Life in the Good Shepherd’s Flock

Dear Glen Mar friends,

This weekend is Mother's Day, so I hope you'll join us, and invite family and friends, as we look at what it means for Jesus to be our "Good Shepherd" in times like these. We'll talk about life in the flock of this Shepherd, and ways that Jesus' leading and care is reflected in human love, and the "ordinary miracles" of life as one of Jesus' own.

I am so grateful for all the ways God is providing nourishment in this season of "wilderness/COVID" through Glen Mar church! We are certainly "Praising God" online each week, and I'm loving being able to say "good morning" to you! We are growing disciples - From Word on Wednesdays to daily morning prayer, to learning and connecting that's happening online with our 18 and under's a season to give thanks. We have daily prayer each weekday morning, and Bible studies through the week, including a class called BASE (an introduction to scripture) that has 16 people in it. I'm so grateful. I'm grateful for the ways Glen Mar continues to serve the world! Check out our COVID-19 response page for more info on that.

Also, as you know, Pastor Jen is preparing to move to her next appointment as the pastor at Reisterstown UMC. Her last Sunday with us will be 5/31 (It's Pentecost and she's preaching! I'm sorry to see her go but I'm looking forward to hearing her preach and celebrating her amazing gifts and ministry). We wanted to give people a chance to touch base with her in all the ways we can in this strange season, so she has set up virtual "Office Hours." If you'd like to have some time with Pastor Jen, just email Kyara Kelley at or to make an appointment and to get a Zoom link.
