WORSHIP THIS WEEK: This Sunday, December 11, we celebrate the Third Sunday of Advent.  This week we turn to Mary’s story – the stunning word she receives from the angel Gabriel and the powerful way that she responds.  Join us for worship, either in person or via livestream here: https://youtu.be/Z-YSB5FJy9s

ADVENT MIDWEEK WORSHIP: Our Advent midweek worship continues on Thursday, December 15 from 7:00-7:30pm with a beautiful service that uses Holden Evening Prayer to nourish our weary souls. Together we’ll ponder the mysteries of the season and root ourselves in the hope, love, peace, and joy represented by the Advent candles. Thursday, December 22, we will have a Service of Comfort and Hope to help us carry the grief that we often experience at this time of year.

“I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.”
– Martin Luther  

 

As we walk in faith, the people of Gloria Dei consider how God is calling us to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in this congregation and in the broader community. We know that God’s love does not depend on what we believe or how we behave, but we soon discover that a life of discipleship leads us to worship, pray, read the Bible, serve others, and share our resources, not because we have to do these things, but because we want to do them. We can’t help ourselves.

  • We share our time, talent, and treasure to bear witness to the love of Christ in our lives.
  • We share our financial gifts to support diverse mission efforts at the state, national and global levels.
  • We support the ministries of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, including Lutheran Disaster Response and Lutheran World Hunger.
  • We are grateful for the work of our local fire and emergency response personnel, which we support along with other local organizations: Chatham Senior Center, Chatham Senior Bus Service, Morris County Interfaith Food Pantry, Literacy Volunteers of Morris County, and others.

We pray that God will help us
always to use our gifts wisely
and share our resources generously.
