Preschool and Children's Ministry
At the Church at Sheppard, one of our primary Preschool and Children's Ministry goals is to support parents as the spiritual leaders of their children by offering opportunities for your kiddos to delve deep into the Bible and grow in their personal understanding of Christ.
Sunday Morning LIFE Groups are offered for children age 6 weeks up to 5th Grade. In LIFE groups, your child will learn Bible truths, create and play with other children their age.
For preschoolers (6 Weeks to Kindergarten), LIFE groups are available at both the 9:30 service hour and the 11:00 service hour. All preschool LIFE groups are located in the Preschool Place hallway directly across from the Worship Center.
For grade school children (1st Grade to 5th Grade), LIFE groups take place during the 11:00 service hour. All grade school LIFE groups are located upstairs in the Education Wing.
1st Grade: Room 207
2nd Grade: Room 205
3rd & 4th Grade: Room 203
5th Grade: Room 201
During Family Nights at Sheppard (September-May), we have AWANA Clubs
for 3 year olds through 5th grade. At AWANA, your kids will memorize Scripture, play games and learn more about how to apply the Bible to their lives. AWANA begins at 6:15 p.m.
Grade schoolers (1st- 5th) meet in the Treehouse.
Preschoolers (3s-K) meet in their classrooms in the Preschool Place hallway.
(While Babies-Twos are not quite old enough to participate in AWANA, there is still childcare available for them during Family Nights at Sheppard. Simply check your child in at their room in the Preschool Place.)
