Bible Classes

Discipleship Hour

Sunday Mornings | 9:45-10:45am

In order to encourage and equip you to grow and live out your faith as a disciple in EVERY aspect of your life, we have dedicated time on Sunday mornings for devotion and obedience to God's Word with age-appropriate discipleship for all ages between services from 9:45-10:45am. A life of discipleship is about the journey along the way with those God has placed in our life, so that together, we grow as His loved, redeemed people in Jesus Christ. We’d love to have you join us on this journey of discipleship, and together we can continue Jesus’ Kingdom work in and through Gloria Dei!

Bible Stories for Adults | LC 214/216

Led by Kurt Rosenhagen. How long has it been since you studied the classic stories of the Bible? Have you ever looked at these stories from an adult perspective? Are you a new Christian and have never heard these stories? Bible Stories for Adults is your opportunity to become reacquainted with the Biblical characters and events that Christians have come to love. There is much we can learn about God as He reveals Himself through His-Story. The first year of the Bible Stories for Adults curriculum focuses on the stories of the Old Testament. Stories showing the faithfulness of Israel's Kings are studied during the third quarter of Year One. For more information email Kurt Rosenhagen.

A Study of David| LC 210/212

Led by Gary Himmler & Richard Zalesak. As the Messiah, Jesus was a descendant of King David and his ministry was pivotally impacted by the life of his great ancestor. Join us as we study the epoch of King David and how it helped shape the expectations and reality of Jesus' ministry. This class will also be available online to those who don't feel comfortable coming back on-campus.

The Teachings of Jesus | LC 215/217

Led by Keith Chuvala. What did Jesus teach about politics? How about money management, forgiveness, and faith? And what did He teach about Himself, the Bible, and the Kingdom of God? Join us as we read about His words on these and other topics through the Gospels and epistles of the New Testament. Each week we'll cover a single teaching, so feel free to join us any time! This class will also be available online to those who don't feel comfortable coming back on-campus.

Men's Bible Classes

The Apostle Paul | Tuesdays 6:45-8am | LC 214/216

Led by Ron Petri. Written to churches in Galatia founded by Paul during his missionary journey perhaps as early as A.D. 48-50 which would make this the earliest surviving letter of Paul. Key thought: "It is by grace through faith alone that people are justified and it is by faith alone that they are to live out their new life in the freedom of the Spirit." Martin Luther relied so strongly on this letter in all his preaching, teaching and writing against the prevailing theology of his day.

The Judaizers argued that Paul was not an authentic apostle and that out of a desire to make the message more appealing to Gentiles he had removed from the gospel certain legal requirements. Paul writes to counter the claims of legalistic Judaizers who were telling the Galatian believers that they must be circumcised and keep the law of Moses in order to be saved.

Email Ron Petri with questions.

This class will meet at Webster Presbyterian Church at 201 West Nasa Pkwy in Webster. We will have signs and friendly faces to help point you to the classroom!

This study will help women focus on the thoughts we tell ourselves and reveal areas where our thoughts do not align with the Word of God. We will:

  • Identify the negativity in our daily inner dialogue
  • Look to Scripture for wisdom and who we are in Christ
  • Internalize positive truths from God's Word

The summer session will be led by Renee Page utilizing a video series and a daily study guide for each participant. The study guide is $15.99 and can be purchased on your own or through Renee Page. Contact Renee for more information.

Walkin' Faith Group | Sundays 5:15pm | TBD

Walkin' Faith Group will be an active Bible study which includes listening to a study on headphones while walking or running the path at Clear Lake Park. The group, led by Renee Page, will then gather together in lawn chairs to discuss the study. Ladies will need comfortable shoes, headphones, phone, and a lawn chair. The first study was held in Jan/Feb. A new study will be formed in the fall.

Clear Lake Park is located at 5001 Nasa Pkwy, Seabrook, TX 77586. The park is well lit and has both water and restrooms. Ladies are welcome to walk as a group or as individuals depending on desired pace. The park has several paved sidewalk options  and the park is a large loop so women walking by themselves will still be part of the group. 

The study is free and open to all women.
