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.  These groups pursue growth in identity, family, care, and mission.  It is in these smaller settings we journey deeper into our faith.

The list below indicates the Bible Studies that are currently available.  We encourage you to find a Bible Study, 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.
