7th and 8th Grade dinner/kick off!

Fall is here!  Let’s kick it into gear!

Hi, Middle School Families of Good Shepherd!,

Our confirmation group meetings are back for the fall!! We are making some exciting changes, some twists and turns, and I hope you can come to our gathering/Parent meeting and learn all about it! Come get a taste, even if you’re not sure what this whole year might look like for you. We want to share with you our vision of 7th/8th grade group learning.
Next Thursday, Aug. 10th (some people had to be out on Aug 3rd, so we pushed it back). 6pm-7:30pm, dinner provided!
Youth and at least one parent or guardian should come to hear about the year and begin again with us!
Can you RSVP to me so we can plan food and supplies?!

Peace and all good, and Happy back to school times!,

Shaun O.

Welcome to Fall!

Hey, sorry this blog went so dormant earlier this year. We got caught up making plans for our Spring play we did, the summer camps to Mt Cross in the Santa Cruz Mtns, VBS, and now we’re looking at the new school year.

Stay tuned now for all the events beginning up with us this fall.

Reach out if you have questions!

January news/gathering

Hey, we’re getting together this Sunday night, all youth, from 5pm-7pm! (Sun, Jan 22nd)


Confirmation: Parent night (with at least one parent or guardian) is Wednesday night, February 8th from 6-7:30pm. Make sure to be there!


Then, prep for next month:

High School Retreat to Mount Cross / Santa Cruz

                February 24—26

Time to go and gather with students from across our syn- od (northern CA and northern NV) at Mt. Cross February 24th—26th (Friday to Sunday). Brooke Meredith and Na- than Hickox-Young have been part of the planning, and this retreat will be great! It’s also a time to go and “run” for office if YOU would like to be part of the Sierra Pacific Synod Youth Committee. The price rises for this retreat on January 31st. So, let’s decide if you’re going and let’s get the registrations in by Sunday, January

29th. The cost of the retreat is $120 (the youth fund is helping you out to make it this price) for the weekend. There are scholarships available too. Don’t let money keep you from it, just contact Shaun. This is worth it!
