ALL ARE WELCOME
Empowered by Christ’s love, Gloria Dei reaches out as an inclusive, welcoming church through worship and social action.
Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, a city-wide and globally-connected parish committed to ministry in the Hillside neighborhood of Duluth, MN, and a member of the Northeastern MN Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Gloria Dei is one of the oldest Lutheran churches in Duluth and the region, but we see God’s redeeming love active in the world today and we embrace a vision for God’s mission that gathers together people wonderfully diverse in age, race, ability, background, and experience.
As a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) congregation, we
welcome and strive to incorporate persons of all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientations into full participation in the church. Gloria Dei is committed to racial equity and practicing anti-racism in our words, actions, and public presence. We welcome you to join us for worship or one of our many special community or ministry events.

Since 1942, Gloria Dei has broadcast its worship service live on WDSM Radio – AM 710. This is the longest running live broadcast of a worship service on the same station in the State of Minnesota. We continue to be thankful for the radio as an instrument to spread the good news of God’s love in Christ Jesus for all people and now have other ways to connect with our community as well.
