Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study

The Sunday Morning Bible Study has met most Sundays, September through May, since 1994, and is always open to members and visitors of all ages. We look forward to meeting again once our church returns to in-person gatherings!

Although we are a fun and supportive group, our primary style of study is academic in nature. Typically, when studying a book of the bible, one chapter is read aloud, followed by discussion of historical and cultural context, literary character, and theological meaning. Biblical dictionaries, atlases, Christian and Jewish commentaries, the Koran, Confucius, video lectures, and other sources are consulted in class to enrich and inform the discussion.

Confirmation Overview

Is it possible to have fun while learning? Can confirmation be about heart knowledge as well as head knowledge? We think so! Read on to learn more . . .

The Confirmation program at Good Shepherd is for students in 7th and 8th grades. Our program focuses on serving, learning and having fun. Confirmation classes are held on Sunday mornings during the Education Hour. In addition, students attend a monthly Group Learning for more in-depth sharing and a monthly Fun or Serving Event. Students are confirmed in the fall of their freshman year.
