Serve Your Neighbor

Those who have been baptized are set apart to represent Christ and His engagement in this world. We embody His forgiveness and redemptive love, and struggle alongside the poor, oppressed, lonely, and outcast.

Gloria Dei believes that core to our identity is our faithful service to our neighbor, both locally and internationally.

We invite you to join us as we serve Christ by serving our neighbor.

Ministry Teams

In addition to our congregation Council, we have different teams that oversee the ministry of Gloria Dei.

Temeke Lutheran Church

In 1994, we entered into a companionship relationship with Temeke Lutheran Church in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.

These are organizations in (and some outside) our local community that we partner with to further God’s love in the world.
