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.
