Small Groups, Bible Studies, and other smaller groups are one of the most effective vehicles to develop deep relationships with others at Good Shepherd. We want every single person at Good Shepherd to be known and be connected.  Below are some of the groups available at Good Shepherd along with the contact for more information.  Our groups and opportunities to get involved are also available on the church mobile app called Good Shepherd Connect under Get Connected.  For more information on Good Shepherd Connect click here.

If you are looking for a way to get involved, connected, and build meaningful relationships with others at Good Shepherd, Small Group Ministry is a great opportunity.Small Groups typically (but not always) meet in people’s homes, rotating among group members, and usually include some form of bible study or faith conversations and growth. Many groups meet around food (which we all love, right?!) and try to find ways to serve together throughout the year.

If you are interested in being a part of a small group or want to know more please contact:  Pastor Josh Brecht
