Worship at Gloria Dei

There are three worship services at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church: 8:30am, 10:30am, and 5pm.  (Summer--8:30am, 10am, and 5pm) Our morning services lean toward a more celebrative, traditional style.  Often times the choir(s) sing at the morning services.  Our 5:00pm service is our alternative service with a simplified order and Holy Communion. (Call for summer hours)

Holy Communion is celebrated at all Sunday services following the command of Jesus to "do this..."  All people who believe that Christ is truly present in the sacrament are welcome to come forward.  Non-communing children are also invited to come forward for a blessing from a pastor.

Worship at Gloria Dei is for all people.  We believe young children learn best from their parents, by watching and participating.  We also understand that for very young children this is a process.  We do offer a nursery during the morning services.  


 

Baptism

Baptism is the Sacrament of "Beginning" in the Lutheran Church.  We baptize both infants and adults because of the command of Christ to "go and make disciples of all people, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit..."

If you are interested in baptism and membership in the Gloria Dei family, please call the church office for more information, (949)493-3414.

 

 

 

Holy Communion

Holy Communion is the sacrament of "becoming."  As Lutheran Christians we believe that Christ is truly present in this sacrament.  At Gloria Dei we practice "open communion."  That is, a person does not need to be a member of Gloria Dei, or a Lutheran to receive this sacrament, but simply to be a baptized believer and believes that Christ is really present. People from other denominations are also welcome to receive this gift.  At Holy Communion, young children receive a blessing.  We also offer First Communion classes for non-communing children during the year.  Call the church office for more information.
