Share About Glenwood on Social Media

Spread the word! When you “like” a post from Glenwood on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, would you help us by sharing it as well? Reaching people virtually is a significant way for us to be Kingdom-minded and engage our neighbors. Speaking of social media…Have you subscribed to our YouTube worship channel? You can do so here:

Lunch Buddies

We have an opportunity to serve the school in our community, right around the corner, at Rice Elementary. Volunteers are needed each day from 10:25 a.m.–12:50 p.m. to assist during the lunch period for each group of students. You will have a chance to interact with some great kids and teachers and really bless the faculty and staff at Rice. For more information, contact Stefanie Albright (see Family News email for contact information).

World Bible School

Through World Bible School, we have an incredible opportunity to share Jesus with others from the other side of the world, and as near as prisoners in the Texas Dept. of Corrections near Palestine, TX.

Pick Up and Drop Off for Kingdom Kids

For the safety of our children, its crucial to remember that we have a very important protocol which we must follow for dropping off and picking up kids for children’s worship. With the craziness of COVID, and the slow resumption of “normal” activities, we want to refresh everyone on this important procedure:

  • Children will be released from worship prior to the sermon. 
  • Parents must escort children to Children’s Worship and pick them up during the last song of the service. 
  • Please note that children will not be released to individuals other than parents/legal guardians or parent-appointed adults.

How Can We Help?

Hey folks! We’ve been working hard to compile a list of ways that we can be of help to each other and our community. It has been such a blessing to see some of the ways you all are encouraging each other and sharing helpful resources on social media. We can’t keep up with them all, but if you will give us a heads-up, we’ll be happy to share some of them via Glenwood channels.
