Recreation & Exercise
Glenn Recreation ministries strives to provide a fun and safe space for children, youth, and adults to learn basics skills, teamwork, and respect for oneself and others. Through our sports offerings, we focus on sportsmanship and fun in a family friendly environment. And with our exercise classes, we offer opportunities for the care and well-being of our bodies.
We welcome you into our newly renovated space - the Youth and Activities Building (YAAB) - complete with new wood floors, an elevator, additional bathrooms and shower facilities, and more!

We'll also have a short Safe Sanctuary training during this time. To comply with our safety policies, all adult volunteers must be Safe Sanctuary trained and have a background check on file.
It is of utmost importance to always have two adults (high school assistants are not considered adults, even if they are 18) in the building at all times. Coaches, we are incredibly grateful for your time and effort to teach, mentor, and keep our kids safe. If you cannot make a practice, please coordinate with another parent or our staff to ensure that an adult is with your team. For online options to become safe sanctuary trained, please email Rev. Blair Setnor. Fill out the background check form and return to Rev. Blair Setnor via email or mail at 1660 N. Decatur Rd NE, 30307.
