Search Scripture … Find Community
The Disciple Bible Study Series is a core component in adult education at Church of the Good Shepherd. This program provides people with a working knowledge of the Bible in a small group that becomes an experience in Christian community. The study format creates the opportunity for people at different points in their faith journey to wrestle with questions and share the way the Bible speaks to them. Disciple also helps people make time for spiritual growth by establishing a regular time for reading and reflecting on scripture and developing a daily pattern of prayer. Whether you are new to the study of the Bible or have been a life-long student, you will discover that the fellowship and commitment of Disciple makes studying the scriptures a life-changing experience.
