Bible Study Opportunities

Along with our regular Sunday morning Bible Class, Good Shepherd has a few other opportunities for Bible study. Pastor Mehl leads a study on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am – 10:30 am in the church Fellowship Hall. Earl K. leads a class on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 am – 11:30 am in the Conference room of the church. There is a morning men’s Bible study that meets Tuesday mornings at 6:30 am. They currently meet at Sami’s restaurant in Joplin. There is also a Monday evening home study group that meets at Karen Perkin’s house at 6:30 pm. We would like to encourage people to get involved in one or more of these studies. It’s a great way to get connected to others in our church family while also learning about God’s word.

The Board of Christian Education wondered if there would be an interest in any other Bible study groups. What about a couples’ Bible study, a young adult group, a men’s morning Bible study in Carthage, etc. If you would be interested in any of these please contact Cindy E., or the church office 358-1325. It would be nice to get some new Bible study opportunities going at Good Shepherd to add to what is already being offered!

GSLC Friends

GSLC Friends is a small home Bible study group that meets once a week.  Our membership is diverse and you are welcome to join us.  We are currently studying “The Lutheran Difference”, a guide to how the Lutheran Church views a variety of subjects in today’s world.

We meet Monday night at the home of Karen P., gathering around 6:30 pm for a light dinner and/or snacks.  We begin our study around 7:00 pm.

Call Karen, or Gretchen O., for more information or on Messenger at GSLC Friends.


Men’s Bible Study

Good Shepherd would like to start a morning men’s bible study  that would meet one morning a week around 6:30 am (before work) at a breakfast location in Joplin.  If you would be interested in participating  in this bible study, please contact the church office, 358-1325, or Greg G.

Sunday Morning Adult Bible Study

The study of Ecclesiastes was concluded at the Sunday adult bible study this morning. A vote was conducted for the next study topic. Ephesians was selected. Under consideration were topical studies “Bible Time Line”, “Islam”, “LGBT”, “Luther”, and “Poverty and Christian Responses”.
