Upcoming events

 

Celebrate Our Helping Hands!

Sunday, October 5


On Sunday, October 5 we will be celebrating all of the volunteers who do the ministry of Gloria Dei!  Also, learn how Gloria Dei is living out its Mission on Market!   Members from the Council and other volunteers will be on hand in the lounge between services to share what they are currently doing and their goals for the future. Come share your ideas and see all that is happening at Gloria Dei!

 

 


Cottage Meetings Begin on Monday, October 6

 The Gloria Dei Congregation Council is inviting members to participate in a

“Cottage Meeting”  to gather input from all members about our shared hopes and dreams for the future mission and ministry of Gloria Dei, so that we can determine together what our three top priorities should be for 2015.

 

 

These meetings will happen throughout October and into early November.  You should have received an invitation to a meeting on a particular day.  However, if you are not able to attend the day you have been invited to there are alternate days. 

 

     Each Cottage Meeting will last no more than 90 minutes and will include a devotion, a  brief summary of ideas that have emerged from previous visioning exercises, and a report from the Building Assessment Task Force.  Participants will then be invited into a brainstorming session to imagine what our future might look like and what our            immediate priorities should be.  The meeting will conclude with conversation around our Stewardship of resources and passing out the 2015 Pledge Cards and Time & Talent Sheets. 

 

Please come and join us in this time of re-imagining where our loving God is leading us in the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ.
