Children at Good Shepherd Baptist Church have many different ways to learn about the Bible while having fun and making lasting relationships. Whether they are playing sports at Mega Sports Camp or Upwards, worshipping during Children's Church, or earning patches at AWANA, there is a place for every child that comes to Good Shepherd Baptist Church! No matter what, children are taught to love God and love people.
Come join in the fun, and see what we are talking about firsthand!
Good Shepherd Baptist Church offers both Upward Basketball as well as Upward Cheerleading. Coaches use practices and games to teach and build basketball and/or cheerleading skills while making sure the kids learn about God and have a good time. Children will also learn teamwork and build self-esteem in this program, making for a positive sports experience. During practices and every game's halftime, the Gospel is presented to athletes and spectators.
