LIFE Groups: Live in Faith Everyday

L.I.F.E. Group is a new ministry here at Good Shepherd.  L.I.F.E. is an acronym for our mission statement, which is to, “live in faith everyday.”  We feel that L.I.F.E. Groups are so important for the body of Christ that it is our vision that everyone be involved with a L.I.F.E. Group.   

Life Groups are meeting now.  This is a great time to join a group or even start a new one.  If you are interested in joining a group or hosting one of your own please contact our L.I.F.E. Group Ministry Director...
