Want to join a Life Group?

These groups are intentionally smaller gatherings of our congregation that meet regularly to share the Word of God and to better connect each one of us to others at Glendale and with our community. Our groups meet at restaurants, in each others’ homes, coffee shops and more and they meet monthly, weekly or bi-weekly.

If you are interested and/or have a question about our Life Groups, reach out to Chris Brazell.


Weekly Opportunities


Advent Study // Sundays Following Worship @ 11amCT

During the Advent season, we will be walking through the book, Keep Watch with Me. You are more than welcome to come to the weekly small group without reading the book, however, the book is an amazing daily devotional for the Advent season. Please email Pastor Steph if you’d like us to order you a book. There is a suggested donation of $14 which covers the cost of the book, but please don’t let that stop you from coming and being a part of this gathering! We’ve got you covered!


Prayer Group // Tuesdays @ 10amCT

All are invited to be part of our prayer group gatherings as we pray for our community and the world while working to deepen our individual prayer lives. Come join us in the prayer room at the church for this weekly group. Questions? Contact Pastor Steph Dodge
