Glen Ellen Church to Celebrate 116 Years


Glen Ellen Community Church

Sunday August 15th 2010 - 10:00am to

On August 15th, Glen Ellen Community Church will celebrate 116 years of ministry in the Sonoma Valley. Formed in 1894 by believers desiring that there be a Christian presence in the Glen, community members came together to make plans on forming a community church. With the help of several local leaders, the church building was constructed on land donated by Dr. Charles O’Donnell, on the corner of O’Donnell Lane and Henno Road in 1895. Records indicate that after a construction timeline of two months, Glen Ellen Community Church was ready to hold regular Sunday services with an initial membership of 14 people.

“We enjoy coming together and reliving the history of Glen Ellen Community Church,” Pastor Jim Hill said recently. “It is hard to imagine that this church was built for less than $2,500 in materials, and $160 in labor.” For those wishing to celebrate 116 years of ministry in Glen Ellen, the community church will be celebrating in their 10 a.m. services on Sunday, Aug. 15. Afterward, there will be a pot luck luncheon and a cake will be served in celebration of the anniversary. Everyone is invited to join in the festivities. Glen Ellen Community Church is located at 5311 O’Donnell Lane in Glen Ellen. For more information, please call the church at 996-1479.
