Just a phase

From the time a child is born to the time they turn 18 years old, there are 940 weeks.

That's 940 chances for their family and community to make a difference in their lives.

If the church is going to make a difference in the next generation, we have to make the most of every one of those 940 chances.

That may seem like a lot, but it goes by faster than you think.

No matter how old the children in your life may be, this is just a phase, so don't miss it.

The Struggle is real

In a world that's increasingly driven by social media, we can often struggle to connect with the people around us.

How do we grow our faith and work to connect personally with others in a tech-driven world?

Throughout this series, we talk about how the Bible helps us address these struggles, because as we all know, the struggle is real.

EASTER 2018

Easter is a time of celebration in the church as we look back at the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ!

This one event is the source of our hope and our joy, and changed the course of human history.

Jesus overcame the grave, He overcame sin, and we get to spend eternity with Him because of His love for us!

Next Steps

Here at Glendale Christian Church, we believe that everyone has a "next best step" to take in following Jesus.

That step may be coming to church for the first time, or the first time in a long time.

That step may be confessing the sin in your life and following Jesus for the first time.

That step may be baptism, or re-committing your life to God, or finding new ways to grow closer to Him through Bible study and prayer.

Whatever it may be, ask yourself: what's my next best step?

Resolve

What does it mean to simply follow Jesus?

Throughout this series, we'll look at what it means when we resolve to follow Jesus.

New year/New you

Entering the New Year, the word that is most often on our minds is "resolution."

We commit ourselves to eating better, working out more, learning something new- goals we often forget by March.

But how do we work on growing the most important part of our lives - our relationship with Jesus?

Jesus calls us to more than a resolution. He calls us to surrender.

Where's Your Presence?

The Christmas season is a time for family, music, parties, big meals, and especially PRESENTS.

Most importantly, Christmas is for reflecting on the birth of Jesus Christ, 

and that means focusing not on PRESENTS, but rather on Jesus' PRESENCE.

Throughout this series, we will focus on how the presence of Jesus in our lives fundamentally changes how we should live.

Grace is greater

We are excited to welcome our new Senior Minister, Adam Hale, into the Glendale Christian family!

In his first series, Adam will be sharing messages about the power of grace.

We often talk about grace in church, without always addressing what makes grace truly important.

This series is a fresh look at the meaning, purpose, and value of God's grace in our lives.

Fall 2017

As we enter the fall, we will continue hearing messages from our ministry staff.

Each week will be a new topic, but each message will share one truth: Jesus wins.

Jesus wins over sin in our lives through the cross. Jesus wins over death through the resurrection. 

And Jesus wins our hearts, if we open ourselves up to His grace, and to His plan for our lives.

Join us as we learn each week about the power and grace of Jesus, and how He is working to shape your life for good.

Summer 2017

Throughout the summer, we will be hearing messages from our entire ministry staff, as well as a few guest speakers.

Each week will be a new topic, but each message will share one truth: Jesus wins.

Jesus wins over sin in our lives through the cross. Jesus wins over death through the resurrection. 

And Jesus wins our hearts, if we open ourselves up to His grace, and to His plan for our lives.

Join us as we learn each week about the power and grace of Jesus, and how He is working to shape your life for good.
