Discover What's Happening Now At Gloria Dei

Welcome to Operation Arctic! Every day, our kids are bombarded with the message that the Bible isn’t the true Word of God, that it can’t be trusted to tell us the truth about the past or, more importantly, about how we can receive the gift of eternal life. With the Operation Arctic VBS 2017 theme, your kids will warm up to the Word as they explore the coolest Book on the planet and discover how we can know for sure that the Bible is God’s written word to us!

Grab your parka and snow boots! With this VBS, we’re headed deep into the stunning Arctic Circle that is filled with treasure and thrilling to explore! And be sure to pack your Bible—we’ll be learning all about that breathtakingly beautiful Book that is filled with treasure and thrilling to explore! As we venture into the cold tundra, we’ll discover that the BIBLE:

  • Is the Book of Books, unique in every way!
  • Has had an Incredible Impact upon our world!
  • Is the Bedrock Base of our lives!
  • Is a Letter of Love in which God tells us how we can become His children!
  • Is Exciting to Explore as we learn it, love it, and live it!

Let’s plunge on in to this cold world and God’s wonderful Word! Operation Arctic promises to be a flurry of fun and excitement! Let’s go!

Please join us for a one-night, exclusive showing of "A Return to Grace", highlighting Martin Luther's Life and Legacy. Join us at our local theater at 6:30 PM on Monday, October 2nd. Tickets areavailable online or at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.

500 years ago, Martin Luther triggered a seismic upheaval that rocked the western world—with an impact that continues to reverberate to this day. This entertaining new film follows the great adventure story of Luther’s life, packed with political intrigue, kidnappings, secret hideouts, and life-or-death showdowns. At the same time, it's a story about the most important questions of life. "Who am I?" "What is my purpose?" "How do I get right with God?"

It’s a must-see for any lifelong Lutheran, and a chance to share the message of our Lutheran heritage with others. And the only place you can see the film is in Marcus Ho-Chunk Cinema on the night of our church’s special event, October 2, 2017. This screening is the perfect outreach opportunity—a chance to invite friends and neighbors to an entertaining event in our community.

This is the first time in more than 60 years that Lutherans have made a feature-length film about Martin Luther and the Reformation. Filmed in historic locations across Europe, this movie brings Luther’s story to life with exquisite attention to detail. It’s a way to strengthen our faith by revisiting the birth of the Protestant Reformation, and a chance to share that experience with others.

**IMPORTANT: All tickets must be purchased in advance.
Tickets can be purchased HERE.
