Deily Work Details

When the Gloria Dei - Sioux Falls Mobile Hair Salon is out in the community, you can know that we are living out our 3 values: Dignity. Image. Grace. Every human being deserves to feel the dignity that comes from getting a fresh wash and cut. Every human being is made in God’s image. Every human being longs to know the grace of God. It’s an absolute JOY to serve alongside all of you and I am so thankful for our volunteers and volunteer stylists who make this happen every other week!! Send me a message if you want to get involved. Share this post with your stylist and tell them to get in touch with us at Gloria Dei. We’re having a BLAST with this ministry!
Let’s GO, Gloria Dei!

LEAD Young Adult Small Group:
  • HOME GROUPS - First and foremost, we are devoted to gathering together at our weekend services to hear God’s message, to engage in worship and to give. We are then equally devoted to gathering in homes and talking about how to apply the message we just heard into our lives … and to do it surrounded by friends who are also pursuing God.
  • INTEREST GROUPS - We are designed for relationships. But a meaningful community is not always easy to find. Interest Group creates space for us to find friends and experience God through the things that interest you! Whether it’s a book on How To, running, rock climbing, or novel reading - find a group that works for you!
  • ONLINE GROUPS - We want you to be connected to the church body regardless of whether you’re able to meet in person or not. Check out one of our online groups to connect with people both locally and around the USA.
