LIFE GROUPS: LIVE IN FAITH EVERYDAY

L.I.F.E. Group is a 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 L.I.F.E. Groups are so important for the body of Christ that it is our vision 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 Zac Schwartz  zschwartz@fwgoodshepherd.org.

Life Groups on Sunday Morning

PRAYER WARRIORS

A group of “Prayer Warriors” will be meeting at Good Shepherd at 8:30 AM on Sunday mornings in Room 139 for 25 minutes of prayer. The group will meet until January 6th. The primary focus of the Prayer Group will be to pray for the Launch of the Modern Worship Service which happens on January 6th at 11:00 AM but all prayers on our hearts will be included. This time of prayer is open to all prayers even if inexperienced in prayer. 

Each week there will be a brief discussion on a different aspect of prayer and attendees will be encouraged to continue prayer during the week. There is no requirement other than to take part in an attitude of prayer during the meeting. Questions? Contact Judy Billings (260)341-9080
