Women’s Bible Study

For the week of:
December 14 – Registration Opens

As women who are thirsting for God and pursuing genuine relationships, we are excited to invite you to join our Women’s Bible Study 2021. We will be studying the book of Philippians using a Bible study written by a Good Shepherd team of women. This is a rich, in depth, verse by verse study exploring the major themes of joy, encouragement, and our relationship with Christ

We will continue using the framework designed last fall where everyone will meet in the small group of their choice to discuss the lessons and pray together. The hope is that in a small group of 4-7 people we will actually be able to “do life” together as well as go through the lessons. Together we will stay in the Word, stay in relationship with each other, and enjoy the experience and closeness of smaller groups.

To become a member of Women’s Bible Study you will need to register through the Good Shepherd website. Registration will open on Dec 14.  Please note that registration will be online only.

1. The cost is $10 and includes:

2. The study of Philippians sent via email formatted to print or use electronically

5. Access to resources to help you study the Bible

Mom to mom

Events

Retreat

We have postponed our Women’s Retreat until 2022.

Harvest Moon

Our annual bazaar that takes place every November was cancelled this year because of the pandemic. We hope to see you next year where we will have more than 80 vendors bringing their handcrafted items to show and sell. Vender applications open in June and close in August for the 2021 bazaar. It is a great place to browse, meet up with friends, enjoy the café and do some Christmas shopping.
