NEWS & EVENTS

The recording of last Sunday’s worship can be found by visiting the WATCH ONLINE tab on our website: www.gloriadeilutheran.com or our Facebook page: GLORIA DEI LUTHERAN ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND.

September 18th was our opportunity to serve at Our Daily Bread. The Gloria Dei team helped to serve 108 meals to some hungry, appreciative folks.

A week from Sunday, October 2nd, is our monthly gathering for community food pantries. As you are shopping or cleaning out your pantry next week, consider what you could contribute. Nonperishable items of any type or quantity are welcome.

 

PEOPLE

Gail Patsios suffered a serious fall and was briefly hospitalized. She is now back home recuperating and appreciates your prayers.

Roger Liesch is at Tidewell Hospice. Please keep Roger and his wife, Paula, in your prayers as he lives out his last days.

A longtime associate member of Gloria Dei, Bob Coulter, has died. For the last several years Bob was a resident of Freedom Village, but he will be buried with his late wife back home in Michigan.

 

OUR PANDEMIC PRACTICES

Sunday communion worship is held at 9:30 AM in the sanctuary. Various aspects of the service have been modified for public health reasons. Also, all our HVAC systems have been enhanced for improved air quality. Those wishing to wear masks are welcome to do so.

Worship services are also being broadcast online via Facebook on Sundays at 9:30 AM. You do NOT need to be a Facebook member to watch our services or other videos. Our Facebook page can be found by clicking here:
