Welcome to Gloria Dei


MEMBERSHIP IN A CONGREGATION

Membership in an ELCA congregation begins with baptism where, as infants or adults, we are adopted as children of God.  If a baptized person desires membership in the Gloria Dei faith community, we also begins with baptism through the Affirmation of Baptism where we once again hear God’s promises to us, profess our faith, and renew our promises to God to:

live among God’s faithful people;

hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper;

proclaim Christ  through word and deed;

care for others and the world God made; and

work for justice and peace in the world.

By these promises we commit to being regularly and actively involved in the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ as his disciple, learning to bear witness to Christ in the world. To be a member of Gloria Dei means:

Gathering in Christ

Sharing His Love

There are many opportunities for ministry at Gloria Dei to choose according to your gifts:

WORSHIP

FAITH FORMATION

FELLOWSHIP

SOCIAL MINISTRY

PROPERTY

EVANGELISM

Your sponsor will provide more information about these ministry opportunities and assist you in choosing where God is calling you to serve.

As your sisters and brothers in the body of Christ, we rejoice with you and we welcome you as members of this congregation as together we gather in Christ to share his love; giving praise to God and bearing God’s creative and redeeming Word to all the world!
