Bulletin

Welcome to Gloria Dei; we are glad you are here!

It’s our confession that the Holy Spirit draws us in so that we can know the love and grace of Jesus. Wherever your life is right now, trust that today, God gives you these gifts.

We’d love to meet you! Stop by the Welcome Center, or make an introduction at gloriadeisf.org/hello

Today is Ash Wednesday. We remember that we are dust and to dust we shall return. We remember that we are God’s and to God we belong. With the imposition of the ashes we remember our reliance on God. We are people who mess up, who sin. We also have a God who meets us where we are at, washes us anew in the waters of our baptism, forgives us, and calls us to walk faithfully. Remember today and always, you are God’s and to God you shall return.
