There’s always something happening at Glen Mar.

August Family Worship Series – “I am _____”

In the remaining summer weeks, we will explore who God says we are. This is a good reminder as many voices are contrary to this message. As children and youth prepare to return to school, this will be a helpful reminder. It is also a good reminder for every age. God, our Creator, sees the very best in us and the Holy Spirit perfects and restores us to be and reflect God’s own image. Please let us know if you have any questions. [Read More About Series]

Bridges Gift Card Drive 2022

The increasing cost of gas & groceries substantially impacts the ability of Bridges’ clients to pay for rent. Stretched budgets make it difficult for clients to get to work and feed their families. Please consider donating to our gift card drive this summer to help our clients reach their housing and financial goals! [Read More]

HopeWorks Needs Pantry Donations

As mentioned in last week’s Pastor’s Ponderings, HopeWorks is in great need of pantry donations. Due to high demand, they have run out of many staple foods and personal care products. All items donated must be new, unopened, and not expired or used. Toiletries and personal care items must be full size, not travel size. Visit the Hopeworks website for a current list of high demand pantry donation needs. Bring donations to Glen Mar – collection box in the Gathering Place.
