Families

Family Inclusive Philosophy

Family seating is situated near the front of the worship space to provide a flexible area where children can play, draw, or create while also remaining part of the worship service. Parents should sit adjacent to the children’s area to encourage children to play quietly and engage in worship as appropriate.

Worship Bags contain items to help children learn the rhythm of worship and participate in concrete, age-appropriate ways. Parents can find instructions on how to guide children in the bags. Ask a greeter where to find these as you enter the service.

The nursery is available for children under age 4 on Sunday mornings.  Our nursery staff are trusted members of Christ Our Shepherd who offer a friendly nurturing environment for children.

Growing in faith is both fun and essential, especially with friends. Christ Our Shepherd offers ways to learn more about Jesus’ pathways for us. Classes for all ages are offered on Sunday morning and throughout the week.
