Worship

Our congregation has four different weekly worship gatherings designed to connect people to God, to each other and to great spiritual truths both old and new. Especially in our two English gatherings, we emphasize the ongoing work of God in the world. This focus invites us to challenge our personal belief systems; grows us in our capacity to show compassion and grace to others; and calls us to actively join God in the work of ending suffering, breaking down walls of division and working with our community to bring peace and healing to all people.

View our Gatherings page for more information.

Get connected

While having people attend one of our worships is wonderful, we want Glendale City Church to be more than just the place you visit on Saturday. We want this to be Your Church. The best way to connect is to join one of the groups that meets on our campus. If you have kids, connect with other families before, during, or after City Kids Worship. If you like group discussion, join one of the adult groups that meets at 9:30 am. Another great way to meet people is by getting involved in one of our ministries. Joining our greeter team, helping the deacons take care of odds and ends around campus, and assisting our children’s staff are great ways to make new friends.

Our pastoral staff is also excited to meet you over lunch or coffee to get better acquainted and help you find your place at Glendale City Church. Contact them today!

Each Saturday beginning at 10:45 a.m., Glendale City Church provides great experiences for children and teens.  In City Kids Worship, children from birth through sixth grade sing songs, hear stories, learn about God and make crafts that remind them of what they learned. Parents can pick up their kids at the conclusion of adult worship. At Open Door Teen Cafe, youth in grades 7-12 get together to talk about real life and spirituality. At 11:30, teens are dismissed to the sanctuary for the second half of adult worship. See more details on our Gatherings page.

We post each Saturday’s Morning English Worship video on our website and on our YouTube channel by the following Wednesday. Audio podcasts of the sermon are uploaded as well.

For morning worship (English, Armenian, and Romanian), most people wear business attire. In the afternoon, at Urban Liturgy, people tend to dress casually. But there is no dress code. Wear what’s comfortable for you

Glendale City Church is a Christian church that is part of the global Seventh-day Adventist denomination. We hold many beliefs in common with other Christian churches. The church name highlights two beliefs that have been historically important to our denomination: the keeping of Saturday, the seventh day of the week, as a day of rest, also known as Sabbath; and the conviction that the Christian belief in a future heaven is something that is coming quickly, and will, ultimately, be on earth. Just as we believe Jesus changed the world with his first coming, or advent, over 2000 years ago, we believe Jesus has another advent in store that will bring an end to evil and suffering and usher in the beginning of a new world full of love and peace.
