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.
Crisis Center Hand-Up Program
Gloria Dei Social Ministry is supporting the Crisis Center “Hand-Up” program to provide clients with support to purchase necessary tools or apparel for employment.
Through this program, when a Crisis Center client has an employment opportunity that required an up-front cost, the Hand-Up program is there to help with work uniforms or work boots, official identification or other requirements to start the job.
Health worker “scrubs”—$50
Securing identification —$20
To participate, click the DONATE NOW button above or place your contribution in the collection on Sunday's and indicate in the memo line: Hand-Up.
Over the next 12 months GDLC and community
ELCA churches will take part in shaping the ELCA’s social statement on:

Your input is essential to ensure the social statement addresses the issues we as ELCA members find most pressing. Discussion events will focus on four themes:
human trafficking, sexism, gender-based violence, and leadership
