Christian Education

How we educate our members in the Christian faith

Christian education is at the very heart of the church. In the educational process, the Spirit of God encounters people of all ages so that they are nurtured in faith, grow in knowledge and experience, and are inspired and empowered to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. This call to discipleship compels us to share our faith and serve others in the home, the community, and in God’s world.

Sunday School

Sunday School for children helps to provide a solid start for a lifetime of discipleship and close relationship with Christ. All classes include Bible study, and depending on the age level, may also include snacks, crafts, discussion with peers, and application of scripture to real world situations. Children and youth (age 2 through grade 12) gather for Children’s Worship in the sanctuary at 9:15 a.m. and head to separate classrooms for Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. Sunday School classes are held from the Sunday after Labor Day through the third Sunday in May.
Learn more about Sunday School.


Children’s Worship

Each Sunday during the school year, we have a Children’s Worship service at 9:15 a.m. in the sanctuary. During Children’s Worship, we discuss a Bible story, practice Children’s Choir songs, and say a prayer. Children are dismissed to their separate Sunday School classrooms at 9:30 a.m. Additionally, we have a Youth Sunday the third Sunday of each month where children participate as service assistants (ushers and lectors).

Catechism Classes

Children in grades 6 and above meet with the Pastor Sunday mornings from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., September through May, for confirmation classes. Please contact the church office if you’d like your child to attend Confirmation Classes.


Adult Bible Study

It is vitally important that Christians continue their education through adulthood. Continued Bible study:

  • Prepares parents to provide a good example and assistance for children who are just beginning their faith journeys.
  • Enriches our faith lives along with attending worship services and receiving the sacraments.
  • Provides a great opportunity for fellowship within the Lutheran community and guidance for congregational lay leadership.

Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Fox Chapel offers two bible study opportunities for adults.
