A Message From Our Minister

Glenview Community Church is a community of faith with a stellar past and a spectacular future.  The congregation was organized in 1897 and in 1941 restructured as a welcoming congregation to members in the community from diverse religious backgrounds.  It was a natural move for the congregation in 1961 to affiliate with the United Church of Christ, (www.ucc.org) a denomination committed to social justice.  With more than forty denominations represented in its membership, we strive to live out the welcoming message, “No matter who you are or where you on life’s journey, you are welcome here.” 

By committing each day to live out our mission statement of learning, loving, and serving in God’s name we come closer to fulfilling our vision of being a strong community of Christian faith that welcomes and engages all people in personal and spiritual growth.  Please explore our website and familiarize yourself with the various ministries in which we are engaged.  Take a look at the calendar and get a sense of the rhythm of the congregation’s life. Reflect on how and where you might connect with us that will contribute to your growth.  Then, take the plunge.  Send an email to a member of staff; pick up the phone and give one of us a call; show up for one of our worship services or one of our scheduled activities.

We are a faith community seeking to be relevant to people living in the 21st century.  Come seek with us, learn with us, and serve with us.
