About King of Glory Lutheran Church
Characteristics: King of Glory serves a large swath of the Dallas area, with members and visitors coming from both the immediate zip code as well as many surrounding neighborhoods and communities in multiple counties. The immediate zip code around the church has a fairly high population density with approximately 30,000 residents, although the county in which the church is housed has over 2.4 million residents as of 2010. The highest population growth has occurred along the corridor to the north of the church, stretching into Collin County. The neighborhoods around the church span a wide range of socio-economic levels.
Programs: King of Glory is a large church with a diverse array of programs for all ages, including a full children's curriculum, youth ministry and programs, adult Sunday School and small group ministries, and thriving life and activity groups from a post-college young professionals group up through a mature adult ministry. King of Glory has a robust music and worship program, with multiple choirs for all ages, Altar Guild and other groups. The church also operates or partners with a number of mission-oriented ministries including youth mission trips, Impact Dallas (congregation-wide service projects in the city), In The City For Good, Ramp Project, multiple food pantries, Dallas Area Interfaith and others. In addition, the church is serving the special needs community by creating a new quiet room in the Sanctuary for those whose family members include those with special needs. We are also leasing our facility to a special needs community, HEROES, that serves special needs young adults who have aged out of school programs.
Excitement: We are excited about the opportunity for greater outreach and carrying the message of grace to those who have yet to hear the Word. There is a sense that God is working within our church, and moving us towards new horizons. As an integral part of our outreach efforts, we want to encourage greater use of our facility by the community at large. The congregation is at the end of construction, having approved a $3.5 million capital campaign in 2015. The facility improvements include upgrades to (1) the Sanctuary (improved sound and new lighting, a quiet room for families with special needs children, and a larger chancel); (2) the Activity Center (improved sound and lighting, remodeled commercial-grade kitchen, and making the former gym into an alternative worship space that can also accommodate receptions, banquets and large meetings; (3) lower level classrooms (including adding a new large classroom that can be separated into two sides depending on the size of the groups); and (4) the Fellowship Hall, also on the lower level, which can be used for meetings, classroom space or other activities. With renovated facilities, and momentum on our many programs and areas of service, King of Glory is excited to go where God is calling us.
Partnership: King of Glory is among the largest congregations in the North Texas-North Louisiana Synod, and has remained quite active in synod affairs. The church is actively involved in synod and denominational leadership, and is regularly represented at meetings and conferences. It also provides a large portion of benevolence to the synod each year. The church also sends a large group of youth to the ELCA Youth Gathering every three years.
