1/6/19 Young Adults in Global Mission– Anna Moorhead recently returned from serving as an ELCA Young Adult in Global Mission (YAGM) in Southern Africa for the year. She served near Johannesburg working with gender-based violence initiatives, the HIV and AIDS Prevention Program, and at a daycare for children with disabilities. Anna uses her passion for the global church in her current position as a Campaign Interpreter for “Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA.”
1/13/19 Emergency Preparedness for Gloria Dei– Gloria Dei’s Emergency Preparedness Team is ready to update us on their work to ensure our staff, ushers and Sunday School teachers are prepared to help us respond in the event of an emergency. This year we’ll learn about how to shelter in place or respond to a tornado drill. This forum is especially important for ushers, worship assistants, committee members and all congregational leaders.
1/20/19 The Civil Rights Movement: People and Places Last fall, ten Gloria Dei members traveled through Alabama and Mississippi, meeting some of the foot soldiers of the Civil Rights Movement from the 50’s and 60’s. Following the stories and visiting the locations of many of the powerful and dramatic events, our group had experiences that shaped their hearts and minds. Be with us as they share stories and photos from their trip.
