Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am
As a family, we recognize meaningful and memorable moments in our faith journeys, sometimes based on a child's age/grade, and sometimes as major events happen in a child's life. We take time to think about how God fits in the big moments of our lives.
