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!

Senior High (aka "The Flock")

What do loading bags of mulch into the back of a pick-up truck, doing a trust fall, or eating s'mores over a campfire in someone's backyard all have in common?  They are activites one would be able to do with Good Shepherd's Senior High Youth Group, "The Flock"!

The heart of The Flock is the Sunday morning meeting, where students discuss a variety of topics that help build and form the faith of our senior high youth.  Topics range from current events to common social issues faced in high school and how students feel called to respond through their faith in Christ.  It's all about how students can take their faith outside into their homes, schools, and neighborhoods.  

Outside of Sundays, The Flock is active in service projects and fellowship events on a monthly basis.  Regular volunteer opportunites at Tikkun Farm (an urban farm in Mt Healthy) or Vida E†erna–Iglesia Luterana, aka VEIL, give students the opportunity to serve others.  Backyard campfires, hikes in the woods, whitewater rafting, or game nights help forge lasting relationships.  Senior High students can also take advantage of weekend overnight retreats during the school year or summer trips to the National Youth Gathering, whitewater rafting, or week-long service projects out-of-state.

If you have questions about The Flock or would like information on how to join, contact Jen Jarman at jjarman@goodshepherd.com.
