WELCOME TO GLENKIRK CHURCH
Glenkirk Church is a worshipping community, inviting everyone to join in the journey of becoming fully devoted followers of Christ, loving God and His world. No one of us has “arrived.” As a church, everything we hope to be revolves around these things—knowing Him, serving Him, finding life in Him, following Him.
We are a people of the Book—a biblically based church constantly seeking understanding and direction in the scriptures which point to and reveal who Jesus was and is.
Are you seeking answers to your questions about Christianity and Glenkirk’s beliefs? Do you want to be baptized or have your child baptized? Interested in joining Glenkirk? Join us for our next BELONG class, Wednesday evenings April 21 – May 12.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
GOD – We believe in one God—God the Father, Jesus the Son, and The Holy Spirit—the infinite Creator of the universe who is both loving and just.
JESUS CHRIST – We believe in Jesus, fully human and fully divine, our Lord and Savior. He lived a life without fault to model for us the life that God wants for us, died on the cross for our sins, and rose from the dead. Through him, we enter into God’s kingdom, which begins in our lives now and stretches into eternity.
THE HOLY SPIRIT – We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in all believers to empower us with spiritual gifts and to bring about the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. The Holy Spirit comforts, encourages, and teaches us on our journey with God.
SCRIPTURE – We believe that the Bible is the holy Word of God. It corrects, encourages, and inspires us, teaching us the essential truths of faith and life. We read it in humility, with faith seeking understanding, and under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
THE CHURCH – We believe that the church is an oasis for the lost and lonely, a training ground for those seeking to follow Jesus, and a place of worship. The church is not a gathering of the perfect; it is a community of people on a journey together, asking who God is, becoming who he means us to be, and creating his kingdom on earth.
MINISTRY – We believe that God calls every believer to ministry. God gives each of us specific gifts and calls us to certain places in which to use them. Ministry is not the work of professionals; it is the work of everyone who follows Jesus. In ministry, we give our lives away to love and serve God and other people throughout the world.
Glenkirk Church is part of the Evangelical Covenant Order of Presbyterians.
MINISTRIES AND INVOLVEMENT
We strive to impact the lives of others with God’s love through local, national, and international efforts. We send missionaries and mission teams to Africa, the Middle East, South America, Central America, Native American reservations, Canada, Mexico, and more. These efforts are for the whole person in areas such as sharing the good news about Jesus and providing food, shelter, clothing, emotional support, counseling and medical care. We have trained counselors here locally who are equipped to meet with people seeking this emotional support, healing, guidance, and recovery.
During January, Glenkirk hosts 200 guests who sleep under our roof as we provide meals, showers, clothes, and other needs. Some years ago, we started a pantry that now feeds hundreds of people in the local area each week.
Due to the conditions of COVID-19, this ministry will be on break until further notice. Please go to www.GlenkirkChurch.org/news for new information.

GriefShare is a caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving experience alone.
Support and Recovery groups are offered because Glenkirk cares about the people in our community. These ongoing support groups are available year round to help individuals cope with the many challenges in their lives.
Glenkirk’s Lay Counseling provides trained Christian helpers for people who desire paraprofessional level counseling. We seek to serve people at Glenkirk Church and in our community who have specific needs in times of conflict or crisis.
Premarital and Marital counseling is done by Glenkirk counselors who are specifically trained to do this using Life Innovation’s Prepare and Enrich assessment. This assessment is done online and provides information on strengths and possible growth areas for couples. Feedback from a counselor is done over a 6-8 week period, meeting once a week.
Compassionate Care is designed to meet the physical, emotional, and mental needs of people as a way of sharing Christ’s love.
Worship is a celebration at Glenkirk that feeds your soul, enriches your mind, and allows you to experience God.
Come and join us at Glenkirk this weekend for one of our worship services at 9:00am, 10:45am, and 5:00pm. Celebrate with us and experience God! Dress is casual at all Glenkirk worship services.
We are creating God’s kingdom on earth as we reach out to our local and global communities through acts of service and Christian mission that are rooted in love for God and for others.
Session is what we call the body of Elders who are responsible for the mission and government of the church. Elders are to pray for and work for the growth of all members, and equip for ministry through personal and pastoral care. Our Deacons are the caregiving front line of our congregation. They are responsible for hospital visitation, care for shut-ins, prayer ministry, funeral arrangements, and hospitality.
Due to the conditions of COVID-19, many of the following ministries will be on break until further notice. Please go to www.GlenkirkChurch.org/news for new information.
In addition to our worship services, we also offer adult classes for further learning and exploration of topics.
