What excites me most about serving at Gloria Dei! is being part of such a radically welcoming, deeply loving, richly spiritual and intensely serving community of faith that is so clearly and firmly rooted in the love and grace of Jesus.

Why People Come

Awed by the beautiful music and friendly environment. I know that God’s love is around me when I am in this place, with this family, a non-judgmental group who welcomes everyone. Come for the music, but stay to get to know us.

The Arundel Vocal Arts Society practices here on Wednesday evenings from September through April. The congregation is very accommodating and friendly. Plenty of parking. Always seems to be bustling with activities. Pastor Shawn can sing!
