Faith Lens – Weekly Bible studies that engage youth and young adults in connecting world events with the Bible, faith, and everyday life. This intertwines readings from each Sunday morning with current events.  There is generally a pause during the summer months.

Spiritual Gift Assessment - Do you know what your spiritual gifts are?  The Spiritual Gifts Assessment tool is a quick survey you can take to identify your spiritual gifts. After you have completed the survey, you will receive a document highlighting your spiritual gifts.

Hampton Roads Ecumenical Lodgings and Provisions - A local ministry that Gloria Dei partners with. HELP meets people in their hour of greatest need—people who are homeless, who are hungry, who are hurt, who are at the fringes of society—people who need their faith and dignity restored.

ELCA Good Gifts - Looking for a non-traditional way to give gifts for folks’ birthdays, anniversaries, and Christmas? ELCA Good Gifts is a great way to honor someone by helping others in need.

Lutheran Disaster Response - We bring God’s hope, healing and renewal to people whose lives have been disrupted by disasters in the United States and around the world. When the dust settles and the headlines change, we stay to provide ongoing assistance to those in need. We are usually the first to arrive on the scene and the last to leave.  98% of your donations directly assists those in need.

Lutheran World Relief - This organization acts much like Lutheran Disaster Response except it is in a global manner. Lutheran World Relief saves and improves lives in the poorest parts of the world. We will persist until your love reaches every neighbor.
