Our Purpose and Mission Statement

Working to build God's dream. Help wanted!

We the people of Glen Rhodes United Church, are determined that our life together will be fully inclusive for people of all ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, differing abilities, ethnic origins and economic circumstances. Therefore, we hope that God will work in us so that we will be a sensitive congregation, willing to share our faith and gifts in language and worship, in the life and work of our church and wherever God calls us to do justice in the wider community, with compassion, fun and laughter

May 28 evening service - "The source of peace"

The regular fourth Wednesday evening service is coming up at Glen Rhodes. The theme is from a Japanese hymn as we end Asian History Month: "where, O where, can weary souls/find the source of peace?" The hymn title, in English, is "Here, O God, Your Servants Gather."

What a difference when we gather in the evening. Everyone's day is winding down, and we tend to be more contemplative in these worships as the light wanes. The group is smaller than the Sunday congregation and people gather closer together, both of which increase the sense of intimacy. Communion will be celebrated--taking some bread and a little grape juice to get in touch with the earth that brings forth grain and fruit, food producers, our hunger and all who are hungry, and the One who gave us this example of radical sharing.

Interested? Check it out on the 28th. Come with an open heart, and be ready to receive a gift of insight, release and peace. The service starts at 7:30 and lasts an hour, or a bit less.
