“Welcome to King of Glory Lutheran church… A Place to Grow”
Welcome to King of Glory Lutheran Church! I’m delighted you’ve taken a moment to read about our congregation. We truly are a congregation that lives daily through our Mission Statement: As God’s people, graced by differences, nurtured by the Spirit, and gifted to serve, we invite and welcome all to grow in Faith. Come as you are: whether you’ve grown up in a church or never stepped inside the doors of one, we’d love to meet you. Come as you are: single, married, divorced, widowed, or partnered, God claims you and loves you. Come as you are: struggling with all the issues of life, celebrating milestones, or reminiscing your best years, there is a place for you here.
We are Lutheran (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – ELCA) and believe in God’s radical love and grace for each person. When we worship, we center ourselves in God’s Word, the Bible, and the Lord’s Supper, Communion (a meal of forgiveness and grace). We take pride in every member growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ and then using our God given gifts to serve this congregation and larger community. We actively support ministries here in Loveland: House of Neighborly Service, Angel House, KidsPak and more. Walking each day in God’s expansive grace, we are free to follow Jesus’ command, ‘you shall love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ (Matthew 22:39)
King of Glory offers a variety of ministries and activities that you can connect with and make a difference. Whether you are a household of one or many, we have a place for you. Here you’ll discover group interactions and individual relationships, Bible study and community service, fellowship and friendship, even artistic expression or event management. Above all, we welcome you into a congregation built on the belief every person is God’s child. King of Glory is a safe environment of acceptance and respect.
God loves you, so come as you are! Be our guest. I look forward to meeting you. Pastor Ruth Ann
