Glenn offers a variety of Sunday morning classes to help you connect with others and learn more about your faith. Not sure which class is right for you? Contact Rev. Susan Pinson for more information on Sunday School classes, Small Groups, or other Bible studies. Visit our Children’s page for more information on classes for kids.

And before Sunday School begins, be sure to stop by Holy Grounds Cafe in the Ward Fellowship Hall for a light breakfast, coffee, and fellowship.
