Loving God, Loving Neighbor
When and Where
Services at Glenn have historically featured excellence in preaching and in choral and instrumental music. Our Sunday schedule includes services at 8:30 in The Little Chapel, at 11:00 in the Sanctuary, and at 5:05 in the Fellowship Hall. The same pastor usually preaches the same sermon at both morning services, with the evening service often offering a different message from a variety of preachers. Various choirs and musicians provide the music.
The 8:30 service in The Little Chapel is a smaller, less formal service for early risers. A nursery is available for children up to four years old. The chapel service feels like the gathering of a close-knit family of believers.
While larger and more formal, the 11:00 service in the sanctuary remains warm and friendly. This service primarily uses traditional music, liturgy, prayers, and creeds. It features our excellent chancel choir and the musical gifts of Emory University organist Dr. Timothy Albrecht. The service includes a “children’s sermon,” and childcare is provided for children up to four years old.
The Gathering at 5:05 is a casual and creative service of worship that incorporates the many gifts and talents of the Glenn Memorial and Emory community. This service also uses and celebrates the wide range of musical and liturgical styles that come from all over the world and throughout the history of the Christian tradition. Childcare is provided for children up to four years old.
We celebrate communion at both morning services on the first Sunday of each month, and on special occasions such as Christmas Eve and Maundy Thursday. The Gathering service celebrates communion weekly. United Methodists celebrate the Lord’s Supper with an open table; all are welcome to receive communion with us.
Kids in Worship Reminders
For your info and to share with visitors: Childcare in the Church School Building is provided for children 6 weeks old through Kindergarten during our 8:30 am and 11:00 am Sunday Worship. Pre-K & Kindergarten children now join us in 11:00 am worship for the opening hymn and Children's Sermon. They return to Extended Care with childcare workers and are signed out as usual after the service ends. A Comfort Room is now available in the Bride's Room on the bottom floor (the back stairwell under the balcony) with a changing table, rocking chair, single restroom, and comforting space.
