We continue to be the Church, the Body of Christ together. We continue our work of proclaiming the Gospel in new and creative ways and in all we do. We thank you again for being a part of the important mission and ministry of God’s Growing Family we call Gloria Dei. Stay safe, healthy and well. God’s Peace!

Dear Friends –
 
I am writing to thank you for donating 1,000 forks wrapped with napkins for use by The Community Kitchen – a program of Catholic Community Services.  THANK YOU!
 
Our suppliers have been out of forks for weeks now and we were not sure what to do.  And then – Gloria Dei volunteers to the rescue.  Thanks to Beth Tobin and Diana “Dee Dee” Smith who orchestrated the donation, and the helpful volunteers from Gloria Dei, The Community Kitchen is once again supplied with enough forks to serve our hungry neighbors.  THANK YOU!
 
Please know that the Gloria Dei Friday Lunch crew is a blessing and their consistent, joyful help has been essential for years.  Throughout COVID, which is still with us, the Gloria Dei Friday Lunch crew has gone above and beyond.  Which is saying a lot as they always do so much.  The Gloria Dei crew is made up of truly amazing individuals, and together they make an unstoppable and outstanding team.  Please know we appreciate all the Church and its members do for our hungry neighbors.  THANK YOU!
 
All my best,

Intergenerational Sunday School

Growing In Faith Together

Intergenerational learning means all ages from the youngest to oldest in our community Growing In Faith Together — from and with each other.  As a congregation we will focus on one Bible story for the month.  Bible story videos, songs, and background information links are below.  Opportunities will be available in a variety of ways to respond to and interact with the story.  

Sunday Morning In Person Sunday School Schedule:
This schedule is approximate and will adjust to accomodate the flow of worship. 

10:00 – 10:10 Fellowship Time
10:10 – 10:25 Presentation – Luther Hall   
10:25 – 10:45 Response Time – Various locations  
10:45 – 11:00 Fellowship Time

In worship, we follow the pattern of hearing and responding to Scripture. This format of Sunday school models worship and invites us to do the same.  We will hear the story from Scripture together and be invited to respond. Response stations will be located throughout Luther Hall, the Fireside Room, Gathering Space, and Playground (weather permitting).  Each station will have instructions and invite people of all ages to engage, reflect and respond.
