Glendale Methodist Church was founded in 1945 in the growing Glendale neighborhood of south Nashville. In 1968, with the merger of the Methodist Church and the Evangelical United Brethren Church, the congregation became Glendale United Methodist Church. Since its founding, Glendale has considered its placement in a neighborhood setting to be an important part of its ministry.
At Glendale, we are a very open and loving community. This provides genuine opportunities to enter into meaningful relationships and to offer and receive support. Glendale strives to be a true community, where everyone is welcome to the table and has the opportunity to share their experiences, both joys and hardships.
We open our doors to the community in a variety of ways: neighborhood meet and greet events, our annual Blue Christmas service, and hosting Room in the Inn, to name a few.
We share our upstairs with ministry partners who offer spiritual direction, counseling, and other ministries. Our campus include a Labyrinth, where all are welcome to take some time to slow down and enter into a time of walking prayer.
Rev. Robert B. Coleman became our pastor in June 2014. With his guidance, we join into ministries to serve our community and to seek live out the call of God in a variety of ways.
We come together for worship every Sunday at 11 am with classes for all ages at 10 am. We invite you to be with us in worship on Sunday or any other event held by our community.
