Our Mission

We seek life transformation in Christ for everyone,

growing together through Worship, Discipleship, and Service.


We do this by committing to-


We gather to remember and celebrate who God is, unifying our personal worship.


We study the scriptures and encourage each other to be open to the activity of God which transforms our lives.


We join with God’s engagement in the world by using our gifts, talents and resources as the Kingdom of God becomes a reality wherever we are.

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Glendora Community Church is service. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. GCC  members are involved in a wide variety of ministries locally and inernationally.

Check our our Get Involved page to see where you might begin serving.


A note from Mike Platter, Senior Pastor of GCC…

We definitely believe that Jesus is the Answer to the spiritual needs of the individual and of the world.  We believe that God wants each local church to be an avenue through which the love and power of Jesus can reach others.  Therefore, as a neighborhood church, we want to be focused on following Jesus and on being useful to Him in loving others.

There’s a story about Jesus which gives an almost perfect picture of what we believe. It is found in the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 6 and begins with verse 44.  He has been preaching to a crowd which had followed him out to a deserted area.  After preaching, he knew they were hungry, but there was no nearby place to get any food for them.  Someone brought him a bit of food, some bread and some fish.  Jesus prayed over the bread and then distributed it to everyone.  Because of the power of His faith and His touch, that small amount of food fed 5,000 people!

We find our church in that story.  We are the person who handed over the little bit of bread and fish – we believe that Jesus wants to use our small amount of talents and gifts to bless others.  We are also sometimes the hungry people in the story – and we have learned to look to Jesus for what we need and to share with one another of our resources.  And, sometimes we are the bread and fish itself – we believe that He will actually use our lives to touch others with His love.

That’s who we are trying to be:  people who follow Jesus, trust Him, and let ourselves be available to love others as His love flows through our lives.

psalm 131 quiet myselfFrom the Sunday Sermon August 28 in Psalm 46 “What Do I Do With Worry?”

Day Three:

And now, the beauty of this Psalm

comes out in the image of the “weaned” child climbing into the mom’s lap.  Why a weaned child?  Because before a child is weaned, it needs its mother for nourishment.  But once a child is weaned, its need for the mother is just because of comfort and love.  The psalmist is saying that life can be so complicated, that sometimes he or she just wants to crawl up in God’s lap.  Not because we need God to give us some “thing” – like food or an answer to a problem.  No, instead, we crawl into God’s lap because we need just to be with God – to feel His comfort, His presence, and to be wrapped in God’s big arms of Love. 

The psalm from our sermon text this past Sunday (Ps 46) and this little song called Ps 131, both remind us that we face worry best by letting the “presence” of the Lord be what we concentrate upon.  Does crawling up in God’s lap solve the problems you face?  No.  But, the presence of the One You Love gives rest and peace, which will lead you to the strength and courage to face the challenges that God allows in your path!
