Children have a vital role in the Christian church since they are always viewed in the Bible as precious gifts of God. We offer a number of different ways for children to discover the love of God and to begin life together with Him.

Sunday Morning Youth Bible Study - We offer classes for all ages infants to high school.

Good Shepherd Lutheran School - Good Shepherd offers an affordable, quality Christian education for children preschool to eighth grade. We also offer scholarships for church members. 

Good Shepherd Early Childhood Center - Good Shepherd is blessed with one of the premier early childhood centers in the St. Louis area. This is a loving, safe, and fun place for your children.

Vacation Bible School - Good Shepherd Vacation Bible School helps children learn about Jesus and how to live by faith. VBS is open to students three years old (must be potty trained) through those entering sixth grade. Students entering seventh grade and above may register to help as volunteers. 

Baptism - St. Peter said, "Let everyone be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you will receive the gift of the Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children and to all who are afar off" (Acts 2:38-39).
