Living Advent Wreath Donations


Join us this Advent season as we await the birth of Jesus, and explore what the incarnation of hope, joy, peace and love look like in our lives.

Speaking of incarnation— hope, joy, peace and love are tangible, accessible and completely shareable as we continue our Epic Advent tradition of the Living Advent wreath.

During the four weeks leading up to Christmas, we mark the time by lighting a candle, and filling one box in the center of the our worship space with items to bless our world. We are becoming the incarnation of hope, joy, peace and love through the entire season of Advent. So… when you come to church on the following dates, bring the following items to share:

New! The Table Worship Experience

New! The Table Worship Experience

Sundays Sept-May: 8:45am in Sanctuary

The Table is the newest version of our 8:45am worship opportunity in the Sanctuary. The Gloria Dei staff and a host of volunteers have been hard at work crafting an experience rooted in our rich liturgical tradition that is fresh and inviting every week. Our weekly offering will include diverse leadership from pastors, worship assistants and cantors, and we will explore a variety of musical styles and dynamic messages grounded in the the gospel.


To create an open environment, we’ve made some changes to the space in the Sanctuary. Our baptismal font sits at the back of the space to create a feeling of welcoming and a reminder that you are loved when you enter, and a reminder of who you are when you leave.


A Kid’s Corner is set up in the front of the Sanctuary as a place for children and their families to engage in creativity and expression during worship and as a reminder of the wonder we can learn from them in our everyday lives.



We are excited to offer this new worship experience. We know you and your friends and family will enjoy it too!
