Another summer has flown by and the start of Sunday School for the 2017/2018 season is just around the corner–this coming Sunday, in fact! It seems like just yesterday we were thanking our teachers and applauding our students for a great 2016/2017 year.
We kicked off the new season with a successful Homecoming BBQ last weekend. It was wonderful to see our church family come back “home” to our parish; sharing a meal and catching up. Thanks to our Vestry for all the yummy food and our congregation for all the delicious desserts!
I have to say, I am super excited for this school season! Our schedule is packed with exciting Youth Fellowship lessons, bible stories, new Buzz curriculum boxes for each classroom (including Preschool!), Outreach projects and even a few Youth Sunday’s where the kids take on lead roles throughout the service.
Speaking of exciting activities planned, we’ll be having our first (well…first in at least 10 years) Bring a Friend Sunday on October 1st. We are inviting all of our Sunday School kids to bring a friend! Each child that brings a friend will be entered in a raffle for a gift card and other goodies!
I hope you join us next Sunday. I’ll be downstairs in the classrooms if you have any questions or would like to chat. And if you haven’t yet registered, its super easy! Just click the link at the top of the Sunday School page that says “Sunday School Registration”.
Looking forward to a fantastic Sunday School year!
Homecoming Weekend Barbecues

Following each service, the Vestry is serving hot dogs, corn-on-the-cob, salads, and water ice.
Everyone is invited to bring baked goodies to share.
Whether you’re a ‘regular’, only come every few weeks, haven’t attended in months or have never been at all–come join us for our Homecoming BBQs and enjoy the wonderful fellowship Good Shepherd has to offer!
