Worship Times and Styles

Gloria Dei offers three worship services every weekend, in addition to special services during various church seasons. All of our regular services are liturgical services of Holy Communion. Children are welcome at all services, but especially the 10:30 AM services on Sunday, when there is a children's sermon.


Worship Times

Spoken Service - 5:00 pm

The service at 5:00 p.m. Saturday is a simple spoken service, using the liturgy of Evangelical Lutheran Worship without music.

Traditional Service - 9:00 am

The 9:00 am Sunday service is a more traditional Lutheran service, utilizing a variety of liturgical resources and weekly communion to help draw us closer to God. Choirs, soloists and other special music enhance worship. This service is ASL-interpreted for the hearing impaired.

Casual, come-as-you-are Service - 10:30 am

The 10:30 am Sunday service is a more casual Christian service with a unique Lutheran approach.  Contemporary praise ensembles lead the music.
