Chicago’s Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and School in Garfield Ridge

Welcome to the webpage for Gloria Dei Parish, Chicago! Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and School is a congregation of the one, holy, Christian and apostolic Church founded by our Lord Jesus Christ. We are affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, and are a part of that Synod’s Northern Illinois District. Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is a lively congregation located in the thriving Garfield Ridge neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago, Illinois, near Midway Airport, at the corner of 53rd and Major Avenues.

The purpose of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and School is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and to administer His Holy Sacraments. To accomplish these purposes, Gloria Dei utilizes the historic sacramental and liturgical worship as preserved in the practice of the Lutheran Church. To further accomplish these purposes, we also offer Christ-centered Lutheran education in our Pre-Kindergarten through Eighth Grade School. We welcome you to visit us at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and School anytime. Our Parish Pastor, the Rev. Steven J. Anderson, is available to talk to you, as well as our Parish School Principal, Virginia Terrell.

In Christ,

Pastor Steven J. Anderson
