New Building Signs
Crown of Glory is blessed to have our new building signs installed at the North and West entrances! In addition to the building signs, there are two new window signs located at the North entrance and the Pre-School entrance. Finally, a memorial plaque was also installed at the main entrance of the church. These new signs were given in loving memory of Stacey Ryan, our sister in Christ. We offer a special thanks to Tom Ryan, Stacy’s husband and the entire Ryan family for these gifts. May these signs embolden our memory of Stacy and welcome all to the building.
Switching to Electronic Giving Soon?
Help us reduce the cost of offering envelopes in 2020 by moving to electronic giving. If you would like to have your name removed from the offering envelope mailing list because you send your offerings in other ways, please email Kellie Bokusky by end of day on January 23, 2020. 
A popular way to give electronically is through Give + Text. Make one-time or recurring offerings by simply sending a text to 833-497-3991. It’s a convenient solution when you can’t attend services or don’t have cash or checks with you. 

We also offer Simply Giving. Please contact Ashley Pederson to request a form to setup an account.

Friendly reminder that all 2019 offerings must be received in the church office or postmarked no later than December 31, 2019.
Thank You!
