Sunday Morning at First Glendale!
The pastoral staff and worship leaders of First Glendale offer dynamic, relevant worship experiences for today’s diverse world. We believe vital worship will encourage and inspire all those who wish to follow Jesus. We strive to be a “grace based” church that is inclusive of all persons, a place where all are invited and all are welcome.
Lay-Led Communion at 8:00 a.m.
For those who enjoy starting their day with Holy Communion, a Lay Led worship service with prayer, scripture, a brief meditation and Holy Communion is available each Sunday at 8:00 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall. (Note: In our United Methodist tradition, all are invited and welcome to share in Holy Communion.)
Traditional Worship at 9:00 a.m.
The 9:00 a.m. worship service is traditional in liturgy, music and preaching. Congregational singing is led by our new Rogers organ and special music is provided by each week by our Chancel Choir. During the summer months special music is provided by our excellent church musicians or soloists.
