One hundred thirty poverty-stricken children around the world will receive a shoebox filled with fun gifts, school supplies, and hygiene items, thanks to Glen Mar’s participation this year in Operation Christmas Child (OCC) – a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational evangelical Christian organization.

Glen Mar Church partnered with Columbia Medical Practice to hold two drive-through COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Glen Mar’s parking lot on Saturdays, August 28 and October 2, 2021.  Those who wanted to be vaccinated could register online or onsite.  Both clinics were open to everyone 12 and older.
As a result of the first event, 19 of our neighbors received either their first or second Pfizer vaccinations. At the second event, people had the opportunity to receive their first dose, second dose, or a booster shot of the Pfizer vaccine.
