This Sunday, October 17, we’ll hear more about the ways Jesus turns our usual hierarchies upside down, calling us to be servants more than status-cravers. Join us for worship, in person or via livestream, at 10:00 this Sunday on our YouTube page: https://youtu.be/67gN4pG2m9M
Pause and Pray – join us for prayer and reflection on Wednesdays at 7pm on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/gloriadeichatham

The Learning Path Preschool
|The Learning Path preschool is a not-for-profit school housed in the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. Please visit their website for more information.|
Our Faithful Innovation Guiding Team has talked about how important our relationships with each other are as a church family – and how it’s often difficult to learn people’s stories, even when we’re not navigating a pandemic. We’re starting a series in which people will share where they came from and how they found their way to Gloria Dei. The members of our Guiding Team are sharing their stories first, and they’ll be inviting you to do the same. Let’s celebrate both the unique facets of our individual journeys and the intersections that we will discover among them.

Dear Gloria Dei Family,
The building is closed for now, but our hearts are open, and we can still gather for worship! We’ll do a simple worship service online this Sunday starting at 10:00. If you’re on Facebook, all you have to do is find your way to Gloria Dei’s Facebook page at that time on Sunday and click on the Facebook live video (see link below). I’ll be broadcasting from my house, but I promise that I’ll still shower.
You can also join us even if you do not have a Facebook account. Click on the link below. As you begin to scroll on our Gloria Dei page, it will prompt you either to “log in” or to “create new account.” But if you look closely, there will also be a “Not Now” option in small letters. Click on “Not Now,” and you should be able to view our posts, including the live worship video. You might also have a friend or relative who can give you access through their Facebook page if that’s easier.
Here’s the link to our page:
I hope you’ll join us as we experiment with this way to gather as the body of Christ in unusual circumstances. We’re all learning together how to be creative and flexible. Thank you for your patience and participation as we try new things!
Wishing you peace and holding you in prayer,
Join the fun this summer as we experience the ride of a lifetime with God!
