We welcome all who may be visiting Glendale City this Easter weekend! We extend a special welcome to Paula Leen, Joy Butler, and Connie Hain. Paula started the orphanage near Mutare, Zimbabwe where she has been involved for 30 years (with Glendale City Church being one of its many sponsors). Joy Butler has, together with her husband, been involved in numerous leadership positions for women’s and justice ministries in countries as far-flung as Papua New Guinea, Australia, Zimbabwe, and Kenya. And Connie Hain, also from Australia, is a wellknown soloist within the denomination, and joins Joy Butler as they attend a global Christian Women’s conference. We wish them all Godspeed in their continued service for God!
Today’s flowers are given in honor of the birthday for Gladys Golay, who turns 104 this weekend!
Join us for Godly Play today at 11:20 a.m. in the Giraffe Room as the mystery of Easter unravels in the culmination of the greatest story of love and sacrifice. For ages 5-12.
