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.

THE REVELATION OF JOHN: Light for Dark Times - IN-PERSON
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.
in Dobbins Hall Adult Classroom
RSVP to Fr. Frank to reserve your seat at fef3t@aol.com
Through the centuries, the last book of the Bible, the Revelation, has given hope to Christians through persecutions, plagues, wars, and catastrophes. The text has confused, befuddled, inspired, and enraged interpreters for two millennia. This class will try to read closely the visions of the seer John, seeking light to live by for our own times.
