Student Ministry at Gloria Dei seeks to help students in grades 6-12 
grow in their faith, share their faith, and live out their faith
as disciples of Jesus.

Sunday Mornings

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

Each one of our Sunday morning opportunities is setup in a large group/small group format. Students hear God's Word in large group and then - through questions, activities, and object lessons - learn how to apply it to their own lives. Check out the weekly classes below and find what's available for your age! During this time we are doing out best to offer opportunities online and in person. Check out the individual class listings to see what online and in person looks like for each class!

6th Grade BIBLE STUDY | Student Center 194/196

Students are invited to join us for Bible study as they walk through the life of Jesus throughout the year in experiential ways!

7th and 8th Grade CONFIRMATION | Student Center 292/294

Students are invited to join us for Confirmation classes throughout the year for a unique learning experience! Both 7th & 8th Grade students will explore different aspects of the Catechism and our Lutheran faith together. Parents are highly encouraged to attend a special parent class while their children are in their own lessons.

PARENT CONFIRMATION CLASS | Student Center 296/298

Parents are invited to join us for a class designed just for them that helps them grow in their faith while also growing as the primary faith-formers for their student.


High school students are invited to join us as we grow deeper in our walk with Jesus! While we go through various series throughout the year, each week we have specific challenges and next steps that can help us all grow in our lives as disciples. We are starting out the year with a renewed theme in Sunday morning – Pursuit. We will be taking time each morning to talk about how God pursues us and how we, in turn, are called to respond in pursuit of a relationship with Christ. We will meet in the Chat Room.
