Social Ministry

“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

Matthew 25:37-40 (NIV)

Social Ministry is Gloria Dei’s opportunity to extend God’s love beyond the walls of the church. Those who participate in Social Ministry can find rewarding opportunities to give back to the community throughout the year.  Here are just a few; new shoes for Project Heart, Annual Pet Blessing, Adopt a Family, Food Drives, Backpacks for Selah Freedom, Pajama Drive, 12 Days of Christmas and Souper Bowl of Caring.

If you would like to participate make sure you check the Social Ministry calendar to see current events.  You can also sign up for our eNews which will keep you connected to any Social Ministry happenings.
