Sunday Morning Education

Sunday Morning Education 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, 10:00-10:45 am. All are welcome and encouraged to attend!

The Gospel Gathering led by David Cope

Come, enjoy this Bible study centered around expanding our understanding of the Gospel and increasing our faith, complete with interactive slide shows.  This fall we’ll explore the only complete biography in the Old Testament – the life of David.  We’ll learn why this complex and complicated individual was known as “a man after God’s own heart,” what he meant to Jesus, and how he affects us today. Meets weekly in Underwood West, and Mondays at 7:00pm on Zoom.


An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith led by Barb Sibley

God comes to us “disguised” as our lives. Come and discover how! This discussion-based class delves into how we can encounter God in our everyday lives. Each chapter of “An Altar in the World” by Barbara Brown Taylor explores a way of discerning the sacredness of our “ordinary” moments, such as waking up to God, being present to others, and living with purpose. Participants who would like to are encouraged to purchase the book on their own, but this is not required! Meets weekly in Underwood North.


Whittecar Class with various leaders

This inclusive class is designed to be appropriate for adults with developmental delays. Open to all, the class provides an informal and fun opportunity to study how Sunday’s Scripture readings relate to participants’ lives. Meets weekly in the Library.
