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.
Beginning May 2021, we will be worshipping inside the Sanctuary at 9:00am with a max capacity of 200 people. At 10:45am we will be worshipping outdoors on the patio. During the 9:00am indoor service, we will also be broadcasting the service on our LED screen outdoors if you prefer to join us outside. All in person services will be adhering to current protocols and we ask that you keep social distance from other households and keep your face mask on while on campus (indoors and outdoors).
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.
Director of Children’s Ministries, Amber Flores, has been preparing our campus site and the hearts of our leaders to re-open Sunday School. We are excited to be back in person with our kids as we dive in to God’s word together! Children will need to pre-register for Sunday School each week. First time attenders will also need to complete the Health and Safety Waiver. This will be kept on-file for each time that the child attends afterward. Have some questions? Check out our FAQ sheet for Sunday School Reopening!
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND SUNDAY SCHOOL EACH WEEK.

As a church we can become active responders to the needs around us.
Adult Small Groups
As we near the close of one of the most turbulent political campaign cycles in recent history, I encourage you to take time to pray this week for next week’s election and for our nation. Recently I was reminded of something John Wesley wrote in his journal in 1774 during a particularly contentious election cycle in 18th century England. Wesley urged followers of Jesus to each vote for the person they deemed most worthy, to each refrain from speaking evil about the people they did not vote for, and to each take care that their spirit was not sharp toward those who voted differently. That’s still pretty good advice more than 246 years later. This is a great opportunity to “clothe ourselves with love, which binds every other virtue together in perfect unity” (Colossians 3:14).
Even though we are physically apart during this time, we want to stay connected! We want to pray for you. Just let us know how. You can submit prayer requests and schedule a phone call or video chat with a pastor or deacon to pray with you. Also consider signing up for a time slot for our prayer chain. You can sign up for a slot at www.glenkirkchurch.org/pray and we will send out prayer prompts for you to use.
To contact our prayer team or submit a prayer request, CLICK HERE or send an email to Pray@GlenkirkChurch.org.
OUTREACH & WAYS TO HELP
If you have practical needs we can meet during this time, we are mobilizing our deacon ministry to this end. If you are need of assistance, please contact your deacon using your Glenkirk Church profile on Church Community Builder (CCB) or you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if you have specific prayer requests, you can submit them to this email address, and we will get them to our prayer team. We want to support you during this time in every way we can.
