Our program year begins in September and culminates in May. From late May - early September, formation takes a sabbath rest so that our volunteers and participants are able to enjoy some time off with friends and family.
Shepherd Studies is a lay and staff-led, small interest group designed for community building and spiritual growth. In-depth Bible and book studies promise to be both engaging and challenging.
LIVING OUR FAITH
Through commentary and conversation, this series encourages us to live out our faith at home, work, and in our community. Through a variety of mediums – book study, video series, guest speakers – followed by small group discussion, Living Our Faith encourages and supports an ongoing walk with Christ.
Episcopal 101 is open to all adult members – new-comers and longtime members alike, who wish to deepen their faith and broaden their understanding of the history of the Episcopal Church. Led by clergy, staff, and parishioners, each week we will explore topics such as: The Episcopal identity & use of scripture, political structure and organization, the sacraments, spirituality, prayer, the Episcopal Church in the news, and the history of Good Shepherd.
Episcopal 101 also serves as preparation for membership in the Episcopal Church either through baptism, confirmation, reception, or reaffirmation.
