60 Years!

Gloria Dei wants to let you know about the celebration of our 60th anniversary in 2016. We are very excited about marking this milestone in our church’s mission and would like to invite you to be a part of our celebration and reflection in any way that you can. Since all of our members are a part of our history, we would like to take this time to thank you and to encourage you to celebrate with us.

January 31st - 7:00 pm - Candlemas Sunday. We will celebrate Candlemas, traditionally celebrated on February 2nd, with an evening service to mark the beginning of our anniversary year.

March 20, 2016 - Palm Sunday. We will have a visit by Bishop H. Julian Gordy, the bishop of the Southeastern Synod, who will preach and celebrate communion with us. A potluck will follow the service. And we will display photos from the life of our faith community, update our history and share our memories.

Upcoming events, watch for dates:

In April - Outdoor concert with our own Gloria Dei church musicians and local Knoxville musicians. Admission will be a donation for the FISH food bank in South Knoxville.

In the summer - Ice cream social.

In October – The dedication of our renovated courtyard and a special addition to our facilities.

Advent - We will end our year of celebration with Advent services that renew our spirit and dedicate ourselves to a New Year of mission in our community.

None of these events require you to RSVP, but we would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have about our celebrations.  Please contact us on Facebook, via email at gloriadeiknox@gmail.com, or call us at 865-573-5911.

Gloria Dei is a congregation of mercy of Jesus Christ. Our name means "Glory to God." We have had the joy of serving the South Knoxville and Seymour communities to the glory of God for over fifty years.

Every Third and Fifth Sunday we celebrate with the contemporary "O the Joy" service.

Come worship with us soon. We will be so glad to see you.
