Welcome to King of Glory

We know that visiting a new church for the first time can feel intimidating, but our hope is that you will feel welcome at King of Glory from the moment you arrive. To help you plan your morning at KOG, we’ve included helpful links to information about our location, service times, worship services and the programs we offer for adults and children.

We hope you’ll stop by our Welcome Center on Sunday morning, located inside the Sanctuary building, so that our team of friendly volunteers can welcome you and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into the KOG Community!

Dear King of Glory Members and Friends,

As many of you know, COVID-19 cases are quickly increasing in Arizona, and Arizona is considered one of the COVID-19 “hot spots” in the nation.

The Executive Council has taken this issue very seriously and has met as a Council nearly every week since late March (virtual meetings through Zoom/conference calls) to discuss when in-person Sunday services will begin again.  While Council would like to be “back in church” just as much as all of the Congregation, the time is not yet right to take this step.  After prayerful consideration of this issue, the Council has determined that it is not in the best interest of the Church and its members to begin Sunday services in mid-July as was tentatively planned.  Council and staff will continue to track the spread of COVID-19 in Arizona on a weekly basis and will determine the proper date to reconvene for in-person Sunday services.

We miss you and our time together worshipping each Sunday.  We will keep you posted in the coming weeks and continue to pray for each of you.  Thank you for your continued understanding and support as we work through these difficult issues. We are all in this together and ask you to pray about these issues with us.

God’s blessings to you and your family,

Mark Sahl, President

King of Glory Lutheran Church Executive Council
