Global Impact Conference 2013
GLOBAL IMPACT CONFERENCE - February 24-March 3
Please mark your calendar and be in prayer for our upcoming Global Impact Conference and visiting missionaries. Joining us will be George & Marcy Romeos, Britton & Brooks Sharp, Viktor & Gai Repasky, Greg & Suzanne Pitts, and we'll introduce you to our newest missionaries, Mark & Leslie Awabdy.
GLOBAL GIVING PROJECT
The Cosmovision Center has served as a beacon of light for the gospel not only in its home of Athens, Greece, but also all over the region. It's unique gospel mission has attracted great use among the Greek churches as well as a constant flow of many different international groups. A well-used equipping facility necessitates constant maintenance and compliance with codes. In addition to the great demand for such a facility, the dire socio-economic situation in Greece places a heavy strain on meeting the center's needs.
How can you help?
The center ministers to thousands of people each year. Our designated offerings to the Global Giving Project 2013 will go towards the needs of the CVC:
• Water wasting biological central system mandatory upgrade
• Electrical system, hot water system and floor tiles of new cabins
• Furniture and equipment of our cafeteria next to the soccer fields
MISSIONARY "WISH LIST" ITEMS
We are collecting $25 gift cards from area retailers for items our partners can't get overseas or are unable to afford. Please join us in blessing our visiting missionaries from around the world.
