For Our Children

May is here and this month we will be talking about Commitment! Commitment is making a plan and putting it into practice.
Our memory verse for this month will be from 1 Timothy 1.8 - "Training the body has some value. But being godly has value in every way. It promises help for the life you are now living and the life to come."

Middle and High School Summer Adventure - Rock n Water
June 16th-21st 

We know, it's been a rough year and we all need something to look forward to. Here at Good Shepherd Youth, we are planning towards taking middle and high school youth on our annual summer adventure with Rock n Water. It's a time to get away, sleeping in a tent/hammock/under the stars, conquering rapids, rocks, and our own fear. So, if you want to save a it now because space is limited, and anticipation is high! We have numerous scholarship and payment options available so don't let money get in the way. Reach out to Josh and he can work something out! Click here for more details about Rock n Water.
