Shepherd of the Hills loves children and wants them to know that Jesus loves them. We want children to know that the church is not just for big kids and grown ups. We are here to help children learn about their best friend, Jesus, grow in their faith, and find joy in serving. For more information on any of our children’s ministries, please contact Cindy Miller, Director of Children’s Ministry.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me.” (Matthew 19:14)

  • Assist with Communion
  • Follow along with the sermon using Sermon Notes Pages

We’re Growing

Sunday School (9:30 and 10:45 am)

Shepherd of the Hills Sunday school is dedicated to teaching children the Word of God and helping them grown in their relationship with Jesus. Bible stories come alive in our Sunday School classrooms, as children age preschool through 5th grade gather with their loving teachers to learn about the Bible. Our curriculum is “Group’s Digging into the Heart of God.” All children are welcome to attend Sunday school and it’s always the right time to join! We meet in the School Cafeteria across the playground from the Worship Center. See a map!

Children’s Learning Time (during the sermon at select services)

Children attending the 6:00 p.m. Saturday worship service and 9:30, 10:45 a.m. Sunday service are invited to attend a special learning time during the sermon based on the sermon text for the day. The children return to their parents in time to participate in the offering.
