Connect at Glendive Alliance

Why connect?

Ministry opportunities and Groups for the kids, youth and adults play a vital role in the lives of people at Glendive Alliance. This is where we believe “iron sharpens iron”, as small groups of people bond in friendship, study God’s Word in depth and grow through doing life together.

Children are not just the church of tomorrow but they are the church of today as well. They are our future leaders. They are the ones that we want to proactively pass off the church to. Children were openly welcomed and cherished by Jesus and we want to do the same.

NURSERY – Available 9:00am during Sunday School and 10:30am during the worship service for infants up to children 3 years old.

GAC KIDS – Kids gather downstairs when dismissed from the worship service. There are classes available for 3 year old – kindergarten and 1 st – 5 th graders. We sing, pray, learn and play. This class runs approximately 45 minutes through the sermon.  You can sign up to receive email updates.

SUNDAY SCHOOL – Begins at 9:00am on Sunday mornings. Classes are available for all ages!

AWANA – Awana is a program serving children from age 3 through the sixth grade.  The goal of Awana is to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.  We believe that learning and obeying God’s word will give them a meaningful and rewarding life.  This is accomplished through bible memory, games, achievements, awards and fellowship.  Awana also helps discipline clubbers to work, play and study within their own peer group.

Awana meets Wednesday nights throughout the school year from 6:15 to 7:45 pm.

FAMILY IMPACT GROUPS – Family Impact Groups serve as the foundation of Glendive Alliance Church’s community group ministry. Typically, these groups feature multiple generations, with participants varying in their depth of faith and experience in the church. The goal of these groups is to nurture casual but meaningful connections and encourage the life-long process of whole-life transformation. Family Impact Groups meet regularly and consistently, but at various locations on different days and at various times.

Though not all groups can accommodate children at this time, our Family Impact Groups are designed to encourage entire families to participate. This family-based approach allows families to grow, minister, and be discipled together. It is our hope that as we strengthen our families, we strengthen our church. Therefore, most of our FIGs are open to children. Our children are an important part of our church, and that is a message that needs to ring loud and clear to our church family and our community in general. We probably underestimate the positive impact that can be made on a child who experiences a group of Christians loving each other, caring for one another, learning from each other, praying for each other and carrying one another’s burdens. If these sort of meaningful relationships are what we desire for the adults of our church, why would we not also desire them for our children? The more we can do for and with our children and their families, the stronger we will grow as a church family.

There are numerous ways to connect through women’s ministry.  Here are a few ways…

BIBLE STUDY – Tuesday evenings at 6:30 at the church.

Questions? Contact Brenda Nissley through the church office.

GREAT COMMISSION WOMEN – In response to the Great Commission to “make disciples of all nations” in Matthew 28:19-20, and as an auxiliary ministry of the Christian and Missionary Alliance organized to assist in the advancement of prayer and financial support of the worldwide work of the C&MA, the ambition of Great Commission Women is to enlist women of all generations in Effective Fervent Prayer, encourage an intimate relationship with Christ through intentional Spiritual Formation, and engage in reaching the lost.

We meet monthly, the first Thursday of each month, at 7:00pm.

Questions? Contact Sharon Mitchell through the church office.

THE TABLE – The Table is a concept where Christian women can connect and grow in a friendly, intimate setting. Acts 2:46 says, “And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with gland and generous hearts.” Our goal is to bring women closer together in fellowship and deepen their relationship with God.

Once a month, each group will gather to share a meal, coffee, dessert, or whatever they choose. Each group will have a facilitator and a question(s) to discuss with the group. Yes, answering questions can be intimidating, especially when you do not know everyone around the table closely. As your group’s relationships deepen and strengthen, the questions will become more challenging.

Questions? Contact Cassie Arndt at


BIBLE STUDY – Monday’s at 6:30 at the church. A time to get together as men and study God’s word.

The current study is called, “The Red Letters: A Look at the Words of Jesus”.

Questions? Contact Phil Elmer at
