You're always welcome here!  Join us at Sunday school.  

Delighting in His Word because our sins are forgiven through Jesus Christ, our Savior!  We are so loved!  He has done it all!

"Thy Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path" Psalm 119:10 

YOU ARE INVITED… Coming to children and youth for the summer of 2021 here at Good Shepherd.  A different kind of Sunday School!
                                            "The Neighborhood"
"We love because He first loved us!"  1 John 4:19
9:30-10:30 AM on all Sundays in June and July, 2021
Meeting outside, starting with the fact that He first loved us, glorifying God in the name of Jesus, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we will share a life story, pair up in a game and spend most of our time rejoicing in God's love by actively caring for our neighbor.  Prepare for the possibilities as we team up to purposely love our neighbor in planned activities. Join us for 8 Summer Sunday's of being showered with His gifts!
P.S. Who is my neighbor?
You can register with the church office, or by calling 815-469-2549.
Come one Sunday, Come all Sunday’s, whenever you can and bring a friend!


Good Shepherd Sunday School's mission is to share with children the love of Christ, the Good News of the forgiveness of our sin and life everlasting in Heaven!

Sunday School supports the teaching of God's Word at home, applying it in daily situations to discern what is true and what is right. Encouraging a relationship with the God who loves us first as evidenced through His atonement for our sin by the death and Resurrection of Jesus, our Lord & Savior.
