Also, the congregation has received a heartfelt Thank You from Pastor Dwight upon his retirement. I’ve included it here:

Dear Gloria Dei,
        A blessed Advent and Christmas to all! Thank you for the kindness of the retirement gift that you shared with me and my family on my last weekend of worship with you. I will indeed enjoy Sioux Falls golf and think of you and give thanks for you whenever I play a round. And thank you for the gift card to Scheels, we appreciate it very much. Once again, thank you, thank you, thank you, many thanks, a thousand thanks for the honor and privilege to serve with you in the mission and ministry of Gloria Dei. I will be forever grateful!
God’s Blessings Always,
Pastor Dwight Stensgaard


We are grateful to God for Pastor Dwight and his ministry among us.

For worship this weekend please read Luke 1:68-79 and Luke 3:1-6.

See you in worship,
Pastor Tim
