Girl Scout Cookie Donations
Girl Scout Troop #18471 recently donated 318 boxes of cookies to Bountiful Basket Food Shelf and His House Foundation ! Thank you for your generosity scouts!
SPARK lesson for this week is about Early Believers in the resurrection! Acts 2:42-47 and 4:32-37. They were great at sharing food, clothing, money, their homes, and their faith! Generosity was contagious and the church family grew! 
Connect News
Gather at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday for this week’s lesson: New Creation! By faith, we know the end of the story. There will be an end of suffering and sorrow. God is constantly renewing all things, breathing life into new situations. Ponder what you have enjoyed about sheltering in place? What do you want to hold onto from your experience during the pandemic?  
VBS 2020 Postponed
VBS is a wonderful tradition at Crown of Glory that we have been looking forward to sharing with all of you. Our leadership has been in prayerful conversation and have decided that out of concern for our children and all who will participate in VBS, we will postpone VBS until a later date. We may need to find or create new ways to share VBS with you this year. We will update you to unfolding plans, and hope that you will contact Gretchen with concerns and prayer needs so that we might stay in contact with you. We will get through this. We look forward to the time when we can gather together to celebrate VBS! God keep you in good health and good spirits!
