Growing In Faith Through God’s Word
There are plenty of opportunities for folks of all ages to learn God’s Word and apply God’s lessons at Cary’s Good Shepherd United Church of Christ.
In addition to our weekly worship service at 10:30 Sunday mornings, GSUCC offers a number of classes, study groups and special programs become more knowledgeable about scripture, Jesus’s teachings, and the many ways Spirit-led individuals can reflect their faith in modern-day life.
For well over a decade, GSUCC has had an Intergenerational Class in the High House building on Sunday mornings at 9am. Class is in session during the traditional school year, from September to early June. Participants from middle school through adults of all ages enjoy informal Bible study, conversation, reflection and fellowship.
Good Shepherd UCC also has a vibrant Sunday School program for children between age 3 and grade 5. By dividing our kids into three age-specific classes, children are able to begin to learn foundational Bible lessons in an environment and curriculum that is best suited for them. Our youngest Sunday Schoolers, age 3 through kindergarten enjoy a nurturing environment, complete with Bible stories, activities, crafts, stories and play time. Our Elementary School-aged students experience a wide range of learning styles and activities, such as art, music, science and drama, to bring Scripture and weekly lessons to life.
Our Young Adults Group hosts contemporary Bible study twice a month, our book club reads and discusses several Spiritual books each year, and Good Shepherd also conducts small group studies on a regular basis that can focus on specific topics or study texts. GSUCC also teams up with Covenant Christian Church each summer, to conduct Vacation Bible School for children from age 3 through fifth grade. In addition, Good Shepherd UCC’s Caring For Creation and Social Justice teams conduct educational programs throughout the year to share information and insights with church members and guests.
