WELCOME TO GLORIA DEI

Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, a city-wide and globally-connected parish committed to ministry in the Hillside neighborhood of Duluth, MN. Gloria Dei is a member of the Northeastern MN Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Gloria Dei is one of the oldest Lutheran churches in Duluth and the region, but it sees God’s redeeming love active in the world today and embraces a vision for God’s mission that gathers together people wonderfully diverse in age, race, ability, background, and experience. Gloria Dei is also a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Church, meaning that we welcome and strive to incorporate all persons, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, into full participation in the church. We welcome you to join us for worship or one of our many special community or ministry events.

SANTLUCIA—DEC 8 After worship join us downstairs during coffee hour for the telling of Santa Lucia by Ebba Brooks.  All children are invited to participate too, with costumes, singing, and distributing treats.  Though little is known about her, she is remembered as someone who devoted her life to God and her possessions to the poor.  Her celebration became particularly important in Sweden and Norway, perhaps because the feast of Lucia (the name means “light”) originally fell on the shortest day of the year.  A tradition arose of a girl in the household, wearing a crown of candles, bringing saffron rolls to her family early in the morning on the day of Lucia.  
 
CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PROGRAM DEC 15 – The Sunday School again recreates the nativity story during the worship hour on December 15.  Please note: there will also be a rehearsal for the Christmas Program on Saturday morning, December 14, at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.  Many thanks to Steve & Sherry Dalager for coordinating this special service again this year—all children are invited to participate!
Blues Service - August 10
Let the spirit move you at our annual Blues Service on August 10th at 10:00 a.m. - the weekend of the Bayfront Blues Fest. Join us for a mixture of new music and old favorites for a worship service that will move body and soul.
