Advent 2018 Journey Group


Advent Journey Group Has Begun!

“Angels Among Us” is the Journey Group focus for the Advent season. Debbie Ferguson will be leading Wednesday Nights @ 6:30 p.m.  December 5, 12, and 19. When we participate in a Journey group, we are learning together to follow Jesus.  We are inspired by scripture.  We learn about spiritual practices.  We are sent into our community to serve.  Through this process our lives are strengthened and we come to recognize God’s grace at work in us.  We find that our purpose is to be in a growing relationship with God. Come be a part of the journey! Register on the worship registration card or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

2019 Winter/Spring - Wednesday Night at Good Shepherd
