Worship

Gloria Dei is an inspired place where the church gathers to lift in praise and worship the greatness of God. Following the church calendar, we have special observances during Advent, Holy Week, and the season of Pentecost.

We also have special services unique to Gloria Dei throughout the year such as Rodeo Sunday, Freedom Sunday, Give Thanks Sunday, and Jingle Jam.

Service Times

We offer 3 different service styles every Sunday at Gloria Dei, including an afternoon service in Bilingual (Spanish and English). Each service is Christ centered, Bible-based and is relevant and applicable to daily living.

Next Steps in Discipleship

Sunday Discipleship Hour
9:45-10:45am

In order to equip and train you to grow and live out your faith as a disciple, we have dedicated time on Sunday mornings for engaging with God’s Word in community with age-appropriate ministry environments for kids, students and adults between services from 9:45-10:45am. Sunday morning Discipleship Hour is meant to be a primer catapulting us back into our daily lives as every-day missionaries where we live, work, learn, and play.

Kids & Students Adults

Small Groups
Throughout the Week

Discipleship happens within the context of community and living life together. There is a depth of learning that can only happen when we have people to imitate. The early Church had a rhythm of life together between the temple (Sunday mornings) and the home as they ate together, cared for one another, and met the needs of their community. Small Groups are our primary context for living life together on mission.
