Watch the special Rally Day video invitation from Gloria Dei staff!
After online worship on Sunday, September 13, 2020, any time between 10:45 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. head to the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church parking lot for our Drive-Up Rally Day! This fall on Rally Day Sunday, we will kick off fall programming for children, youth and adult faith formation (all online through Jan. 6, 2021) with a mobile Rally Day – a drive-through event. Everyone will keep moving, wear masks and maintain physical distance. No lunch or other refreshments at this year’s Rally Day.
We ask everyone to enter the parking lot from westbound Highland Parkway as indicated on the map, so we don’t create any traffic jams around the intersection of Snelling and Highland. If there is a line of cars waiting to get into the lot, please pull as far over as you can to allow room for traffic to get around you. If someone is waiting to turn left into the parking lot from Highland Parkway, please let them in.
Enter the parking lot on Highland Parkway (south) side of building; exit on Eleanor Avenue (north) side of building. Keep moving to keep traffic flowing. We’ll also have signs and cones to guide everyone through the lot.
– Enjoy live music.
– Get Sunday School materials and an Altar Kit.
– Handouts and Gloria Dei bumper stickers.
– Free trees for the first 165 vehicles from our Caring for Creation team.
– Bring boxes of cereal for our Weekend Backpack Program.
– Bring diapers for Francis Basket.
– Receive a pastor’s blessing.
– And much more!
The idea is to keep moving to minimize exposure during this time of pandemic. If you prefer to walk or bike through, we welcome you and urge you to maintain physical distance as you move through the event. Please bring your household, including pets if you like, and remain in your car throughout the procession.
(In case of rain on September 13, we’ll postpone Rally Day to September 19, 10 a.m. to noon.)
