When people think of a church, they often think of a place or a building. When you visit Gloria Dei, we hope you will think of people. Gloria Dei is made up of people who have been forgiven and redeemed by Jesus. Our ministries provide opportunities to strengthen and grow your faith, while developing meaningful relationships. We want you to experience the acceptance, significance and purpose we believe that God has promised for our lives. We are a group of people committed to helping more people live life with Jesus every day, and we would love for you to join us this Sunday to experience it for yourself.
Join us this Sunday for worship at 8:30am, 11am, and 1:30pm (Español).
What to Expect
From the moment you walk in the building, you can expect a heartfelt greeting and opportunities to connect and grow as a disciple of Christ.
We offer 3 different service styles every Sunday at Gloria Dei, with an 8:30am and 11am service in the Worship Center, and an afternoon bilingual service in the Chapel (Spanish and English). Each service is Christ centered, Bible-based and is relevant and applicable to daily living.
This structured worship experience uses elements of the Divine Settings from the Lutheran Service Book (2006) and other expressions of traditional worship with organ, piano, and choir. Learn more.
This style of worship provides the opportunity for individuals and families from all backgrounds to praise and glorify God through a fresh, modern worship experience. Music ranges in style from modern praise and worship songs to contemporary hymn melodies and modern hymn settings. Learn more.

Gloria Dei is a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. As Lutheran Christians, we celebrate and live out three basic tenants of our salvation:
- Grace Alone: Our salvation is based on the free gift of God’s grace. Through His grace, God offers us a new start, and a new life in Him, in this present world and for eternity with Him in heaven.
- Faith Alone: God's gift of grace is received through faith in what Jesus has done for us. Jesus suffered and died, to purchase and win forgiveness and eternal life for each of us. Those who hear and believe this have the eternal life that it offers.
- Scripture Alone: The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
We encourage and welcome families to worship together on Sunday mornings as well as time to grow in their faith in environments designed around their ages and learning levels. We have dedicated time on Sunday mornings for devotion and obedience to God's Word with age-appropriate discipleship for kids, students and adults between services from 9:45-10:45am.
Communion is generally observed on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sundays of each month in addition to special liturgical days such as Christmas Eve, Holy Week, and Easter.
