Holy Week

at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church


Palm Sunday

March 24 at 9 a.m.


Remember when Jesus entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey, and the people worshipped him, shouting "Hosanna."


Come join us on Palm Sunday, when we hear the whole story of Christ's passion (His love for us), from Palm Sunday to His death on the cross at Calvary.


"[Just as it is written], 'Fear not, daughter of Zion; behold your king is coming, sitting on a donkey's colt." John 12:15

Maundy Thursday 
March 29 at 7 p.m.

Remember the night that Jesus gave us Himself  in Holy Communion at the Last Supper.


Remember when our Lord was betrayed, arrested, and tried before Pontius Pilate.  


"But He was pierced for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His wounds we are healed."  Isaiah 53:5  

Good Friday
March 30, at 7 p.m.
Come remember Jesus's time on the cross. How the Son of God, the Lord of Heaven became a man for our sakes, and died for our sins.
"And I, when I am lifted up, will draw all people to Myself. He said this to show by what kind of death He was going to die." John 12:32-33

The Easter Vigil

March 31, 6 p.m.

Remember the gift of Holy Baptism.  Jesus died for you.  He lay in the tomb for you.  He rises again from the dead for you.  In Baptism He joins you to Himself and gives these gifts to you.


Come and celebrate His resurrection with us.  Together with Christians around the world we rejoice, "Christ is risen!  He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!"


"We were buried therefore with Him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life." Romans 6:4






Easter Sunday

April 1, 9 a.m.


He is risen! He is risen, indeed!



Remember that Jesus lives!  He lives for you.  He has won your salvation.

On Easter Sunday, we continue rejoicing in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, who defeated death so that we can live with Him forever.


You are also welcome to join us for a brunch after the service and

children's Easter egg hunt.


"For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation." Romans 5:10-11




Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is a congregation of the

Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. 


We are a friendly, confessional congregation, finding our comfort in the cross of Christ.

We'd love to have you join us for Easter festivities and beyond. We hope you find comfort here.
