Youth and Children

Children  Shepherd U is on Summer Break (please check out the Summer Programs Tab)

“Shepherd University” is our Sunday School and meets at 9:00am each Sunday. This custom designed university occupies the top floor of our church and is based on a Biblical Cityscape. The lessons are taught using the multiple intelligences approach. Lessons in music, games, art, cooking, stories, drama, puppets, science, & video to teach the stories of the Bible.

If you would prefer that your children remain with you in Worship, a kit with coloring sheets and crayons are located with the Ushers.  On the Chapel side there is a play mat and quiet toys for the young ones to use during worship.


Confirmation is a two year program which instructs 7th and 8th graders in our faith. The end of the program is an opportunity to join our congregation and a confirmation of their vows of baptism.

Teen Faith in Action – meets during the 10:00 am worship on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.  The group has come from our youth telling us that they want more opportunity to do mission work.  They want to make a difference in our world.  Two projects have been chosen for this group this year:  Feed My Starving Children and the CWS Blankets and Tools project. 


We want to also introduce you to our Safe Church logo:  

When you see this logo you know that the leaders have been background checked, that safety will be maintained with the two deep rule and these leaders have received special training, so there is never a question that all of our children are kept safe and loved at CCA!
