Beginning in January 2018, more than 500 churches in the Chicagoland area will be exploring some tough questions about God, the Bible, suffering, and related topics through a series of sermons and discussion groups.

Explore God is a unique effort to encourage people in the greater Chicago area to do just that: explore God. We all wonder, and we all have questions about God. Explore God is an opportunity to explore these big questions in an open and authentic way.

The participating ministries will explore some of the most common questions people have about God and faith — questions like, “Is there a God?” “Is the Bible Reliable?” and “Why does God allow pain and suffering?” This unified effort spans multiple denominations and is an open invitation for anyone to participate, regardless of their spiritual background.

Explore God Small Groups

We are forming new small groups in conjunction with this series. Joining a small group is a great way to get connected within the church, meet new people, and discuss your faith questions together.  Now is the time to indicate your interest in joining or leading a small group so that the groups are ready to begin Explore God in January.  For more information on joining a small group or becoming a leader, click here.

More details on getting involved here at Good Shepherd will be available soon. For now, check out for more information and resources!
