Our Center

Gloria Dei’s life is is centered in Word and Sacrament in worship. 

Baptism is a tangible sign of God's grace in our lives. Through the water and word of this sacrament, God welcomes each person into the community of faith, makes us all brothers and sisters in Christ, and promises us God's daily and everlasting forgiveness and healing love. Baptism is for children. Baptism is for adults. Baptism is done only once and lasts all of our life. 







Holy Communion is celebrated at each Sunday worship service. We believe that Christ is present in communion. We don’t know how. Our founders said Christ was “in, with and under” the bread and wine, but that doesn’t really clear it up so we celebrate mystery! What we do know is that at the communion table, God nourishes faith, forgives sin, and calls us to be witnesses to the Gospel. All who wish to receive the body and blood are welcome. Children of any age are welcome when parents decide it is time. Children or adults not receiving communion are invited forward to receive a blessing if they desire. 


The Bible is our sacred story. We believe that people meet God in Scripture. God’s relationship to, and intention for humankind is revealed in the story of faith. The Bible creates and nurtures faith through the work of the Holy Spirit and points us to Jesus Christ, the living Word and center of our faith. In reading the Bible, we are invited into a relationship with God that both challenges us and promises new life. 

Gloria Dei Lutheran Church welcomes all persons to join us in sharing God's grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
