New Adult Bible Studies

Act Like Men | 9:30am | LC 211/213

Led by Pastor Brian Weaver.  June 10th - July 8th


God has created men to have incredible strength.  But today's culture has hijacked masculinity, distorting strength into passivity and abuse.

In this 5-part video Bible study series from RightNow Media, Pastor Joby Martin invites men to embrace God's definition of masculinity and to step into His calling upon their lives to wield their strength on behalf of others.  God has designed men to be protectors, providers, and defenders.  When men act like men, everyone flourishes.


Explaining All The Scary Stuff in Revelation | 9:30am | Chapel

Led by Dustin Gooding.  June 3rd - June 24th

Messengers risked their lives carrying this heavily encoded message throughout enemy territory.  Learn how to understand the last book of the Bible in "Explaining All The Scary Stuff in Revelation", featuring The Lutheran Hour speaker, Rev. Ken Klaus.

Bethel Bible Series | 8:00, 9:30 & 11:00am | Life Center 214/216

Led by Kurt Rosenhagen and Rodger Carr.

Dive in with both feet into the truth of God’s Word and His plan of salvation for each of us.

“What Lutherans Believe” | 11:00am | Life Center 215/217

Led by Keith Chuvala. Continues January 7th - February 4th & April 8th - June 24th

What does it mean to be a "Lutheran" Christian? What sets Lutherans apart from Roman Catholics, Baptists, Episcopalians, and all those other Christian denominations? In this class we look at the fundamentals of Lutheran/Christian theology and its basis in the Bible, plus we cover topics picked by members of the class! If you're wondering about elements of our worship here at Gloria Dei, want to know where the LC-MS stands on a hot-button issue, or have questions that require a deeper answer than you can typically get from a Sunday sermon, this class is for you. It is an interactive, discussion-based study, and is open to all. You can jump in and join the discussion if you like, or just sit back, enjoy, and absorb the conversation. The topic usually changes every 1 to 3 weeks. Come and join us at any time!


Genesis | 8am | LC 210

Led by Gary Himmler.

Genesis is a name taken from the Greek, and signifies "the book of generation or production."  It contains an account of the origin of all things.  There's no other history so old.  There's nothing in the most ancient books, which exists that contradict it.  Many things recorded by the oldest heathen writers, or traced in the customs of different nations, confirm the book of Genesis.

In this study, we will see the Triune God at work in creation and then working through His people as His plan of Salvation for all begins to unfold.


Mid-Week Bible Studies


Book of Romans  |  Tuesday's 6:45-8:00 am  |  Life Center Room 216

Led by Ron Petri. January 2nd - August 7th

There are a great many reasons why this particular book is perhaps the most crucial in the entire Bible for the Christian to understand the doctrines of the Faith. Nowhere else in Scripture is so direct and precise of presentation given concerning the great truths of the Gospel. In this study we will walk through the explanation of the Gospel.

"7 Lessons from Heaven" | Wednesday's 9:30 am | LC 210

Led by Mary Fricke

In this inspired follow-up to her million-copy bestseller, To Heaven and Back, Dr. Mary Neal shares untold stories about her encounters with Jesus and powerful insights about how the reality of heaven can make each day magnificent. 

Dr. Mary Neal's unforgettable account of a 1999 kayaking accident that took her life, and what happened next, has riveted more than a million readers.  But something happened as she shared her story in the years since.  Not only did Neal realize she had more to tell, she discovered she had yet to answer the biggest question of all: How does knowing heaven is real change our lives on Earth?
