There are many ways to get involved and “in community” here at Glen Mar, and our Fall Kickoff kick-starts that whole process. [Read More]

Wish Upon A Star Needs YOU!

Each year, Glen Mar’s Wish Upon A Star program provides Christmas gifts to children and families in need. We’ve had a few “well-earned retirements” from our Planning Team and need to add some new volunteers. If interested, please email the “WUAS” team and a member will follow up with you to discuss and answer any questions. We’re sure there is a role on the team for YOU that fits your interests and available time. [Read More]

If you are feeling lonely, experiencing a crisis, struggling through a difficult time, or simply stressed by everyday life, talk to one of the pastors or email our StephenMinistry team. We are ready to care for you! [Read More]
