Our middle school youth group is called LITE, our high schoolers LITE, and summer programming is IGNITE. We have used the IGNITE theme for the past several years. The idea is that we are all called to FIRE OUR FAITH together!

IGNITE—Good Shepherd youth group in the summer–IGNITE–begins Wednesday, June 12, after our worship service. IGNITE is for youth who have completed 6th-12th grade. As with all activities at Good Shepherd, ALL are welcome!
