"You have arrived at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Holmes Beach, Florida! It is located on beautiful Anna Maria Island off the west coast of Florida in the United States. 

We invite you to journey with us trusting that God's creative and redeeming presence and word in Jesus Christ is ever molding us into God's own daughters and sons. This ever renewing and molding event is a constant process until God fulfills all things in the future at his own good time. Please take time to get to know us on this website. Please contact us if you have any questions. We would be pleased and honored to have you worship with us. We would be pleased and delighted to have you share in the fellowship of God in Jesus Christ that we have come to know. 

Again, welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. All are welcome here!"

Ordination Invitation


Thank you to all of my Gloria Dei family for walking with me through seminary. Having accepted a call to be the pastor of All Saints Lutheran Church in Lutz, FL, I will now be ordained at my home congregation of Gloria Dei.  Since beginning seminary we have traveled the country following where God has been calling us, we never knew that it would be home.  I am very happy to start my call, I hope that you can join us in celebration. 


                                                   God Bless, Joshua Gyson
