"Living In Faith" Small Groups

Are you ready for a new way to worship, pray, and experience loving community? We invite you to join us for reverent, relevant, and real gatherings based on where you feel God is calling YOU. Each group is 12 people or less and meets in person with Covid safety protocols or via Zoom or both. Groups are free of charge. Weekly sessions will include shared prayer, study, and shared actions for how we can live into our faith and engage with the community around us. 

Each group has a trained facilitator and uses vetted resources and curriculum materials that support thoughtful and eye-opening ways to bring scripture into our hearts and our lives. Groups are forming now and will begin meeting in August and September. 

Racial Justice Small Group

Do you have a heart for justice and a desire to be part of a group committed to learning about racism and taking action and doing the work to create a more just world?  Good Shepherd's Racial Justice small group is now open for newcomers who want to join us on that journey.

Currently there are 10 members of the Racial Justice Small Group; we have the capacity for 5 more to join us beginning Monday, September 13 at 7:00 PM.

Here are the details:

New members of the group are asked to take and complete the course "Intro to Power, Privilege, and Leadership" prior to Monday, September 13.  (Kris Albert will contact new members with information on how to access the course.)

We invite you to prayerfully consider joining this group of committed folks working for racial justice in our community and our world. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our group and making a difference together in Jesus name.

Richard Rohr Contemplative Spirituality Study

Anne Hohenwarter will facilitate a once-monthly small group this Fall to discuss Fr. Richard Rohr's book "The Naked Now." Our first meeting will be Thursday August 26 at 6:30 pm. This hybrid group will meet at Good Shepherd Lancaster with a Zoom option for those who would prefer to be included virtually. This group will meet from 6:30 - 8:00 pm the last Thursday of the month in August, September, and October. The group will choose alternate dates for November and December around the holidays.

Creation Care Small Group (A Ministry of the Good Shepherd Creation Care Team)

Good Shepherd’s Creation Care Team and Creation Care Small Group are grounded by a biblical vision of God’s intention for the healing and wholeness of Creation. Our mission is to support the ELCA’s Caring for Creation: Vision, Hope, and Justice social statement. Creation Care encompasses six primary areas; discipleship, education, worship, community, advocacy and property.

Creation Care Small Group discussion around a book or other related theme is now a part of the agenda for every Creation Care Team meeting. The team meets every other Sunday morning @ 8:30 am in the Crook Cafe beginning August 1st.  We would love to have you join us.
