Adult Education at Good Shepherd

We believe that God’s Word is “a light for our path,” (Ps 119:105), a light that illuminates our darkest hours, helps us make our way, and shows us how to see each one another clearly – through God’s eyes.

In various small groups, during Sunday morning worship and education hour, and on Wednesdays nights, we gather in Bible study, in conversation, in shared exploration of challenging current events and issues, but above all in the fellowship of Christ Jesus.

Our goal in all that we do is to grow in our faith in God, and our love of one another – and of the world – as we seek to live faithful, and fruitful lives.

Contact Pastor Karl Jacobson with questions.

Fall 2017 Lifelines Schedule

Lifelines is what we call the adult education hour at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd. On Sunday mornings in between worship services, we meet in the parlor from 9:30-10:15. We gather together to explore together the big ideas, big problems, big hopes and big promises that shape our lives. We do this using the Bible and our Lutheran heritage as resources for making sense of a life faith, hope and love.
