 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them. — Matthew 18:20

Good Shepherd provides a vareity of adult faith formation and fellowship opportunities because we know that the road to becoming a disciple of Jesus is a life-long pursuit.  Whether it is a walk in the woods, monthly book club, or pilgrimage in Spain, you can expect to find something to help you connect with God and others at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.

Good Shepherd Film Discussion Series

The Good Shepherd Film Discussion Series is for folks interested in watching a good movie and learning a thing or two in the process.  The group meets in the Fellowship Hall at Good Shepherd once per month on Saturdays at 6:15 pm (either the 2nd or 3rd Saturday of the month - see the schedule below for details).  Films are generally rated PG-13, although the occasional R-rated film will be shown provided the content and subject matter are appropriate to an adult church discussion group.

This year's film series theme is "Do the Right Thing (The Choices We Make)".  Doug McConnell, event organizer, provides a description of the types of movies we'll be watching this year: "Decisions, decisions, decisions…..we make so many in the course of a day! Some decisions seem rather minor in importance, but others are far more significant. At times, these decisions will affect the lives and well-being of others. Our new Good Shepherd film discussion series will examine this issue as it relates to our Christian faith. Sometimes, the issue at hand will involve clear social and moral issues. At other times, the struggle may be more personal in nature. How does one go about doing the “right thing,” even if this path is sometimes fraught with conflict, stress, or even danger? "

Some snacks are provided at each session and folks are invited to bring their dinner or other snacks to enjoy.  The sessions are open to both member and non-members, so bring a film-loving friend!
