Youth & Education

Youth and family ministry at Shepherd of the Mountains means providing fun and faith building experiences for youth of all ages. We strive to support parents and caring adults, through prayer and resources, to be formative in the faith journey of all our congregation’s children. We hope that youth experience that this is a great place for them where they know we care about their relationships with God, their family and their friends.

Education at Shepherd of the Mountains means growing in faith and stretching the horizons of all ages. From meeting in homes to classrooms to retreats, we gather to expand the mind and nourish the heart. Help yourself and others discover more about God’s grace.
