About Us


Gloria Dei is a congregation of mercy of Jesus Christ. Our name means "Glory of God."  We have had the joy of serving the South Knoxville and Seymour communities to the glory of God for over sixty years. 


At Gloria Dei we practice open communion.  As always, all persons  – and all means all –  are invited to come to the table of grace every time we gather. We know that we do not dare to come into the presence of God or feed at God’s table by our own merits or because we are good; We come because God is great beyond our understanding.
