Held Sundays at 9:15AM, these are provocative and interactive discussions about how faith “fits” into our daily lives. Although you are sure to learn something new, there is no preparation, no homework, no books to read before you enter– just show up! Here are some recent examples based on the work of Henri Nouwen, Walter Brueggemann, Richard Rohr, Shaine Claiborne and others:
- Jesus for President: Voting Your Values
- Sabbath as Resistance: Saying NO to the Culture of Now
- Creation and the Cosmic Christ
- You Are the Beloved, too
Adult Learning Opportunities
The Christian Scriptures contain 66 separate books, two testaments and seven distinct types of literature. Yet Christians the world over hold it as a single, bound volume we call "The Bible". Good Shepherd offers two different opportunities to explore the Bible and its message for your life:
- Sunday Morning Bible Study
is a group that reads and discusses books of the Bible and other religious writings. The group is focused on learning more about faith and sharing spiritual experiences to grow together in Christian fellowship. Current studies include the small catechism and a study of the book of Psalms. We meet in the library at 9:15.
- Treat Yourself on Tuesday Morning is a group offering a friendly space to discuss and relate scripture to our daily lives. Every Tuesday from 9:45 to 11AM we gather around coffee and goodies to read and share the implications of The Word in our daily lives. Members lead the discussion. We welcome you to join us!
Good food, good conversation...a great opportunity for men to gather in a spiritually supportive and fun environment! The Men's Breakfast group meets twice a month at Good Shepherd. Check out the calendar for dates.
New Member Gatherings
Held periodically. An opportunity to learn more about Christianity, what Lutherans believe, and life at Good Shepherd. Especially for those interested in becoming members of Good Shepherd.
Fellowship, fun and spirited sharing for "Young at Heart" senior adults. Activities are varied and reflect the interests of participants.
Enjoy informational guest speakers, day trips to theaters and museums, craft workshops to benefit the community, volunteer work for community and social service groups.
Dates and times vary...check the calendar for details. Need a ride? Just call the church office (518-458-1562).
