Welcome to Glendale Church!

"Be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord" (Romans 12:11)

Welcome to Glendale Church. We are a community of people seeking to live life to the fullest by following the ways of Jesus. Together we are a community from every generation, which is the richness of who we are. We are devoted to serving all of God’s people with the love of Jesus that flows out from us. We are passionate about learning the scriptures, learning to live our faith daily, and learning about how we can be Jesus for the world. We are open to all, striving to create an atmosphere of welcome and belonging to anyone who walks through the door, no matter who they are, where they have come from, or where they are on their faith journey.

Knowing that God is at work within us to show us how to be a vital presence of Jesus in the south of the river suburbs for generations to come, we are in a transformation process at Glendale Church. You will see physical changes to our facility, vitalization happening to our worship experiences, and a powerful sense that God is doing something amazing among us. We hope you will join us in the transformation and become a part of the vital work God is doing through Glendale Church.

 

Join us this Christmas week for special services that will fit the needs of everyone.
