Christian Formation

We have several Sunday worship services from which to choose, each with a different feel and tempo. For spiritual growth, we offer a coordinated Christian Formation program for all ages. In addition to Sunday programs, the Church of the Good Shepherd also offers several weekday services and classes, to meet a variety of schedules and interests. There are many ways for people to share in the mission and ministries of the Church of the Good Shepherd.

The Church of the Good Shepherd offers several opportunities to learn about our spiritual heritage, hear and appropriate God’s word, and discuss and ponder the things of God among friends.

Adult Sunday School - Fall 2019

THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
Led by Rev. Milton Black & Rev. Philip May
9:30 a.m. in Munds Hall Auditorium
Jesus calls the Holy Spirit a “gift” who will guide us, lead us, and empower us. Yet many believers don’t experience the power and presence of the Holy Spirit in their lives. This unique curriculum provides a space in which we can explore what it truly means to “walk in the Spirit” on a daily basis. This is the fourth and final part of The Christian Life Series.

THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE for YOUNG FAMILIES
Led by Rev. William Campbell at 9:30 a.m.
in Dobbins Hall Classroom
This class explores the same material as the above class, but will be directed toward families with young children. We will examine the life-giving and creative work of the Holy Spirit for, not only our own lives, but to help guide our children, as well. The greatest ministry we can offer to children is to help their parents know Jesus as our Lord and Savior and to embrace his teachings.

PRUNE JUICE FOR THE SOUL
The Gospel for Folks Getting Old & Those who Love Them
Led by Rev. Frank Fuller at 9:30 a.m.
in Munds Hall Library
Rev. Frank Fuller will explore how faith resources can apply for those experiencing age, illness and all that comes with those chores. This class is for our more “seasoned” church members, as well as those who love them…meaning all of us!

Wednesday Evening Classes - Fall 2019

Classes Begin September 11

SPIRIT-FILLED BIBLE STUDY
Led by Rev. Philip May
from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
in the Parlor
Rev. Philip May will take a deeper look into our theme for the Fall, The Spirit-Filled Life. As we walk through this curriculum, we will have the opportunity to hear in-depth Biblical teachings and openly discuss what we will learn as a group. We will strengthen the bonds of community as we grow together, allowing our lives to be powerfully changed by the truths discovered.

BRAVE NEW WORLDS
Led by Rev. Frank Fuller
from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
in Munds Hall Library
Everyone wants to know what the future will bring.  Ancient pagans looked at sheep livers, Hebrew priests cast lots, and moderns peer at stock charts and measure CO2 emissions.  Biblical prophets strove to make clear God's will to save his ornery people.  Some of the clearest insights in the last hundred years have come from novelists who tackled the power of technology, the weaknesses of human nature and where that might take us.  This class will read and explore three prophetic visions of humanity’s future and faith in the works of 20th century writers: Aldous Huxley, Geddes MacGregor, and Walter M. Miller, Jr.
