Following Jesus is a lifelong commitment and journey for every disciple and requires a basic set of knowledge and skills. At Good Shepherd, we recognize that Christians are not magically imparted this knowledge, but instead are formed by Bible study, prayer, worship, experience and intentional learning.
We offer these opportunities for adults to strengthen their life in Christ individually, as families, and as a community striving to be a place of purpose sharing God’s liberating and life-giving love.
Wednesday at Good Shepherd (WAGS)
Join us for a delicious home-cooked supper and to learn more about the intersections of life and faith.
Education for Ministry (EfM)
An in-depth, formal study of theology and scripture developed by the School of Theology at the University of the South. The serious study of Scripture, Theology and Church History, for people interested in knowing more about Christian faith, strengthens lay people for fuller service in God’s kingdom.
Tuesday Bible Study
Read, mark, learn and inwardly digest the Scripture lessons appointed for Sunday worship. Good company and lively conversation make this study an enjoyable time.
B2B Study Groups
As in Back to the Bible. Small groups meet regularly to study and grow in their understanding of scripture and theology. Engaging conversation and friendly fellowship lighten the load for busy people.
