The Story

The Glory of God Anglican Church is a bible centered church serving the needs of the community in Cocoa, Florida.  We have a small congregation that is big in giving.  The Glory of God Tuesday Food Ministry serves over 100 families weekly. Our Nursing Home Ministry goes to homes of people who cannot attend worship services and 2 local nursing homes to provide worship services with reading of scriptures and Holy Eucharist a listening ear and a gentle touch.  During the summer months we have community movie nights where folks from the food pantry come for popcorn, ice cream and wholesome fun.  We offer not only physical food and entertainment but also spiritual food and enlightenment to the needy.  

We have global outreach and partner with Christian Rural Ministry in Uganda - providing prayers and support for our brothers and sisters in Africa.  

Our congregation is an elderly congregation full of the Holy Spirit.  Our campus grounds and buildings have been under major restoration for five years and, with God's help, great progress has been made.  We have been repairing our roofs while saving towards getting much needed new roofs.   Our sanctuary has a steep slope and a corner that has some damage.  We have a flat roof that has issues and leaks and is need of tear off and replacement. Our roofs survived through last two years of hurricanes, by God's grace. 

Our church campus is a beautiful place for being at peace with God.  We are a gospel centered church and believe in sharing the Word of God with love, grace and truth.  We are praying for our church to survive in a world that is shifting farther away from God.

We have a benefactor that has offered a matching of $5000 in donations.   Our sanctuary roof needs repair this year.  With this offering we hope to have the funds to replace the roof.  Once we get estimates we will have a better idea of what we need and how we will proceed.  Please support this with your prayers.  Thanks be to God for all the good that He does for us and how He loves us.

Glory of God church is blessed with the generosity of our loyal members and visitors.  Two of the saints at our church went to the Lord this year.  Howard and JD both completed their journeys in January.  We will miss them, but we know that they are with our Lord.  We rejoice for them and know we will see them again in the presence of Glory.  Both men were involved with the repair of our buildings and were a blessing to us.

Glory of God Anglican Church in Cocoa, Florida was blessed to be the meeting place for the CANA East Pastoral Retreat in early October for the fourth time.  At Glory of God, we see this as a special blessing for us to be able to utilize our campus as a place for fellowship for our Bishops and Pastors and their wives to worship the Lord and to find fellowship, rest and God's peace.

Our church is on Indian River Drive in Cocoa, Florida.  It is a scenic drive where many bicyclists, runners and walkers use the road.  The view of the river is beautiful.  Driving to the church on a bright Sunday morning for worship or early evening for bible study, the colors on the river can be magnificent.  Coming towards the river from US1 when the moon is full, rising and illuminating the river is quite spectacular as well.  The Lord has given us a beautiful setting to worship Him in all His glory.

The Lord works in interesting ways.......

Last year, with Hurricane Matthew quickly approaching, our visiting clergy were able to depart during the calm before the storm.

This year Hurricane Irma passed through three weeks prior to the retreat.  Praise God that there was time to cleaned up the tree debris from the campus before the arrival of the clergy and our grounds looked wonderful.  However, there was (and still is) a beached sailboat across from the entrance to the church.  The road leading up to the church had big piles of debris waiting for the FEMA pick up.  There was stormy weather and a strong east wind that made the too high river very rough, causing it to wash over the road.  The water was deep in some areas and the drive was a challenge for our cars.

During the four days that our visitors were here, everyone battled the river to make it to and from the church.  God kept our little church safe though and we did make it to the church each day.  And we saw the sun and the moon and the stars at times too.  We worshiped and praised our Lord in Christian fellowship and were all blessed.
