Seeking Experienced Carpet Laying Volunteers
Extra carpeting squares are going to be installed in the Pastor offices and reception area. Adhesive has been ordered. If you have some experience in laying carpet and would be willing to give some time to this project, please let Bob Chinnock know. The timing of the project is when volunteers are available. Thank you.
Calling a Call Committee
Now that the Sr. Pastor and Interim Associate Pastor positions are filled, it's time to establish the Call Committee for the Associate Pastor position. The goal is to have a demographically-diverse team. The Constitution calls for 6-8 people for a call committee, so positions are limited and some have already expressed an interest to serve. This is a great opportunity for recently confirmed youth to help position Crown of Glory for the future. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Mary Leopold, mary.l.leopold@gmail.com.
