A city-wide and globally-connected parish committed to ministry in the Hillside neighborhood of Duluth, Minnesota, Gloria Dei is 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 it sees God’s redeeming love active in the world today and embraces a vision for God’s mission that gathers together people wonderfully diverse in age, race, ability, background, and experience. Gloria Dei is also a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Church, meaning that we welcome and strive to incorporate all persons, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, into full participation in the church. We welcome you to join us for worship or one of our many special community or ministry events.

From Our Home to Yours


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.
