Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

Elementary Sunday School
6-9 year olds | Led by Vickie Baselski & Marsha Callow
This class is creatively designed to explore the stories of Scripture through the lectionary and engage the liturgical season through art, games, and snacks.
Middle School – 6th-8th grade | Led by Natalie Williams Using components of the Walkwith901 program, students gather for spiritual formation and reflection on liturgical seasons through art, music, and cultural exploration to integrate principles of social justice into their day to day lives.
High School – 9th-12th grade | Led by Justin Merrick Each Sunday is a lively, open, thoughtful discussion time to discuss pertinent current topics and how as Christians we approach them. Trips to coffee shops, breakfast joints, and other local venues with various volunteers and clergy are part of this Sun- day time together.
