Proverbs 9:8 says, "Warn the wise and they will love you. Instruct the wise and they will become even wiser. Teach the righteous and they will learn even more." The message? We should never stop learning!
Our adult Sunday School classes are designed to promote fellowship, growth and maturity. We currently offer several adult classes, with topics changing quarterly. The current quarter runs from March through May:



Faithweaver Parent Connection: Faithweaver Parent Connection is a family focused class for families with children (ages 3 through Junior High). Through this study, parents will be exploring the same Bible passage as their children during Sunday School. Parents will not only learn the Biblical knowledge, they will learn how to bring the faith conversation home, and weave the Bible into their children’s lives.

Studies show that when families talk about faith, they grow in faith. This class will allow parents to learn with other parents how to bring the faith conversation home. This quarter’s study centers on Jesus’ life as well as the early church in the book of Acts.

"Faithweaver Parent Connection" meets in the Lower Level kitchen and is being facilitated by Mark and Jeannie DeAngelis.



The Church Awakening - An Urgent Call for Renewal: In this illuminating and empowering study, we will discuss the challenges, struggles and priorities of the church in the twenty-first century. This study issues a call for the church of Jesus to see how far we have drifted. This great erosion has erupted into destructive worship wars, devolved from enlightening to entertaining assemblies, replaced God’s nourishing Word with junk food, and sunk to new lows in cultural toleration. The church is asleep at the wheel, and it’s time to wake up!

We will expose the problems of -- and offer solutions for -- the entertainment-based, postmodern evangelical church and show how a return to biblical teaching will restore its strength and impact. The Church Awakening will ignite a revolution in the way we "do church" for years to come. Helping you to stand strong in a world that's lost its way.

"The Church Awakening" is being presented by the Growing Stronger class in the Sanctuary and is facilitated by Mike Mowen.


The People of God Set Priorities: This quarter will take us through the Old Testament books of Haggai and Zechariah, centering on the truth that our hope and confidence comes from God as we obey the Lord, trust God’s promises and live pure lives. In addition, we will study the book of First Corinthians and the premise of living as a community of believers; pursuing unity in Christ, glorifying God with our body, exercising freedom with caution, overcoming temptation and seeking the good of others.

From there, the course will move on to the book of Second Corinthians, studying what it means to bear one another’s burdens, centering on themes of providing comfort, forgiveness, reconciliation and generosity.

"The People of God Set Priorities" is presented by the Faith Builders class in the Lower Level and is facilitated by Dave Dressel, Joe Elliott and Bob Snurr.



Joy of Belonging: Interested in joining or finding out more about The Good Shepherd Ministries? This class will cover all the basics of how we operate at TGSM, “teaching people to know, love and serve Jesus Christ.” You will discover the foundations of the Christian faith, biblical principles surrounding church membership, and how you can serve the Lord through the ministries of TGSM.

If you are new to TGSM or interested in becoming a member we encourage you to take this class!

"Joy of Belonging" is a rotational class. The current session is being facilitated by Pastor Brad and Judy Moore.
