September - November Opportunities


Sunday Opportunities

New Adult Bible Studies

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

Led by Kurt Rosenhagen and Rodger Carr. Begins September 10th (40-week class)

Dive in with both feet into the truth of God’s Word and His plan of salvation for each of us. This 40-week Bible Study will go through the Old Testament and New Testament, focusing on God’s truth and promises for His beloved and chosen people Through it all, we learn that in His love we are “blest to be a blessing”.


The Acts of the Apostles | 8am | Life Center 210

Led by Gary Himmler. Begins September 10th (20-week class)

The Book of Acts, above all else, is a story about the church…and what a story it is!

Beginning with a bang, or rather a “sound like the blowing of a violent wind” (Acts 2:2), Luke narrates how the church in Acts was dramatically born on the day of Pentecost (2:5-41).

Afterwards, he shares how an empowered band of Jesus’ disciples were suddenly thrust into a religious, political and social drama that would reverberate from the temple of Jerusalem to the capital of the Roman empire itself (1:8; 28:30-31)!


Ongoing Adult Bible Studies

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

Led by Keith Chuvala. Continues September 3rd – December

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!
