Who We Are

The Glade Church

About the Church
Here's a brief overview the Glade Church

Many people are anxious when visiting a new church. Maybe the following will help...

Sunday mornings at the Glade Church
We have two identical worship services on Sunday mornings at 9:15 am, and 10:45 am featuring dynamic worship and biblical teaching and preaching (view messages here).

For more information on our worship ministry, including what you can expect in one of our worship settings, be sure and check out our Come/Worship section.

For Directions visit our Map & Directions page.

Drive around to the back of the campus to find designated guest parking near the main entrance.

Info Centers
There are three Info Centers located outside of the main worship center. Men and women from our First Impressions team are trained to help you get answers, find a Sunday morning connect group (or the nearest bathroom), and get information about our various ministries.

Preschoolers, Children, and Students
Loving care is provided for babies through Kindergarten from 8 am through the last worship service. Visit an Info Center for directions to the preschool area. Wee Worship for ages 3-Kindergarten happens Sunday mornings at 10:45 am.

Connect Group time for children grades 1-5 is available at 8 am or 9:15 am and KidzStuff worship is at 10:40 am.

Middle school student groups (6th – 8th grade) meet at 9:15 am in The District. High school student groups (9th – 12th grade) meet at 9:15 am in Annex II. Most students join us for the 10:45 am worship service.

If you have questions, please let us know by using our online contact form - we’d love to help!
