The Glendale City Church family extends a special blessing and welcome to our baptismal candidate today, Mikayla Goulmassian!
We are saddened to report the death of lifelong City Church member, Dr. Robert Marsh, on August 21. Services to be announced; our prayers are with Marguerite as we all mourn his passing.
Please join us after the worship service today for a special potluck in honor of Cherise’s new leadership position. We all know the wonderful ministry she has put in place for City Church these last seven years, and the conference has recognized her time and talent by calling her to a senior pastor position with the Long Beach Church. Be sure to attend this special day—which will be her last here—and give your blessings to our Cherise!
