BIBLE STUDIES

Bible studies and Community Groups at Shepherd of the Desert are smaller groups of people who gather together regularly to encounter God, grow in their relationship with God and each other, and live out the Gospel together.  Empowered by the Holy Spirit these groups pursue growth in identity, family, care, and mission.  It is in these smaller settings we find an even deeper sense of belonging and a safe place to go deeper in our faith together.

The list below indicates the current Bible Studies that are regularly available throughout the year.  In addition to these studies, we also have community groups that form over a shorter period of time (usually six to eight weeks) that dig into topic-specific curriculum.  We encourage you to find a Bible Study or Community Group, contact the leader, and get plugged in today.  If you are looking for a specific type of Bible Study or Community Group and you do not see it on our list below, please let us know so that we can explore the possibility of starting up and adding a new Bible Study or Community group to our list of offerings.  We are also constantly looking for new leaders to start new Bible Studies and Community Groups and if you are interested, please let us know by completing the form so that we can explore that possibility with you.
