Sunday Morning Education

Sunday Morning Education for high school students and 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  

Meets weekly in the education wing, Room E-9. Topics vary from week to week, so grab a coffee and take a seat!


GRACEFUL LIVING  

How do we embody Christ on a daily basis and in all areas of our lives? This ongoing class focuses on deepening relationships in our lives and how God works through these relationships. All adults are welcome! Meets weekly in Underwood North.


THE GOSPEL GATHERING  

Explore the life and teachings of Jesus through very inter-active PowerPoint presentations that utilize scripture, art, music (and, yes, we do eat at times) and class discussions. Experience how Jesus' Gospel - Good News brings meaning to our twenty-first century lives. Meets weekly in Underwood West.


LIVING WORD

Explore the lectionary from a fresh and personal perspective. How is God's Word speaking to each of us in our current context? How is the Spirit prompting us in response? Meets weekly in Underwood East.


WHITTECAR CLASS

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


GENERATIONS FORUM (Sundays, January 27 - February 17) 

Good Shepherd, blessed with folks from all existing generations, is unique in its potential for strong cross-generational relationships. But before relationships can be built, first must come understanding and empathy – both gained by listening. Join all the generations for this four-week Generations Forum. A new generation will be represented each week by a panel. Each panel will be asked and answer the same questions and will teach a generation-specific skill to the audience. Meets in Underwood North.
