About Gloria Dei:

At Gloria Dei, our goal each day is to create a safe space to tell our stories and continue our journey in faith together. Gloria Dei is an ELCA Lutheran Church in Rochester, MN. We are proud of our creative and collaborative spirit to create a supportive and positive environment for families, youth, and individuals.

At Gloria Dei, all people are welcome without distinction. We believe the invitation of Jesus was radical and all-inclusive, and we want to be the kind of community that says and does the things Jesus did. In this faith community, our welcome is wide open:

  • Open to people of all colors, backgrounds, and abilities.
  • Open to people who are straight, gay, bi, transgender, non-binary, or questioning.
  • Open to all generations, young, old, and in between.
  • Open to people of all income levels.
  • Open to lifelong followers of Jesus, occasional attenders, curious onlookers, people with doubts, and those who don’t quite fit the “box”.
  • Our invitation is open to all people because we believe everyone is created in God’s image, and that includes you!
