Kitchen Essentials Ministry
Cold Mornings - Time for Hot Coffee or Tea!
Minnesota winter mornings are always brisk but a good cup of coffee or tea and a piece of warm buttery toast is a great way to start the day. In February and March, the Kitchen Essentials Ministry is collecting new or gently used coffee pots, teapots, and toasters. 

The Kitchen Essentials Ministry provides Carver County families in need with essential kitchen items. Almost
all of the families we serve are in need of coffee pots, teapots, and toasters. We also continue to accept donations of other kitchen items. Donations can be placed in the alcove behind the kitchen at Crown of Glory. 

If you have any questions about this ministry, please contact Jodi at (952) 567-4397 or Sue at (612) 735-2616.

Thank you for your support of the Kitchen Essentials Ministry.
                              
New Year, New Us!
As we move into 2019, two of our ministry teams, the Kitchen Planning Team and the Interior Decor Team, are looking to "re-assemble" and develop some plans - both short and long-term - for the new year.  

  • The Kitchen Planning Team will look at the general needs of the kitchen, functionality, procedures, etc. Do we have the right equipment, is the workflow efficient and practical, etc. (No cooking required!)
  • The Interior Decor Team works to promote that warm and welcoming feeling for all who enter our doors. The team will work to make sure that our spaces are functional and meet the needs of all who use our facilities.

If you're interested in sharing your ideas and talents with either of these groups, brainstorming meetings have been set:

·   Kitchen Planning Team - Wednesday, February 6th at 6:15 p.m.
· Interior   Decor Team - Wednesday, February 13th at 6:15 p.m.

Not looking for another huge commitment? These groups would plan to meet one or two times over the next few months, and then quarterly going forward. Questions, please contact, Julie Youngman for The Kitchen Planning Team and Pastor Kristie for The Interior Décor Team.
