King of Glory is located on the northwest side of Boise near Meridian. Our worship life is rooted in Lutheran heritage and revolves around Word and Sacrament. Throughout the year we draw from a wellspring of services and liturgies – primarily the Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
At King of Glory we seek to “Reflect God’s Grace” in worship, through church ministries, and in daily life. We are especially committed to ecumenical ministry-building bridges with other Christians; neighborhood ministry; community ministries, and youth ministries.
We support a variety of community food and clothing distribution programs, as well as Interfaith Sanctuary-a homeless shelter for women, men and children. We participate in “Rake up Boise,” an annual “Crop Walk,” “Paint the Town,” Habitat for Humanity builds, and City Light, a support shelter for women and children. A variety of other community ministries are promoted through our Social Ministry Committee throughout the year.
In both local and national settings, we seek to nurture faith and service development in a variety of ways. Youth are also active as worship leaders where all the baptized are welcome to share their gifts.
We recently updated our church kitchen in hope of responding to hunger concerns in our neighborhood. We house both a preschool and home school program during the week. We support a neighborhood food pantry-the second largest in the state. We enjoy Christmas caroling through our neighborhood each December and are intentional about inviting our neighbors to participate in Vacation Bible School and other events.
Globally, we support our sister synod in Tanzania, missionaries in Africa, and ELCA World ministries.
Following Christ is a lifelong calling. Educational, service and fellowship opportunities are encouraged and offered for all ages both on Sunday mornings and during the week. There are a number of small group ministries including Book Group, Quilting Group, Bible Study, Men’s Group, Women of the ELCA and community feeding groups.
As a Reconciling in Christ congregation, King of Glory commits to celebrating the love of God with all people. Whatever your abilities, gender identity, sexual orientation, relationship status, color, culture, faith tradition or economic circumstance; whatever your past or present – or if you’ve ever felt like an outsider – you are welcome here.
