Update on Worship at Glenkirk Church

Sermon Series “Course Corrections” | May 9 – August 1

Life is a series of twists and turns as we navigate the terrain of our ever-changing circumstances.  When we make missteps or start to lose our way, God invites us to make course corrections to get back on his path.  On May 9, 2021, Glenkirk will begin a journey through the 12 Minor Prophets of the Old Testament.  Each week we will look at the essential theme of one Minor Prophet and listen for how God is speaking to us about course corrections.

10:45 am | Indoor & Outdoor In Person, Live Online on YouTube and Facebook 

Because of rising cases of COVID19 in our county, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has issued a new public health order requiring face masks in all public indoor settings beginning July 18. It applies to everyone regardless of their vaccination status.  You can read this order for yourself HERE.  You can see exceptions to this mask mandate HERE. We are asking that everyone who does not meet the LA County criteria for an exception to wear a face mask when participating in any indoor setting at Glenkirk. This includes our indoor worship services, offices, and classrooms. This also includes VBS. 

We will be worshipping inside the Sanctuary at 9:00am and 10:45am, as well as outside with a live broadcast on the patio with our LED screen. Services are also available through live stream online at YouTube.com/GlenkirkChurch. 

For those wishing to attend our outdoor services, we encourage you to bring plenty of water, your own shade, and your own chair to sit in. If you have been sick, we ask that you continue worshipping from home.

In order to make giving easier than ever, we are moving to a new online giving platform call Pushpay.  The new system is fully integrated with our CCB system and is even more safe and secure. Text the word GLENKIRK to 833-245-5318 to get started.
