Reflections on our 30Th Anniversary
Since celebrating our 30th Chartering anniversary in January, I have been remembering back to the past, present and dreaming of the future.
Back in September of 1981 our land was purchased by the New Church Development group. There were people working behind the scenes long before our first Pastor Wayne Walther was even asked to take on the task of a new church start. How well I remember Floyd Bosshardt the consultant for this major project and the kind, warm person he was.
What a joy to be given the opportunity to give back to helping others with the 30th Anniversary commitment cards. Glendale has been the recipient of many gifts over the years.
A seed was planted in Savage all those years ago that has grown into Glendale UMC. Just like a child we have had our growing pains but we have also had some wonderful joys as well.
While it is good to remember and know where and how we came to be it also time to look to our future and our presence in this community. What is God calling us to do next? This coming weekend the Healthy Church Initiative Team and all of you are invited to attend Saturday, Feb 7th. 9 A.M to Noon.
Come join us to see what God holds in store for the future of Glendale. Let’s plant some new seeds in a new season.
