At King of Glory Lutheran Church (ELCA) you can pursue a relationship with Christ. Through worship, through the community of seekers, and through life giving service, God is honored and we in turn grown in the richness of our faith.

King of Glory is a place where people love to experience the presence of God, grow together in community and make difference for Christ in the world. It is a place where one can explore God's call for one's life through sacred and vibrant worship, trusting learning environments, and opportunities for lasting friendships.

Mission: To be and make growing disciples.

Thank you KOG Community! We gathered mountains of food and hygiene products for NETWORK of Community Ministries. Wonderful to see your faces!

Big thanks to our essential volunteer team today!

[04/25/20]   The Emmaus Road disciples don't recognize Jesus at first. We humans have a history of not recognizing the deeper things initially. God reveals things to us in good time. Those revelations come as God's gracious gifts. What aren't you seeing just yet?

Good Friday Tenebrae Service
Online Tomorrow Night at 7:00 pm

Good Friday worship opportunities are not supposed to be a funeral for Jesus. We know about Easter — we know Jesus is not dead. Good Friday is a chance for us to reflect upon the lengths to which God will go to tell us we are loved and not forgotten. Even when we can't gather in person, we are not forgotten. Even when fear is getting the best of us, we are not forgotten. Jesus goes willingly to the Cross so that we will remember.

Supporting our ministry partners in this time of need.

[04/04/20]   Feeling empty? Jesus emptied himself, too. The implication seems to be that emptying is necessary for being filled. Hear more Sunday at 11:00am central time.

As you prepare for our first Holy Communion via Livestream, we're sharing the KOG Communion bread recipes.

Did you know that our Bread Baking volunteers bake fresh bread weekly for Communion? Perhaps while you're staying safe at home, you might like to try it out!

Thanks to Marilyn Cupp for sharing these with me today!

[03/21/20]   We are still live-streaming at 11am on Sunday. God has sent Samuel to anoint the new king. Samuel is a bit surprised by God’s choice. Too often, we humans just don’t see things the way God does.

[03/20/20]   Over the past few weeks, Mark and I have been sitting on our small front porch in the early evenings watching the light change on the pond across the street while listening to the sounds of the small fountain. We talk about our day and reconnect. It is a quiet time, a peaceful time that I have come to enjoy.

Yesterday, the “social distancing” of the past week along with the rainy weather must have been taking a toll on a lot of us. As we sat on our bench yesterday afternoon, a young family came by with 2 parents, 2 large dogs and 2 small toddlers trying to ride little bikes. The chaos of dogs pulling leashes and kids tangling up and falling off bikes was funny. Embarrassed to see that we were sitting there, they waved and moved on. Next 2 joggers came around the corner and gave us a shout of “Hi,” at the same time a man on a bike passed by and nodded. For about an hour we sat and watched these scenes repeated over and over. As we were about to go inside, a man comes jogging by, see us and slows enough to say “Hey, I’m your neighbor. I live behind you.” As we shout “Nice to meet you” he rounds the corner for home. At this moment, Mark turns to me and says, “You know what they are going to call us now? That’s the Sullivan’s. You know, that cute old couple that sits on their front porch waving to everyone.” I laugh and say, “Who are you calling old?”

We came inside, closed the door and I realized something amazing. I realized that even though we continue to keep our physical distance to help stop the spread of COVID-19, our hearts are leading us to reject “social distancing” from one another. We continue to come out of our houses, walk our neighborhoods and seek one another out if only to shout “Hi,” from a distance. We continue to check on one another, offer to help with groceries, call and email friends and loved ones. We continue to love and care even if we are at a distance.

Where is your heart leading you today?

[03/19/20]   As a person of faith, I have always been able to look back on times of sadness and uncertainty and see where God was at work — guiding and helping me. Today, I woke up and thought I don’t want to wait until this summer or even next year to see where God had been at work during this time. I want to look for Him now and share those moments with all of you. I am hoping you will post and share your God moments here as well. The news is filled with words like fear, scarcity, and isolation. Let's create a place where words like hope, blessings and community can be found. Together let's create a page where we can turn when we feel overwhelmed with sadness and anxiety.

I see God's preparation:
Seven or eight years ago, King of Glory began to live stream our worship services. The number of people who watched were just a handful. Over time our cameras and sound improved and the number of people who watched grew. Once our website began to archive past services and sermons, we began reaching thousands of people all week, not just on Sundays. God was preparing us.

Over the past couple of years email became our main form of communication. In addition to posts on the website, email lets us reach our members and guests quickly, keeping them up to date at a moment’s notice. God was preparing us.

Last week, we had to do something that I would never have thought we would do — we closed our facility. However, we did not close our church. Our facility is made of bricks and mortar, but our church is a community — near or far, separate or together —it does not begin and end inside those walls. God prepared us and today, we can still worship, we can still communicate, we can still serve. Our church is open, and I see God in this.

You are the church. Where do you see God today?

King of Glory’s council met virtually last night. Even though use of our building has stopped, King of Glory’s ministry and work continues. We are grateful for staff’s and volunteer’s ongoing service during difficult times. #sociallydistantspirituallypresent
