  • Sunday School

    The children meet in the Sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. Sunday mornings for family worship. Following the young people’s message, the children are escorted to Room 256 on the 2nd Floor of the Education Bldg. for age appropriate classes.

  • Music Programs

    There are three music programs available for children and youth. 

    The Choristers meet Sundays at 9:15 in Room 256. This is the choir for our kinder through 5th grade children. They sing in church at Christmas Eve and other events throughout the year. 

    The Youth Choir is for our singers in grades 6-12. They also meet on Sundays at 9:15 and participate in worship services throughout the year. 

    The Chancel Bells is our bell choir for ringers in grade 6 and older. They meet regularly under the direction of Scott Legget. 

    For more information about any of our music programs please contact Mr. Greg Boyadjian at: gbyadjian@gmail.com

  • Acolytes

    An acolyte is a person who assists the presiding minister/pastor in worship and carries out certain duties, including candle lighting; carrying the processional cross; holding or getting items the pastor needs at baptisms, Holy Communion, and other worship acts. At Glendale First UMC, children and youth serve as acolytes who play an important role in the worshiping life of the church. Children are invited to undergo training and participate once they have started 4th grade.
