating for adults along the back wall.  Please join your child there.

Option #3: After Children's Time, your child between the ages of pre-K and 12 may join us for Sunday School.  Our Sunday school teacher will lead your child to class. 


Infant & Toddler Care 


Our loving caregivers are here to care for your little ones during worship service. If you are new here, please feel free to introduce yourself and your child to Emma, who cares for children in the nursery, just down the hall from the sanctuary. 


We have age-appropriate toys, books, and a changing station available.
