Adult Formation includes education and spiritual formation. Here at Good Shepherd we try to offer various opportunities and formats. Our studies are open to all adults – young and old. Watch our blogs for new offerings – especially during Advent and Lent.
ADULT FORUM is a monthly class offered on the first Sunday of the month at 11:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. Materials/DVD Presentation is provided followed by an open discussion.
THURSDAY BIBLE STUDY meets on Thursday mornings, 9:30-11 a.m. in the Conference Room. Classes are offered in blocks depending on the length of each study. (Thursday Bible Study will begin again in September.)
BOOK GROUP (Page Turners) is a group who meets monthly on the third Sunday, at 11:30 a.m. in the Conference Room. This group uses secular books (both non-fiction and fiction) to discuss the implications they have on life. Participants share books they have found interesting and the group sets a schedule for which books to read and cover for each month. (go to link) Page Turners
