The mission of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and Preschool is to reflect God’s hope! 
We experience God’s hope through celebration (worship), connection (to Jesus and one another), and compassion (service). Gloria Dei is about all those things. Everyone is welcome. Please join us!

SelahPause, Breathe, Love (The Psalms).
The word selah, which occurs in the Psalms, most likely refers to a musical interlude or pause. Summer is like a pause or needed rest. May the Holy Spirit cause us to pause, renew, worship and then empower us for loving service in Jesus’ name.
