AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE ~ POSTPONED

LIFELINE SCREENING ~ FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 2021
On Friday, October 8th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Life Line Screening, the nation’s leading provider of preventive health screenings, will offer affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings at Crown of Life Lutheran Church. A package of five screenings to identify risk for stroke, heart disease and other chronic conditions will be offered: *Carotid artery ultrasound to identify plaque buildup in the carotid arteries, a major risk factor for stroke. *Abdominal aortic aneurysm ultrasound to identify presence of an enlargement in the largest blood vessel in the body. *An EKG to identify the presence of atrial fibrillation, which increases the risk for stroke. *Ultrasound of the lower legs to look for plaque buildup known as peripheral artery disease. *Ultrasound of the shin bone to identify risk for osteoporosis. These 5 vital screenings are offered for only $149 and take 60-90 minutes to complete. If you register today, you will receive a $10 discount.

CHILDREN'S CHURCH ~ SECOND SUNDAY EVERY MONTH
Starting in September, Crown of Life is excited to offer once-a-month Children's Church for children ages 3-10 during the 10:30 a.m. service. Mrs. Piasecki will take the children to the lower level during Pastor Terry's sermon. She will share a story, activity, and small snack before returning them to parents/grandparents after Pastor's sermon. At this point, we are only offering this on the second Sunday of each month, so our first Children's Church will be September 12th, during the 10:30 a.m. service. Mark your calendars! If you would like to volunteer as a helper in order to offer this opportunity more than once a month, please contact Allison Piasecki or Pastor Terry. Click here for the Facebook Kick-Off Event
BROOKSIE WAY WATER STATION ~ SEPTEMBER 26, 2021
WATER STATION... We are excited to serve as a water station again this year for The Brooksie Way Half Marathon. Brooksie Way provides the supplies needed, but we provide the manpower to prep, pour, and pass out cups of water, then clean up afterwards. Please sign up to help on September 26th, starting at 7:30 a.m. Snacks and refreshments will be provided to volunteers.

TRAFFIC/PARKING... Once the marathon starts, all roads contained by the course will be blocked off. During the marathon, you can only reach Crown of Life from the North side on Adams Road and from the West side on Dutton Road. Due to the road block for the race, if you want to utilize the Crown of Life parking lot, you will need to arrive before 7:30 a.m. and will not be able to leave until after 11:30 a.m.
FAMILY FRIENDLY... If you have little ones, you can also help! By the time the runners arrive, they are pretty tired and could sure use a boost. As a family, consider decorating signs with encouraging words, clap as they pass, and cheer them on, giving them extra energy to finish the last leg of the race. No sign-up necessary to encourage the runners, just show up and cheer them on!
WORSHIP... Please note, for the safety of the runners, we will not host a worship service on this day. Stay tuned to our social media and website for a Christian message by Pastor Terry.
QUESTIONS... See Melissa or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
LIVESTREAMING ~ SUNDAYS 9:00 AM & 10:30 AM
We're excited to introduce livestreaming! We prefer seeing everyone's beautiful faces, of course, but sometimes circumstances may not allow you to attend worship every Sunday. If you cannot make it to church, click here to visit our FACEBOOK PAGE as we livestream both worship services at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. This is a great option for our snow birds, those who travel during the summer, or those who have a compromised immune system.
ONLINE GIVING NOW AVAILABLE!
Between demanding family and work schedules or just trying to get out the door for church on time, it can be a challenge to tithe on a regular basis as God calls us to do. For many of us, the church is the last place that we are still using a checkbook or cash. Crown of Life is excited to offer online giving for families to easily give one-time, as well as weekly or monthly gifts. Simply make a secure donation by CLICKING HERE. You can choose to set up giving weekly or monthly. It's as easy as online shopping or banking. Just follow the simple instructions. Crown of Life is working through Giving Plus, a Vanco Faith service organization, which uses a safe and secure platform.
WEEKDAY HOLY COMMUNION ~ BY APPOINTMENT
Holy Communion during the week is offered by appointment. If you would like to schedule an appointment, call 248-652-7720 or email email@example.com
