Parent Involvement

There are a wide variety of ways to volunteer within the children’s program. If you feel called to help in any way with the spiritual development of our children, we invite your participation!

Sunday School Storytellers have a passion for the spiritual formation of our young people, three-year-olds through fifth grade. Excellent curriculum and training are provided, but the main requirements are a love of children and a willingness to share your own faith. This is an excellent way to learn more about the Bible and our Episcopal tradition by teaching others.

Sunday School Assistants greet the class and then assist the teacher with snacks and activities. You can make a difference in the lives of our little ones, even if you aren’t a teacher!

Children’s Chapel Leaders share their love for children and worship by helping with the Sunday morning Chapel service for ages three through seven. This is a rewarding way to share the stories of our faith with little ones.

Vacation Bible School

Each summer the Church of the Good Shepherd hosts a week long Vacation Bible School program. Planning for this annual program begins in the fall. Many volunteers of all ages are welcomed and needed for various duties.

For the safety of our children, all of our Children’s Ministries volunteers are required attend “Safeguarding God’s Children” Training.

Our children’s programs could not happen without our wonderful volunteers! For more information about getting involved in our children’s programs, please contact the Church Office at 361-882-1735.
