Girl Scout Troop 20620 of Southern Appalachia,
South Knoxville

At Gloria Dei (“Glory of God”) we practice open communion.  As always, all persons – and all means all – are invited to come to the table of grace every time we gather. As we share this sacred meal, we are reminded that God’s love will one day bring into harmony the entire world, wipe away all tears, end suffering and death, and bring eternal joy to all. We know that we do not dare to come into the presence of God or feed at God’s table by our own merits or because we are good. We come because God is great beyond our understanding. We must remind ourselves of this every time we prepare to receive by declaring together the gifts of God are free!​


Gloria Dei collects food for Vestal Food Pantry. This is a local charity of South Knoxville and we are always accepting

non perishable food and diapers to donate to this cause.

Thank you for your donation!
