Who are we?
Founded in 1855, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church welcomes all persons to join us in sharing God's grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. Our community of faith is centered in Word and Sacrament in worship. Shaped by the grace of God, Gloria Dei’s mission on Market is to be the community of Christ for all people.
A Day of Service—Sept. 7
“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. On Sunday, Sept. 7, 2014, the nearly 10,000 congregations of this church gather to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people
At Gloria Dei, September 7 will include:
At 9:15 we will offer these opportunities to serve:
o Buying/Eating Pie at Social Ministry’s sale, proceeds of which will go to the Common Fund to benefit the Crisis Center.
o Learning about our school backpack weekend meals program.
o Collecting items for DVIP, Ronal McDonald House, The Veterans Hospital, and the Food Bank (get a list of needed items on the high table in the narthex).
o Sunday School Rally day will feature designing cards for sending to the homebound and dog biscuits for the local shelter.
From 1:30 to 3:30 members of Gloria Dei, Lutheran Campus Ministry, Christ the King, and Zion will work together on two group projects 1) sprucing up and clean up at the Domestic Violence Program and 2) mulching and weeding at the new Trueblood Recreation Area (bring work gloves and your own water bottle; also needed: weeding tools, shovels, and some wheelbarrows)
Also in the afternoon, Gloria Dei members will provide both the noon and evening meals and clean the Ronald McDonald house.
