New Member Classes

These classes provide a good overview of the Christian faith for adults. This Bible study provides the foundation for Christians upon which they can continue to build as they participate in other Bible classes.

Please join us for a great overview of the Christian faith on Wednesday nights beginning September 19thth at 7:00 p.m. The class, which goes for nine weeks, will answer a lot of questions and will help you in our journey of faith. Many people have commented on this class that it finally pulled together all the “bits and pieces” of the Christian faith that they had heard over the years.  The class is taught by Pastor Walther.  You may email the him to register.

Babysitting is provided. Please let us know how many children need babysitting so we can plan accordingly. Materials are provided. There are no fees. Just come and learn. This class is especially important for anyone who would like to become a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Those who complete the class are welcome to become members as they “confirm” with us the teachings of Jesus that we hold to here at Good Shepherd.
