Our keynote (Mike Novotny, lead speaker for Time of Grace) and two presenters will remind us that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ (Romans 8:35) which also binds us to one another.

“God and Me” Class

Philipians-Living in the Joy of Christ

Women’s Bible Study-Hosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church

Chained to a Roman guard and facing a possible death sentence, Paul wrote a letter filled with joy. How could Paul remain so joyful in such suffering? We want to know because we long to live in joy like Paul—overflowing with grace, love, and a passion for souls. We want our joy to remain melded with Christ, uninhibited by hardships or suffering. Paul teaches us about joy, unity, humility and contentedness. His friends teach us about partnership in ministry and love for the Gospel. But most of all, Philippians teaches us about Christ—because although our struggles have changed our need for grace is timeless.

Naomi Schmidt, author of Philipians-Living in the Joy of Christ, will be leading us through her book. Good Shepherd invites you to join us for this 9-week study, that will meet every other Tuesday. We will have our first session on Tuesday, May 4th at 6:30 p.m. For those that would be more comfortable joining us via Zoom please email Naomi Ruh, nkrumbein@gmail.com, for the Zoom meeting link. 

You may purchase Naomi’s book on Tuesday, May 4th, or they are available at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church or Redeemer Lutheran Church. The cost of the book is $15, and you can sign up here.

We look forward to diving into God’s word with you!
