  • 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.

  • Choristers

    The Choristers is open to children in Kindergarten through 5th grade. The Youth Choir is available for those in 6th grade through 12th grade.   Singers engage in choral experiences that prepare them to participate in and lead worship.  The choirs share an anthem in the worship service approximately once a month.  Rehearsals are Sundays at 9:15am to 10:15am in room 256. Greg Boyadjian, Choristers'  and Youth Choir director, has been teaching instrumental music and chorus for the Glendale Unified School District for 15 years.  He is a graduate of CSUN with a Bachelors Degree in Music Educational Administration.  Contact Mr 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.
