Ames Partnership: Serving Together for God’s Glory

Ames Members Hurley Trip

Glen Mar Church has a wonderful partnership relationship with Ames Memorial United Methodist Church, located in the Sandtown community of Baltimore City. This enthusiastic and energetic partnership began with a mission to clean a vacant lot across the street from Ames Memorial Church. Since then, this enthusiastic and energetic relationship has blossomed into a full partnership where we work together to serve the world for God's glory. Ames Memorial UMC provides needed skills, experience, crew leaders, inspiration, and leadership on several of our youth mission trips and ministries.
