Bible Studies

Study the Word with other women who want to go deeper in their faith! Women's Bible Studies are held Wednesday mornings and evenings.

Our fall schedule offers two morning classes.  Both classes meet from 9-11am at Gloria Dei. The fall schedule runs from September 8 thru Dec 15th, 2021. The spring schedule will begin on Jan 12th.

  • LifeLight study on 1 & 2 Peter led by Kathie Stocker in LC 210/212.
  • Strength for Battle based on Ephesians led by Beth Hranicky in LC 216. (Note: this study will conclude in November. Beth will lead an Advent study for three weeks in December.)

Our Wednesday evening class meets from 6:30-8pm in LC 210/212. The Fall class will be based on a Priscilla Shirer study of Elijah, led by Dixie Russo.

Advent class led by Beth Hranicky meets from Dec 1st -15th in LC214/216.  Join us Wednesday mornings from 9-11am to take a deeper look at Jesus as Emmanuel, our Wonderful Counselor, the Everlasting Father, and the great I Am. When you know Jesus, you will realize Christmas is more than a nice story - the arrival of Jesus changes everything.

Can't meet on Wednesdays? Contact us for information on small groups or other ways to meet with like-minded Christians. Request more information.

Weekly Prayer

We invite women to join hearts and minds together in prayer for our church, schools, nation, leaders and many more needs! Whether we pray alone silently or out loud with a group we will be united in Spirit! The weekly prayer will be updated on Tuesdays. 

Heavenly Father, we pray that You bring joy and peace to our community this Christmas season

. As we celebrate with lights and food and presents, lead us all to the hope of salvation that only comes from You. As we think about a Baby in the manger, remind us of the Savior on the cross. Fill us with joy as we celebrate the good news for all the people. In the name of Jesus. Amen
