New Sunday Studies

MAKING SPACE: DOING WHAT MATTERS MOST | 9:30 & 11AM | LIFE CENTER 210/212
(beginning January 13th)

Led by Pastor Brian Weaver. Do you know what's most important in your life? Do you feel too busy to make time for those things? This Bible study will help you identify what matters to God and to you as a follower of Christ, and will help you incorporate these into your busy life. Gleaning wisdom from the Book of Proverbs and the example of Jesus, this study will help you avoid empty, unfulfilling busyness and devote your time to the pursuits that matter most in life.

5 Love languages | 9:30 | Life Center 211/213
(beginning February 10th)

Led by Kat Sievert. We will be exploring the 5 love languages that people have and how those impact our closest relationships.  Do you know your love language? What about those closest to you?  We will also be looking at how God shows His love to us through the 5 love languages.

 

Ongoing Sunday Studies

What Lutherans Believe | 11Am | Life Center 214/216

Led by Keith Chuvala. What does it mean to be a "Lutheran" Christian? What sets Lutherans apart from Roman Catholics, Baptists, Episcopalians, and all those other Christian denominations? In this class we look at the fundamentals of Lutheran/Christian theology and its basis in the Bible, plus we cover topics picked by members of the class! If you're wondering about elements of our worship here at Gloria Dei, want to know where the LC-MS stands on a hot-button issue, or have questions that require a deeper answer than you can typically get from a Sunday sermon, this class is for you. It is an interactive, discussion-based study, and is open to all. You can jump in and join the discussion if you like, or just sit back, enjoy, and absorb the conversation. The topic usually changes every 1 to 3 weeks. Come and join us at any time!

bible stories for adults | 9:30am | life center 214/216

 Led by Kurt Rosenhagen. 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 Gospel of John | 8am | Life Center 210

Led by Gary Himmler. The "Disciple Whom Jesus Loved" reveals Jesus much more intimately than any other writer.  John pulls back the curtain to share Jesus' private, powerful prayer to His Father for us, His disciples.  He tells us that Jesus is the Light who came into the world.  He records Jesus' deep teachings about the indwelling Holy Spirit.  He reveals most fully Jesus' tender love for the little flock who respond to His call to follow Him.  He gives us even the innermost thoughts and emotions of the Lord. In this study, we will grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ by receiving the grace that He gives us through the gospel.

 

Mid-Week Men's Studies

Book of proverbs  |  Tuesdays | 6:45-8am  |  Life Center 214/216

Led by Ron Petri. We will study the entire book of Proverbs. Proverbs describes the importance of living wisely and in the fear of the Lord as opposed to following the seductive path of folly. Questions about Tuesday Morning Men's Bible Study, contact Ron Petri at 281-733-9460.
