Grace to you and peace from God our Father, & from our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

I am Pastor Charles Bang and on behalf of all the saints who gather at Gloria Dei, I welcome you in Christ's name to our website. Please feel free to browse through all of our links to learn more about how our community serves our Lord and His Church; how we live the gospel here on the peninsula as part of the Virginia Synod which is part of the larger Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; and how you are welcome to participate in any part of our ministry.

We would welcome the opportunity to meet with you or speak with you about our church and congregation; its youth ministry, music ministry, Christian Education and Formation, our day care program and Gloria Dei Lutheran School, a gold-medal winner for the Best in Hampton Roads in 2013, 2014, and 2015 for best private school and best child care program in Hampton Roads. Our school serves children aged two years through 8th grade.

Our other ministries include Sunrise House, our Adult Day Care ministry, A.A., Boys and Girl and Cub Scouting, we participate in H.E.L.P. (Hampton Ecumenical Lodgings and Provisions) as well as its neighborhood pantry and feeding programs.

I thank you for visiting our site. May God bless you this day.
