Good shepherd



Kids Church @ 9:30 & 11:00 AM

Ages 3 months - 5th grade

Our GS Kids are the heartbeat of Good Shepherd, always having lots of fun and making noise!

Kids Church is the place to be on Sundays!  Kids Church is where your child will have a great time while:

        1)  GETTING CLOSER TO JESUS by learning a "Jesus Point" that is aligned with Pastor Todd's


        2)  PRAYING POWERFULLY (usually out loud) for themselves or each other during prayer


        3)  GETTING TO KNOW THE BIBLE by learning the stories of the bible through books and                       other media, and learning how to look up, read, and understand the text of our GS Kids Bibles

             (NIV: Adventure Bible).

        4)  GROWING A HEART FOR SERVICE by doing a service project for our church, community or                 world.

Ages 3 months - TK (GS Littles) read stories, sing songs, eat snack and build relationships with each other through free play in the Good Shepherd Preschool building.

Grades K - 5th grade (GS Kids) worship, split up for age-specific instruction and build relationships through games & activities in the GS Kids Room.

cATHLEEN dEMANT, Director of Children's Ministry

Cathleen aims to make Good Shepherd kids feel happy, safe, and loved by Christ, and doesn't mind making a fool of herself to get the kids to laugh (or understand the lesson.) 

Cathleen grew up in Sacramento before going off to college at the University of Redlands. She returned to Sacramento to attend McGeorge School of Law, and spent three years as a labor and employment attorney. After spending a year working with the Good Shepherd kids, she felt called to leave her law job and commit her time to Children's Ministry. 

Cathleen works closely with her husband Joel, a lifelong Lutheran and Pastor's kid. They enjoy garage sales, fixing up their home, and spending time with their boys, Dane and Levi.
