COS  Students

Important Message - Our building is temporarily closed,  but we will still gather in community online. Please read important updates regarding worship and activities at Church of the Shepherd in light of the COVID-19 concern.

Belong together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you belong here.

The heart of Student Ministry encourages youth to love God and others through sharing, prayer, worship, and service. We guide students as they navigate life and help them discover God’s will for their lives.

The Huddle - 6th-12th grade students are encouraged to attend one of our weekly worship services at 9:15 and 10:45 am, and meet between services (approximately 10:30 am) to catch up and discuss the weekend's topic.
Fusion Youth Group - Students meet on Sunday nights during the school year, 5-7 pm, for dinner, games, and the chance to learn more about the Bible. Middle school and high school students split into separate groups for games and discussions.
COS students meet several times throughout the year for fun outings, such as paintball, escape rooms, dinner, and more. They also participate in serving projects, including Feed My Starving Children and mission trips.
