Welcome to Chapel's Faith & Family!

This interactive Bible lesson is a great way for your family to gather around God's Word and read, listen, watch, sing, and do activities together that help you learn more about God's great love for you in Jesus.

Jesus, Our Good Shepherd

Jesus is the Good Shepherd who laid down His life for us. He promises to lead, guide, and protect us.


In today's Bible lesson, Jesus tells us that He is our Good Shepherd. Why do you think He said that?

Opening Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us and taking care of us. Help us to listen and learn about how You sent Jesus to be our Good Shepherd. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

The Lord's Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.

are our Good Shepherd and we are Your sheep. Amen.
