Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church 


You Are Welcome Here!

We gather for worship on the unceded, traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples, who for millennia have lived, worked, and played upon these lands and paddled the waters of the Salish Sea. We give thanks for the Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh, and Musqueam peoples and their stewardship of these lands. With the Creator’s guidance we commit to caring for this earth in ways that bring respect, reconciliation, healing, and wholeness to the peoples, land, waters, air, vegetation, and all creatures.

Covid-19 Safety 

We encourage everyone who qualifies to keep their COVID-19 vaccinations up to date. Vaccines, including   boosters, remain the best way to protect against severe disease, hospitalization and death.

They may also help prevent long-term complications from COVID-19 infection.

Some of us continue to wear face coverings while others have ditched their masks. We respect each person's decision. In order to minimize transmssion, we ask that you stay home if you feel unwell. We continue to have sanitizing stations at the entrances to our building.

We have a large sanctuary space that provides enough space for everyone to spread out.
