Celebrating 50 Years Together As a Congregation

Last Sunday Crown of Glory members and guests came together for our final 50th anniversary event. Pastor Paul Oman, a renowned artist, painted a 7' x 5' mural of Noah's Ark during a meditative service that included specially selected music, scripture, and words of wisdom.

Come and see this very special mural, "God's Promise," which will be hung in church for all to enjoy and be reminded of God's promise of His love for us. We encourage you to invite friends and family to visit CoG to see this beautiful mural anytime.

You can view this service (and past services) here. Watch for more info soon on how you can order a printed copy of the mural.
