Sunday Morning Education

Sunday Morning Education for adults at Good Shepherd allows us to dig into God's word in a smaller, more intimate setting. Classes meet on Sunday mornings during the traditional school year, 9:30-10:30 am. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Community Class (Weekly in Education Wing, E-9)

Topics vary from week to week, so grab a coffee and take a seat!

Graceful Living (Weekly in Underwood East)

How do we embody Christ on a daily basis and in all areas of  our lives? This ongoing class will look at different ways of becoming more connected to God, to each other, and to ourselves through in-depth and lively discussions of various readings and video clips. 

The Jesus Epidemic (Weekly in Underwood West)

Jesus is contagious! Explore the weekly Gospel lectionary through interactive presentations and fun, open class discussions. Examine Jesus’ first–century life and teachings through twenty–first century eyes. Catch The Jesus Epidemic and then help spread it throughout The Triangle.

Whittecar Class (Weekly in Library)

While all are welcome in any of our Sunday Morning Education classes, the Whittecar Class is specially geared to discuss Sunday's reading with adults with developmental delays. 

Way of the Shepherd All-Church Discussion (February 25 - March 25)

All adult Sunday Morning Education (SME) classes meet together in Fellowship Hall during Lent to reflect more  deeply on our spiritual growth and walk alongside our Way of the Shepherd participants in their journey.

Health & Healing in Nicaragua (April 29 - May 13)

Pastor Tim has been working  with a cohort from Wake Forest School of Divinity for about a year now, and the  work culminated in a trip to Nicaragua. Come hear a bit about what he's been doing, how Nicaragua fits in, and how Good Shepherd might take action!
