Our new semester for Christian Education at Gloria Dei has begun! Join us for one or all of the following offerings this school year!
Children’s Sunday School (9:15 am)
We have assembled a dedicated staff of gifted teachers to lead our children through the exciting and challenging truths of God’s Word. The children will learn of Jesus’ love for them as they study selected stories from the Old and New Testaments, memorize special verses of God’s Word, and learn new songs of praise. All children ages 3-10 are invited to join us each Sunday in the school classrooms at 9:15am!
Sunday Morning Adult
Bible Study (9:15 am)
Bible study furnishes us the opportunity to grow in faith as the Holy Spirit works through the Word we study. Throughout the year this hour will be dedicated to a variety of topics and courses meant to give you a well-rounded understanding of the Lord and his Word, with a special emphasis on how the Word of God applies to your life today and forever.
Our topic for this Semester: Testing the Spirits. We will compare what various Christian and non-Christian religious groups teach with the Bible to better understand the differences between each school of thought. All young adults and adults ages 11+ are welcome to join us at 9:15am in the Fellowship hall!
Monday Evening Bible Class (8 pm)
This Bible study is another opportunity to hear God’s Word and enjoy some fellowship with other members. Every Monday at 8pm you can call in from home or, beginning this year, meet in the Fellowship Hall at Church for this hour long study. The book of Revelation will be the focus of our study.
Catechism Class (Sundays at Noon)
Our three-year course for 6th-8th graders will be held after church each Sunday this year. While designed for our young adult to take up full, adult membership at Gloria Dei, all members are welcome and encouraged to sit in on this course to brush up on the basics of our faith.
Patient Parenting: A Course of Christian Encouragement for Parents
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and School will be hosting a three-session course that will allow parents to focus their attention where it needs to be—first on our Savior and then on our children—so that they can be the parents that God asks us to be as we raise our children "in the training and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). The three sessions of this course will be held on Saturdays October 11, October 25, and November 8, 2014 from 2:00-3:30pm each day. See Pastor for more details including cost and materials provided. A sign-up sheet is on the back table of the church, or register online by clicking here.
Bible Information Class (BIC)
This Bible study course combines study and discussion of God’s Word in a meaningful and inspiring presentation of the truths of the Bible. The class is designed for those who want to learn for the first time what the Bible teaches, as well as those who want a thorough review. Upon completion of this course, anyone who agrees with what is taught is welcome to join us for membership at Gloria Dei, though membership is certainly not required. If you have a friend who is curious to learn more about the Bible, invite them to a BIC while joining them in it. It will be a blessing for both of you!
BICs are held on an as-requested basis at a time and place that works best for the students enrolled. BIC is always free to all who are interested. To schedule a course, please contact Pastor Shrimpton.
