Connecting At Good Shepherd

Life groups and Sunday Morning Grow classes are an essential part of Good Shepherd UMC.  They provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering the early church worshiped in large settings in the synagogues, as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church. Thus, we intentionally strive toward community through both Sunday Morning Grow classes and home-based life groups which meet during the week.

Get Connected in Community!

Life is not meant to be lived alone. In fact, God hates loneliness. You were created to experience life with other people, which is why we encourage you to get into a life group.

A life group is a group of three or more people who gather each week in a home, workplace, at church or online. In a group you’ll typically hang out, study the Word, and pray together.


Groups come in all shapes and sizes.  The important part is that you are walking this road with others! Click the link below to email our Pastor of Connections to start living life with a group today!

Find a group that fits you or start one of your own!
