Retreats and mission opportunities
We regularly go on retreats and participate in local and national mission/service projects. We also serve with Shepherd's Table Soup Kitchen and are always open to learning about other local ministries and opportunities for us to serve.

Sunday School (9 -10 a.m.)
We split into middle school and high school classes, with each class taking time to discuss faith, prayer, scripture and how these engage our daily lives.
In confirmation, members of CGS make a "mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and ... receive the laying on of hands by the bishop" (BCP 412). Church of the Good Shepherd offers confirmation classes for youth and for adults who seek to receive the sacrament of confirmation.
About EYC at CGS
Our youth programs are for 6th-12th graders and run from September - May, but we also stay busy during the summer with various trips, formation events and get togethers.
We participate in many ministries and find creative ways to engage the parish and the community around Good Shepherd, including events like the annual Hot Chocolate Sale and the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. Check the Good Shepherd calendar and e-newsletter each week for the most up-to-date announcements on youth activities.
EYC (Episcopal Youth Community, 5-7 p.m. Sunday evenings)
Our Sunday evening gatherings aim to cultivate a desire to grow in knowledge and love of God and in friendship with one another. We meet most Sunday evenings to learn and worship together, to share dinner, and to play.
Diocesan Youth Events
We connect with Episcopal youth from other parishes around North Carolina at events like Bishop's Ball, Winter Seniors, Fall Middlers and Happening. We encourage youth at Good Shepherd to actively participate in the larger Episcopal community. More information is available on the Diocesan Youth Page.
We encourage all of our youth to be active participants in parish worship. Opportunities include singing in the choir, assisting with Children's Chapel, serving as an acolyte, kite flier, lector, intercessor or usher. David Stroud offers periodic training for new and continuing acolytes. View the current Acolyte Schedule. Contact Cheryl McFadden to find out more about serving in worship.
