Sunday Worship with Holy Communion 9:30 am
Staffed nursery provided for children 3 years of age and younger.
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is a friendly, inviting congregation, and we welcome you to worship with us.
Our sanctuary, dedicated in 1980, is a lovely, light-filled place of worship, a blend of traditional and modern. The stained-glass window, depicting the Good Shepherd, provides a beautiful backdrop to the altar. It was crafted in 1889, by a British artist for Trinity Episcopal Church in Howard, South Dakota, and was a gift to Gloria Dei, together with the hand-carved chancel furnishings, two smaller stained-glass windows, and the bell, which has called the faithful to worship for more than a century.
We worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30, celebrating Holy Communion weekly. We follow the liturgical settings in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal, and our guitar group leads us in worship monthly. During Advent and Lent, we worship on Wednesday evenings, using the liturgy of the Holden Evening Prayer service.
Our adult choir, musical and instrumental ensembles, and soloists provide special music throughout the year. The adult choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings during the school year and welcomes everyone who loves to sing.
Children are always welcome in worship, we also provide a staffed nursery for infants and children ages 3 and younger during worship services.
