Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name….

Glenelg United Methodist Church is located on a quiet, serene campus in Western Howard County just down the road from Glenelg High School. The congregation is large enough to be able to provide some of the finest music and program offerings of any church in a traditional style, yet small enough for everyone to be involved and needed.

In short, it is a wonderful church home waiting for you.
