Learning & Connection

Let’s do away with stagnant spiritual lives. We want to grow and learn. And this is just the place to grow deeper in loving God and loving others. In fact, that’s what we think a life with Jesus is all about.

Adult Opportunities

This is a place to connect and grow deeper in loving God and loving others. At Church of the Shepherd, adult groups gather to help each other on the spiritual journey of life. We like to offer a variety of groups throughout the year, so please view our most recent opportunities › or visit Guest Services in the Lobby. In the meantime, here’s a quick look at the type of things you can expect:

  • Community Groups: These groups meet together on an on-going basis in homes, and usually dive deeper into scripture based on our current sermon series. To find a group or start a new one, contact our Spiritual Formation Pastor, Ben McWhorter-Rush (ben_rush@coswired.org).
  • Classes: These classes explore the Bible or read a book together for a set amount of time.

Senior Gatherings

This is a place for seniors to continue on their faith journey and engage with others to share this exciting time of life.

  • Forever Young Luncheon: 2nd Wednesday of each month at 11 am
  • Young at Heart Game Night: 3rd Saturday of each month, following the 5 pm worship service

Church of the Shepherd has small groups designed for all ages and stages of life. After graduating college and getting out on my own, I was able to get plugged in with small groups that provide a safe place to ask questions, discuss biblical teachings, evaluate Christianity in modern society, and gain new insights on the principles that drive my faith.
