Our Core Values

Worship

We gather weekly for worship in the name of our Triune God. We are a Liturgical congregation that is grounded in Word and sacrament. Worship shines light on our personal darkness setting us free to serve in our community, our world and in our church.

Prayer

We pray for the church, the world and all those according to their needs in worship, in our prayer chain and through small group ministries.

Learning

We believe that learning leads to mission. Reading and hearing the witness of the scriptures evokes the Holy Spirit to awaken and create faith and bring light and life to the people. We teach Bible stories in our Sunday School classes with an emphasis on God's grace. Learning is a lifelong endeavor.

Service

We are called into ministry and service using our unique spiritual gifts. God's passion for the least of these... the poor, the hungry, the lonely, the grieving and the sick, becomes our passion.

Lutheran Identity

We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, on account of Christ alone. We are who we are because of God's grace - that is, God's love for us. Our works are a grateful response to God's love for us.

Fellowship

We seek opportunities to gather together in large and small groups for work, play, study and eating.

Hospitality

We welcome the stranger and strive to practice Jesus' acts of radical hospitality and open table fellowship. We share our building with the community. We welcome diversity.

Internship

Since 2009, Gloria Dei has been an internship site for ELCA seminarians from Wartburg Theological Seminary. Each intern spends one year practicing the arts of ministry -- preaching, teaching, counseling, etc. -- in our church and community. While exploring and learning in this parish, every intern enriches our community immensely.

Music

We are a liturgical congregation that loves to sing. We have a strong choral music program.

Ecumenism

We strive for ecumenical relationships and opportunities to gather together with our brothers and sisters in Christ from other traditions.
