Sunday Worship and YouTube Services
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. A mask is not required, but is strongly recommended. We follow the liturgical settings in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal, and our guitar group leads us in worship monthly. Communion will be offered. These services can also be watched on YouTube. Check our Home Page out to find the link for this, as it changes weekly.
What We Believe
The Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) is a three-year cycle of readings. The Sunday texts show the breadth and variety of voices within Scripture, inviting people to hear the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the prophets, Jesus, and Paul. Listening to the many different voices within Scripture enriches preaching and the life of faith. (Excerpt from Working Preacher)
