Sunday Worship and ZOOM 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 suggested but not a requirement. 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 viewed on ZOOM. The connection information is listed below.
What We Believe
Here at Gloria Dei, we follow Luther Seminary’s Narrative Lectionary.
“The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. On the Sundays from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church.
The texts show the breadth and variety of voices within Scripture. They invite 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)
Ongoing Bible and Book Study Groups
Please feel free to come and join us at Gloria Dei Lutheran each Sunday morning at 9:30am for services. While masks are not required, we do suggest that you wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated. If you are not comfortable with this, please feel free to join us in our ZOOM Services.
