Worship Times and Styles

Gloria Dei offers three worship services every summer weekend, in addition to special services during various church seasons. All of our regular services are liturgical services of Holy Communion. Children are welcome at all services, but especially the 10:30 AM services on Sunday, when there is a children's sermon.


Summer Worship Times, beginning May 26-27

Spoken Service - 5:00 pm

The service at 5:00 p.m. Saturday is a simple spoken service, using the liturgy of Evangelical Lutheran Worship without music.

Traditional Service - 9:00 am

The 9:00 am Sunday service is a more traditional Lutheran service, utilizing a variety of liturgical resources and weekly communion to help draw us closer to God. Summer Choirs, soloists and other special music enhance worship. This service is ASL-interpreted for the hearing impaired.

Casual, come-as-you-are Service - 10:30 am

The 10:30 am Sunday service in the summer will be casual and will explore a variety of worship styles from blended to contemporary.


All our services include a focus on the Word of God, preaching, and Holy Communion.
