Milestone Ministry:

nurturing your child’s faith one step at a time.

Throughout the school year, GS provides an opportunity for students and their adults to celebrate important steps in their faith journey. Together you have the opportunity to attend an age-specific event, providing you with a wonderful opportunity to deepen your child’s faith (and yours) one step at a time, milestone by milestone. We call this together in faith & milestones ministry. Most TIF Events will be held on Sunday mornings. Attached is a pdf for you to review.

Ebenezer Sunday is a day Good Shepherd has set aside to look back over the past year and remember all the ways God has helped us to grow in our ministry. We give thanks to God for all God has done including the lives of our community leaders. On this the 15th anniversary of 9/11, we gave thanks for all those who provide safety--police, fire, ambulance personnel.  We invited them to join us for the picnic. Click here to see more pictures
