Carol and the Belles Children's Christmas Musical

CALLING KIDS OF ALL AGES! We want YOU to be in the cast of our special Christmas musical, "Carol and the Belles." Our performance will be on Saturday, December 9 at 4:00 p.m.  

Rehearsals begin in early September and are held on Sundays at SHEPHERD'SGROVE from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. (lunch is served at noon.)

Here's a synopsis of the story: It's 1954, and at Big Bill's Drive-In restaurant, where Christmas decorations stay up all year long, excitement has never been higher. They've just won the network's Christmas at the Drive-In contest and will host the live telecast of the Rock & Roll Christmas TV Special! When a big snow storm ends up cancelling the Rock and Roll Christmas Special, the annual pageant at Big Bill’s Drive-In proclaiming the birth of Jesus takes its place, reminding us of what the Good News means.

For more information, reach out to Tracy Coggins at or by calling (949) 683-9279 .

Whether your kids are in elementary school or are still in diapers,
there’s a special place for them at Shepherd’s Grove.


At Shepherd’s Grove Children’s Ministry, we ensure your child’s experience is a positive and safe one. During our 11:00 am service, 6th grade students and below will learn about Jesus in a safe, fun, hands-on, and creative setting in our Fellowship Hall. Children can check in on our side door of Fellowship Hall at "Fireside Alcove," before service. Here your child will be greeted by one of our team members.

Our mission is to help our children learn about Jesus and build a relationship with Him. Throughout the year, we have several family events, and encourage volunteers to join our team whenever possible. We love to share the love of Christ through activities and events at Shepherd's Grove.

If you have any questions about Children's programs at Shepherd's Grove, please visit the CONNECT table on Sunday or email us.
