At Gloria Dei our worship style is blended, incorporating both contemporary Christian music and excellent traditional hymnody with key pieces of liturgy, such as confession, the creed, and the Lord’s Prayer. Our pastors’ messages are biblically based and are centered in God’s love for all people, shown most fully in Jesus Christ. They are always relevant, challenging, and enjoyable. God is active and vibrant in our lives, therefore our worship of God is active and vibrant as well.
Congregational Care and Health Ministry is about living well in Christ as we care for one another physically, spiritually, socially and emotionally. Gloria Dei offers many opportunities for growing in your own gifts as well as support, healing, prayer and service in Christ’s name.
Gloria Dei began as a mission start congregation, part of an intentional effort to reach into new and growing areas of the city of Sioux Falls with the good news of Jesus. Mission is in our DNA. In Scripture, we read the words of Jesus at the end of the Gospel of Matthew where Jesus says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” Jesus’ command begins with that simple little word, “GO.” At Gloria Dei, “Freed by Christ we Gather, Grow, Give, and GO all to the glory of God.” So, let’s GO Gloria Dei!
Gloria Dei Lutheran Preschool is a Christ-centered, part-day program offering children three through five years of age opportunities to grow and learn using developmentally appropriate activities in a loving, nurturing environment. The children will develop emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually in a Christian setting.
Council. Congregational Meetings. Building Use. Annual Reports. All of the nuts and bolts that hold Gloria Dei together and keep it running behind the scenes.
