On Saturday, June 2nd, men of Glenwood enjoyed a fantastic breakfast made by Brian Ford and his team of cooks (food engineers, really, when we're talking about that much food tasting that good).  We then heard from Phil Long and Justin Swift.  Phil shared with us 3 of his spoken word poems which emphasized the importance of pointing other people to Jesus rather than ourselves.  Justin talked about the nature of leadership and what it means that Jesus leads us -- we lead others best when we are following Him.

All proceeds will go to support Vision d’Antioche.

How can a biblical worldview impact your perspective on iPhones, fossils, and forms of government?  Does how we define truth and reality really change how we talk at a neighbor's BBQ?  Does our understanding of the Trinity and God's Image affect what we think of the annoying guy in front of us at the check out line?

Praise God that the cafeteria portion of the Merger Building Project was completed in October 2013! What a blessing this extra space will be for the school in Merger.  The next step will be to begin on the kindergarten buildings of the school and funds will be needed for this project.   If you would like to contribute to the construction costs, please make your check payable to Glenwood Community Church and designate it Merger Building Fund.
