The Gloria Dei Evangelical Lutheran Church is an historic church at 15 Hayes Street in Providence, Rhode Island. The single-story brick structure was designed by Martin Hedmark, and built in 1925-28 for a predominantly Scandinavian congregation established in 1890. The brick is laid in patterns, and the tower features a stepped gable roof. The corners of the main facade have small turrets, one topped with a lantern spire, the other with a needle. The design includes vernacular elements of Swedish architecture, a feature not generally found in the area.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
