Our community life centers around worship, prayer, and service. You are always welcome at Gloria Dei! and are invited to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion. A Cry Room and a staffed nursery are available. We have two services each Sunday, one at 8:45 AM and the other at 11 AM. The 8:45 AM worship service includes music that primarily is led by the piano. The 11 AM service includes music that primarily is led by the organ, although there is always a great variety of musical styles at both services!
