church front We are a welcoming, affirming, and safe congregation for all who attend—whoever you are, whatever your journey or background. God excludes no one, and neither do we. 

Our mission is to reveal the love of Christ in all its tenderness and grandeur to the community in which we live. We desire to embrace the wonder of humanity in its complexity, diversity, and beauty--and to do so without precondition. In short, we yearn to reveal the splendor of Christ and to affirm the worth of all people.

We regret to announce the passing of Mrs. Ruth Moore on December 16 in Huntsville, Alabama. She used to attend Glendale City, and was part of the committee that selected our choir robes; she also assisted Pastor Denise Kasischke in playing piano for the children’s divisions. Additionally, some physicians may remember her from the time she worked at County Hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

131 ChristiansGrace Center (Fellowship Hall, north end)—New book study: “131 Christians Everyone Should Know by the Editors of Christian History Magazine. Examining the lives of history-changing Christians, this book shows how thought leaders among preachers, musicians, missionaries, denominational founders, and others have forever changed the course of the Christian Church. Vignettes of life stories as diverse as Martin Luther, Billy Graham, J. S. Bach, Harriet Tubman, and William Miller inspire us today to learn from their examples. (See also for more fascinating historical data, carefully and objectively researched.)

Please note that there will be no young adult luncheon or church potluck today.
