When Jesus instituted Holy Baptism, he said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:20). So a disciple is made through a) baptism and b) instruction in the faith. Proclamation and Bible Study are at the very heart of the second part of that equation.
Good Shepherd has a number of Bible Studies running at various times. For a list of the current offerings, please see the church newsletter or bulletin. On Sunday mornings from 9:15 to 10:15 the largest of our Bible studies for adults takes place in what we call the “Youth Room.” It is taught primarily by Mr. Ron Wille, our Director of Christian Education, though Dr. Dan Paavola also teaches it about once a month.
