We at Glendale UMC want you to know that no matter:
Where you’ve come from or where you are going; What you believe or what you may doubt; What you are feeling or just not feeling; What you have or don’t have; and No matter whom you love – all of who you are is welcomed into this community of faith by a God who loves you and knows you by name.
What to Expect…
What is worship like?
Glendale welcomes visitors each week in worship @ 10am. You will experience a message of hope and love, upbeat music and people with diverse faith journeys – old and young, raised in the church, new to the church, Catholics to those who question it all – you name it. All are welcome at Glendale.What is the community like?
Glendale is comprised of a diverse community and it is something that we love because it shows that Jesus’ love has no bounds. We have families that have been attending the church for generations as well as those who are new to this thing called “church.”What if I'm not a Christian?
Not a problem. We welcome everyone. Our faith is a journey – each person at their own place as we grow in this life together. Come as you are to Glendale.
