We are committed to the formation of our leaders among the Latino community. For that reason we have created the Academic of Theology for Lay. We teach every Wednesdays at 7pm and Saturdays at 11am right here at Gloria Dei. If you are interested in this program in English it is available at the Synod. Don’t miss this opportunity, talk to the pastor!
Women (some men too) at Gloria Dei regularly come together to practice hospitality and to share a time of listening and prayer. Every Thursday at 7 pm.
And what about our Youth Ministry and our ministry with our community through the Step Up Center. So welcome back and get involved!
The church is like the human body, with each part playing a critical role in the functioning of the body. You have been given gifts and a key role to play in this church. Every member of this body, working together in unity, in the local area, is called to build the Kingdom of God in the hearts of men and women. Our gifts used together will build up the body of Christ. We will grow spiritually and numerically when we use our gifts together as part of the team! You are needed in this church!
Allow the Holy Spirit to blow into your life and lead you into some exciting serving opportunities!
Yours in Christ,
