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!

Sermon Series Study | Chapel

Join us every Sunday in the Chapel, as we engage in God's Word together using the current sermon series themes and Scripture readings. Led by the pastoral staff of Gloria Dei, this Bible study will be an opportunity to unpack even more application of the sermons in our daily lives of discipleship. This class will also be available online to those who don't feel comfortable coming back on-campus. Click the link below to join us on our online streaming site.

Men's Bible Classes

Tuesdays 6:45-8am | LC 214 & 216

Beginning September 26th we will begin a thirteen week study in Acts. 

The theme of Acts is the spread of the Gospel to all the known world (1:8). Luke records the growth of the church in Jerusalem and Judea, Galilee and Samaria, Antioch, which became a missionary to the Gentile world, Asia, Europe and Rome. Luke centers in on Paul. Acts provides essential background information about the churches Paul founded and to whom he wrote his epistles.

Understanding the book of Revelation, written in apocalyptic literature style, history is seen as a cosmic battleground in which the forces of good and evil contend for final control of the earth and its inhabitants.  Satan and his hosts seem to gain the upper hand.  However, Victory belongs to God and His hosts, as the forces of evil, which have been overcome by Christ on the cross, are ultimately destroyed.  The real purpose of the book of Revelation is to give comfort to Christians at all times.  When God’s people fear that the world is raging out of control, they see here that God is always in control of history. Come join us as we hear the “The Triumphant Christ“  speak to His church through all the chapters of Revelation to the final chapter of “Our Victorious Lord Reigns Forever”.  LifeLight: Revelation Study Guide cost $10. Room 210/212, Led by Kathie Stocker

Teachings John’s Gospel & Epistles

In John, the importance of Jesus’ identity is not merely theoretical; it has drastic, real-life consequences. Jesus of Nazareth was a historical figure who was born, died, and rose again. He is also the eternal Son who created us, saved us, and gave us the right to become God’s children. When we get Jesus’ identity wrong, we miss out on the salvation He offers. If we get it right, though, everything else in our lives becomes rightly ordered.

And the apostle John’s letters to the Christians of the ancient world tackles issues of false teaching, sin, and atoning work in Jesus Christ. The epistles of John proclaims the good news of the Lord to which John testified. He reminds us that as we face the temptations of false teaching in our day, we need to be ready to test everything against the Scriptures and to examine ourselves.    Bible: 1, 2, 3 John. No cost. Room 214, Led by Mary Fricke

 A Study in 1 and 2 Samuel

What does the history of Israel’s kings have to do with the Christian life today? You might be surprised! The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Samuel trace the development of Israel’s monarchy from its establishment under the prophet Samuel through the reigns of the nation’s first kings, Saul and David.  In this study, using three leading teachers, guiding us:  Study book by Kay Gabrysch (22-year WBS leader) , Video with Michael DeFazio (New Testament & Hermeneutics Professor at Ozark Christian College) and we will hear also from Alistair Begg who walks us through books of 1 and 2 Samuel. 1 & 2 Samuel, Rise of the Lord’s Anointed - $5. Room 216, Led by Beth Hranicky
