Children's Education at Gloria Dei

Gloria Dei Lutheran School

Time: Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 3:30pm
Location: Gloria Dei School Classrooms

To serve our member children more fully with instruction in God's Word, Gloria Dei has run a full-time elementary school since 1970 that gives our children a complete, Christ-centered education. In every moment of the day, Jesus' love and forgiveness is the forefront of all we teach in addition to preparing our children well for the schooling that lies in front of them after they graduate from Gloria Dei. Enrollment is open to both members and those who are not members of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. For more information, please visit the school's page.

Sunday School

Time: Sunday Mornings during the School Year, 9:15am to 10:15am
Location: Gloria Dei School Classrooms

Our Sunday School program is offered each Sunday Morning for children after 3-10. In the classes, the children learn Bible stories from both the Old and New Testaments that teach and reinforce the truths of God's love and forgiveness in Jesus, our Savior. Songs, games, and other activities appropriate to their age level seek to reinforce the lessons while having fun at the same time. Any parents who would like to send their children to Gloria Dei's Sunday School but might have some questions are invited to email our Church and School Secretary, Jen Ratto or Pastor Shrimpton. We hope to see you there!

Bible Day Camps

Location: Gloria Dei Lutheran Church Campus

Each Spring, Summer, and Winter we offer a Bible Day Camps program for the children of our congregation and community ages 3-10. Registration for our Spring Bible Camp opens in February each year, registration for Summer Bible Camp opens in March, and registration for Winter Bible Camp opens in November. For more information, please visit our Bible Day Camps page

Young Adult Catechism Class

Time: Wednesday evening, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: Gloria Dei Fellowship Hall and online via GoToMeeting

Catechism Classes serve the same basic purpose as our Bible Information Classes, though for our member children. Typically the class runs for three years, from 6th Grade through 8th Grade, during which time the children broaden their understanding and knowledge from of God's Word, maturing from Sunday School lessons to a deeper understanding of the doctrines of the Bible. After satisfactory completion of the course, the member children may then be received in adult membership of Gloria Dei.
