Youth Groups

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for

the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” — Matthew 4:12

Good Shepherd strives to provide a wide variety of opportunities for youth to engage and practice their faith.  From the prayer workshops for toddlers to senior high students serving folks in Appalachia, youth of all ages can find a way to practice discipleship at Good Shepherd!

Good Shepherd's Confirmation program is open to Junior High students and consists of regular Sunday classes, retreats, workshops, and service.  The program culminates in the rite of Confirmation at the beginning of a student's 9th grade year.

Faith Milestones

Good Shepherd signifies certain moments throughout the development of youth as times to learn or celebrate.  From baptism to baccalaureate, Good Shepherd provides faith formation opportunities throughout childhood.

Senior High (aka "The Flock")

Good Shepherd's Senior High Youth Group, dubbed "The Flock", picks up where Confirmation leaves off.  Sunday morning meetings/discussions are the cornerstone of the program.  Senior High students can also expect regular service events, fellowship opportunities, overnight retreats, and summer trips.


The first group many of Good Shepherd Lutheran youth belong to is Tweens.  This group is open to youth from 10 to 13 years old (4th through 6th grades).
