Women’s Bible Study

Our purpose statement for Women’s Ministry at Good Shepherd is “Renewing your Thirst for God and Pursuing Genuine Relationships.” In Woman’s Bible study, we are growing in the Lord as we read and study His Word, and we are enjoying meaningful friendships by being together. We’d love to have you participate for an amazing year of spiritual growth and fellowship.

This year, we will study the book of Ephesians. In the first three chapters, we will study doctrinal truths which are foundational for every believer. In the last three chapters, we will learn and be challenged as we study practical instruction on how to live our our life in Christ. We will come away rooted and grounded in God’s Word and will come to experience the breadth and length and height and depth of the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge! 

This study uses the English Standard Version and is an inductive Bible study with questions that direct us to observe, interpret, reflect, and apply what we have learned. Our part in following Him is a willingness to set aside time to look at what the Scripture is saying, thereby drawing us into a closer relationship with Him. 

Women’s Bible study will have two start-up dates depending upon which day of the week you are able to come. The Tuesday Evening groups start on September 24th and the Wednesday groups on September 25th.

Mom to mom

Moms with little ones meet once a month to hear a special speaker and discuss topics on marriage and parenting. Fellowship, encouragement, mentoring and fun is the focus of the time together. This is a free gathering and children’s classes are available for birth – Kindergarten at no additional cost. We also have a homeschool classroom available.

We will gather on the second Thursday of every month beginning in September and concluding in May. If you plan to attend one of our gatherings in the 2024-2025 season, we are asking you to complete a one time registration for yourself and your little ones. This will help us plan for the year for you and for our kid programs.
