>>> ALL WORSHIP and ACTIVITIES at Gloria Dei SUSPENDED until further notice.
Secrets keep us and our loved ones trapped in addictions. Often people are so ashamed they don’t want anyone at church to know. There is hope if you struggle with addiction. A member who has been through this journey is ready to provide the support and encouragement needed for recovery. Please complete this form in confidence and you will be contacted and connected to support and caring. You are not alone.

Action / goals

Gloria Dei Lutheran is a Community Committed to Facing Addiction
Gloria Dei is committed to creating a culture of trust, care, and openness for those impacted by addiction. Other congregations across Sioux Falls are also joining us in this venture.

This initiative is designed to reduce barriers by changing how we think about the disease of addiction, those impacted and how we can support them. By transforming our community's attitudes about addiction, we hope that more people will get well and stay well.

Recovery Advocates

Connect with a Recovery Advocate
Members of Gloria Dei have been trained to befriend those who have concerns about their own drinking or drug use, as well as family members who are experiencing concern for someone they love. Gloria Dei Lutheran’s Recovery Advocates can listen, pray, encourage, and help connect individuals to recovery support. They are committed to keeping all concerns confidential.
