What can I expect?

Who is Gloria Dei?

Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is an intergenerational church, sharing Christ’s love in greater Cincinnati neighborhoods and around the world. We walk together as we grow in the Word, explore our purpose and strengthen our faith. We seek to put Christ’s love into action as a community and as individuals. We celebrate diversity as a great gift from God and strive to create a place where all are welcome, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or religious background.

What does Worship look like?

We offer 2 different worship experiences on Sunday mornings. Our 8:30 service is a traditional service. Our 10:30 worship offers a blended modern experience with a children’s message. View our services.

How do I dress?

There’s a place here for you, so come as you are. Some come in jeans and a T-shirt or shorts and flips flops while others wear a suit or dress, hat, and heels. Either way, you are dressed perfectly for Gloria Dei.

Where do I go?

When you get to Gloria Dei on Sunday, our greeters and ushers will point you in the right direction and answer any questions you may have. During the week, call or visit the church office for any help you might need.

What about my kids?

No matter the age of your children, Gloria Dei has a place for them. We have a comfortable nursery area full of toys for toddlers. The Good News Club offers a Sunday school experience throughout the school year. Both are staffed by loving caregivers and teachers who have been trained and background checked.
