Next Steps

Dear Gloria Dei,

Last weekend, and this coming week during worship, we have been digging into the book of Ruth. The book of Ruth is about how God is always working in and through Ruth and Naomi.  Just like God was always at work in their story and walking with them, God is also walking with us.  

There are a lot of unknowns right now for many of us, but what we do know, is that God is for us and is present in our lives. He is actively at work in this world. We know that the God who created and sustains this world and us, is always present, even when we can’t always see and feel Him.  

While Naomi and Ruth were uncertain of the future, they were still making plans for their next steps. Next steps for Gloria Dei will involve online or at home opportunities for larger groups, like confirmation and church school, during the month of September. Currently there are some small groups meeting in person and via Zoom. We are hopeful to be meeting in person beginning in October with even more small and large groups. Keeping in mind that our plans have been, and will continue to be, fluid to the current public health conditions.    

As we look forward to resuming in person programming starting in October, our next step plans include asking members to register and or sign-up for those groups they are interested in. Please visit our website or call the church, 605-371-3737; we enjoy catching up and helping you out. As we prepare to resume in person programming, one of the pressing needs we currently have is for CYF volunteers. Please see the links below if you would consider helping out with Children, Youth and Family ministries. Continue to check the church calendar and website. Please call the church office if you have any questions.

Just like Ruth and Naomi were in community and trusted in God, we will continue to support one another as a community and trust God together.  

God Bless, Pastor Sarah
