We at Glendale UMC want you to know that no matter: Where you’ve come from or where you are going; what you believe or what you may doubt; what you are feeling or just not feeling; what you have or don’t have; and no matter whom you love – all of who you are is welcomed into this community of faith by a God who loves you and knows you by name.
We believe every person is of sacred worth and created in God’s image. We believe that Jesus is our Savior and that he has taught us how to receive and share love, grace, and mercy. We therefore commit to cultivate inclusive love and intentional hospitality with persons of every race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, faith story, education, physical or mental ability, economic status, or political perspective. We consider our diversity to be a gift from God that strengthens us to worship, learn, and serve in Christ’s name.
