Advent Family Event

Saturday, December 5, 2015 - 10:00am - 11:30am

The anticipation of Christmas is what the four weeks of Advent are about. Families looking for a way to make the Advent season special can join us on Saturday, December 5 at 10am for our annual Advent Family Event. This year each family unit will create crafts that incorporate our theme of a Global Christmas. While child friendly, this event is not just for children! Families of every age and stage are encouraged to come!



Is it possible to have fun while learning? Can confirmation be about heart knowledge as well as head knowledge? We think so! Read on to learn more . . .

The Confirmation program at Good Shepherd is for students in 7th and 8th grades. Our program focuses on serving, learning and having fun. Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15am during the school year. In addition, students attend a monthly peer group meeting for more in-depth sharing and a monthly Fun or Serving Event. Students are confirmed in the fall of their freshman year.

Confirmation Points

Confirmation students are expected to actively participate in the life and ministry of the church. To that end, a "point system" has been developed to encourage students to engage in a variety of experiences.

Students will select from the following areas to accumlate a total of 40 points during the program year. Points should come from at least three different areas with half coming from Group A.

Group A (must total 20 from this group):

  1. Sermon Notes -- 2 points
  2. Acolyte -- 2 points (7th graders)
  3. Reader (8th graders) -- 2 points
  4. Communion Assistant (8th graders) -- 2 points
