WELCOME TO GLORIA DEI

   Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, a city-wide and globally-connected parish committed to ministry in the Hillside neighborhood of Duluth, MN. 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.

77 Years of Radio Ministry, since March 22, 1942

On March 19, 2017, we celebrated the diamond anniversary of this significant ministry, which has broadcast Gloria Dei’s worship since March 22, 1942.  We thank God for this ongoing opportunity of sharing the gospel through the Radio and through the Internet.  You’re invited to reflect on this valuable outreach: share a story, support a broadcast or a portion of the broadcast, gift a special gift of $75 for the anniversary, consider learning what happens behind the scenes to be more hands on if you wish.  Thank you for your prayerful support!
