Children and Youth

 Children  
“Shepherd University” is our Sunday School and meets at 9:00 am 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, and video to teach the stories of the Bible.
 
If you would prefer that your children remain with you in Worship, kits with coloring sheets and crayons are located with the ushers.  On the Chapel side, there is a play mat with quiet toys for the young ones to use during worship.
 
Youth
Confirmation is a two-year program which instructs 7th and 8th graders in our faith. At the end of the program there is an opportunity to join our congregation and to confirm their vows of baptism.
 
Teen Faith in Action – meets during the 10:00 am worship service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays.  The concept of this 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 “Friends of the Environment” Table.  The youth sell products one Sunday a month that help the environment, not to make a profit, but to make a difference.
 
 

 

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 and received special training in our Safe Church Policy.  There will always be a trained leader and an assistant at all child and youth events, so there is never a question that all of our children are kept safe and loved at CCA!
