Next up in the series: "Working in a Coal Mine"

We had a great group join us last month for this intriguing series where we experience a different world for 30 days.

Each time we gather, we will watch a DVD seeing what it's like for someone to experience first-hand a world antithetical to their own existence for one month. Discussion will follow about what we saw. All adults are welcome!

Please contact Betsy Maier at for more information.

Nicole's Place is coming to Gloria Dei Church!

In February 2022, the offices of Nicole's Place, a Laurel House satellite that provides support to individuals and families in Eastern Montgomery County who have been impacted by domestic violence, will relocate to Gloria Dei Church.

Gloria Dei Church has been a partner of Nicole’s Place since they opened, and we have collaborated together on the Finding Hope Planning Committee and events.

We are excited for the opportunity to have Nicole's Place here in our building!

Nicole’s Place was named in memory of Nicole Rhoads Peppelman, who was a loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend.
