Operation Christmas Child - Pick Up A Shoebox This Weekend
The amazing journey of a Shoebox Gift begins with you and results in evangelism, discipleship, and multiplication. The world's largest Christmas project of its kind, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Children and worldwide communities who receive a box hear "The Good Word" and are introduced Jesus. Packing ideas and instructions will be included. Boxes will be due back near the end of October. Look for the display at church.
Carpet installation to begin September 25. The installation process will take 3-4 days. The Flooring Committee has selected options for the Sun Hall, samples will be in the church next week for everyone to look at.

Major Gift Ensures New Carpeting
With our gratitude and deepest appreciation Crown of Glory is excited to announce that a generous donation has been gifted to our Flooring Fund . This gift will allow us to finish the carpeting around the church gathering spaces and the hallways!

And a Challenge Gift for Congregation Members
This flooring gift has an additional “Challenge Gift” for our congregation’s action. Our challenge is to raise an additional $25,000 by end of year to complete all of our flooring needs. In response, if the goal is met, the family will make an additional stock gift to Crown of Glory estimated at $15,000 in early 2019!

Gifts have already started coming in - thank you. Help us reach our challenge goal of $25,000!
