High School

High School (9th-12th Grade)

Sunday Mornings | 9:45-10:45am | Student Center

Student Ministry at Gloria Dei seeks to bring joy, empowerment, and encouragement to students so they can be sent as Kingdom missionaries into their schools.

High School Students

High school students meet in the Student Center Chat Room to grow deeper in their walk with Jesus on Sunday mornings. 

High School Parents

While students are meeting with their peers and small group leaders, we have a group of parents that meet in the Life Center by Dei Break Cafe to study God's word and share about struggles and successes of parenting.

SNL-Sunday Night Live

Students in 9th-12th Grade are invited to join us for Bible study, activities, and dinner, Sundays from 5-7pm in the Chat Room. This is a great opportunity to meet up with your friends, serve in fun ways, and dive into conversations about what God says about different topics. Parents and leaders, we would love to have you serve on a Sunday night!

4th Sundays Off-site

High School students are invited to an off-site event each month for devotion, dinner and games. These are the perfect nights to invite a friend and join us for some awesome fun! Check out the schedule below of every offsite event for the semester. More details and registrations will be added to each event as we get closer to them. All events are from 5-7pm and are at the locations noted unless otherwise stated.

Phase Podcast

Did you know Gloria Dei has a summer podcast? Each week we will be taking a look at the phases, or grades, of our kids. In each conversation we will highlight the changes in their development emotionally, mentally, physically and socially as well as share some stories from parents who just finished that grade with their child.

We hope that you are encouraged, supported, and informed as you enter the next phase in your child's life. We also hope that through this podcast you see that you aren't alone and maybe pick up some tips and tricks from other parents. This parenting journey is rewarding and sometimes hard, but it is never meant to be done alone.
