"You have arrived at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Holmes Beach, Florida! It is located on beautiful Anna Maria Island off the west coast of Florida in the United States. 

We invite you to journey with us trusting that God's creative and redeeming presence and word in Jesus Christ is ever molding us into God's own daughters and sons. This ever renewing and molding event is a constant process until God fulfills all things in the future at his own good time. Please take time to get to know us on this website. Please contact us if you have any questions. We would be pleased and honored to have you worship with us.
