Sunday Nights
1st & 3rd Sundays | 5-7pm

Students in 6th-12th Grade are invited to join us on the 1st and 3rd Sundays for Bible study, activities, and dinner. 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! One of those ways is by providing a meal. Our students love the chance to try something new, and a home cooked meal is the perfect way to enjoy each other's company!

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.
