We take seriously God’s call upon our lives to be a people of faith and prayer. Every week on Wednesdays a group called the “Gatekeepers” gathers in the sanctuary to pray for the needs of our community of faith and the world. Emergency prayer needs are circulated and lifted up in prayer almost daily through the members of our prayer circle and e-mail prayer partners of the Prayer Ministry of Glen Leven. We are developing as a church the wonderful reputation as a “house of prayer.”
The people of the community of faith of Glen Leven have numerous opportunities for spiritual development and Christian nurture through our small groups, Women’s Circles, and Men’s Fellowship that meet on Sunday mornings and other days during the week.
Through two separate Bible Studies offered each week on Sunday afternoons and Wednesday mornings, one is offered the opportunity to look closely at the Scriptures and discuss the relevance and significance of God’s word in and for our lives.
We continue to offer opportunities for spiritual growth for our Children and Youth through Sunday small groups, the "Levenites" youth group, Vacation Bible School, confirmation classes, Children’s Guide to Worship classes, Church pageants, overnight camp outs, and other seasonal activities.
Seeking to provide ministry and encouragement to our senior members, Glen Leven has a Senior Ministry called the “Live Wires.” This group offers opportunities for our over fifty-five age group to gather for activities, programs, excursions, and fellowship.
Our congregation exercises the message of the parable of the Good Samaritan by assisting individuals in our surrounding community, contributing to the payment of their utilities through our Good Samaritan Ministry. This ministry enables those who have special needs to maintain their electric, gas, or water utilities during emergency situations.
Listed above are most of the ministries that are taking place through our efforts to be faithful to our calls to glorify God. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we seek to serve God as we serve the church and world around us. New and expanded opportunities for ministry and service to God continue to present themselves as we discern God’s will for us as God’s people.
