Gloria Dei is excited to be hosting our circuit's Area Reformation Service on November 2, 2014 at 4pm. Congregations from Petaluma and Windsor, Vallejo and Concord, Livermore, Modesto, San Jose, and Clovis will join us in Belmont for a celebration of the blessings God has given to us through the work of Martin Luther and the other reformers. Through the Reformation, God restored the true teaching of God's Word that we do not earn forgiveness and salvation, but it is given to us as a free gift through Jesus' death and resurrection.
Pastor Jason Schmidt from St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Citrus Heights, CA will be our guest preacher for the service. The service will be followed by a dinner hosted and provided by the members of Gloria Dei.
All are welcome to this special service, both the members of our neighboring congregations and those in our community. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Shrimpton.
