Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am

Executive Pastor/COO Search

Hello Gloria Dei,

I pray you all had a blessed Easter celebration. At Gloria Dei we had a very meaningful Holy Week, which began with the singing of “Hosanna” and the waving of palm branches. On Maundy Thursday we heard the command of Jesus to love one another and celebrated Holy Communion, with 90 of our young people receiving their First Communion. Good Friday was somber, with heartfelt, beautiful music from our choirs, and the hearing of Jesus’ seven last words. The week was capped off by five inspiring Easter worship celebrations, with more than 2000 people worshiping together in person and online. Thank you for your continuing participation and involvement in this Christ-centered ministry. God is good… All the time! Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!

I want to let you know that at our recent Church Council meeting, we made the decision to move forward in filling the Executive Pastor / COO position that was vacated by Pastor Stensgaard upon his retirement this past December.

Our Council President, Sara Dannen, and I will be sending an email letter to all members of the congregation within the next two weeks. In our letter we will provide more details regarding the search/call process.

The need for this position is evident, as Gloria Dei continues to have strong momentum and growth as we move into the future God has for us. Praise God! Please keep our Council in your prayers as we finalize our Search / Call Committee and begin to take the necessary steps to find the person God has in store.

In worship, we are reaching the end of our journey together through the gospel of John. For this weekend, please read all of John chapter 20. Our focus will be on verses 19-31.

Together in Christ,

Pastor Tim
