We gathered for our 5th Parent Connection of the 2016-17 season on March 12th. We focused primarily on Ephesians 6:1-4, discussing how God calls us to love our children and how to engage their hearts through discipline and show them the same grace God shows us.

Dear Glenwood Community Church Family,

We are deeply grateful for the 63 years you have been the church home to our mother.  In 1954 it was this body that was the first to welcome her as a new bride to the community, and it was this group of brothers and sisters who gathered to celebrate her arrival in her heavenly home.  She was grateful for the love and friendship here and the opportunities to serve and pray.

work books, shovel, broom, titus

Consistent devotion to Jesus and to the needs of others displays the beauty of God’s offer of grace.  How do we pursue that devotion while wisely engaging a culture that so ardently rejects Jesus?   The Apostle Paul provides an answer in his letter to Titus. 

A new equipping class on Titus begins Sunday, March 5.  Led by Dr. Barry Davis and Matthew Jensen, 10:45 a.m. in Room 314.

Team members with Haitian children

Glenwood’s outreach strategy is to be involved in sending those called to serve on a long term basis, to assist the development of national missionaries and leaders and to send short term Global Outreach (GO) Teams to these areas. Glenwood has been involved in Haiti for many years and is eager to support ministry in any number of ways.  A team of ten have gone to Port-au-Prince this last week to help in the construction of two projects, a home near STEP and the ongoing construction of a new academic building at STEP itself.  Check back for team updates as we receive them.

guys in the truck

Hello once again!

The guys woke up early to play basketball with a bunch of Haitians at a nearby school. That was great. Basketball is an American sport so we had our honor to defend! Unfortunately, we got creamed. It was fun playing a competitive game with them though. Meanwhile, Lauren convinced Carlie to Zumba with her.

Gathering for the key ceremony


The house was finished today. It went surprisingly quick and looks great! 

Wawa and some others from STEP performed the 'Key Ceremony' for the family. There was a toast, some memorable and sweet words were said, and all the girls were crying. It was truly amazing to watch. This family had no hope of ever building a real house. They spend all they have to feed and educate their 5 daughters. This house, small and cramped by our standards, is a monument to the way God provides for His children.

Team members with Haitian students after soccer


Today, we laid the concrete floor for the house. We passed the concrete in buckets for a few hours. After we finished, the only thing left is to put the roof on! This building has gone up very quickly!
