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. Last year, the Glory of God Tuesday and Friday Food Ministry served 10,880 households – 29,185 people (8,053 children). We have a Nursing Home Ministry where we go to the homes and provide worship services with reading of the scriptures and Holy Eucharist. During the summer months we have community movie nights where many 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 also partner with Christian Rural Ministry in Uganda - providing support for our brothers and sisters in Africa.
Our campus is in serious need of three new roofs. The campus grounds and buildings have been under major restoration for three years and, with God's help, great progress has been made. But with roofs not being a DIY and with time ticking... I've put up this campaign asking for help. Our sanctuary has a steep slope and the old and weathered shingles on the north side are holding by the grace of God. Last summer, by God's grace, we had some success with band aids on the two, worn and blistered, flat roofs. With what help we get, all the glory to God and blessings and thanks to you. Thank you for visiting our page and God be with you.

The church campus is on the Indian River in Cocoa, Florida. It has a quiet solitude and is a place where our Pastor keeps us faithful to the gospel as it was received from our Lord. There is a powerful presence of the Holy Spirit in this quaint setting.
The Problem - Our Roof
The roofs are an expensive undertaking and it is not a DIY project - it is work that our small congregation cannot do ourselves - it has to be done by professionals and to code.
Where the money goes:
We have estimates on the cost:
Lower Flat Roof of Parrish Hall ~ $45,000
Upper Flat Roof - Education Building ~ $25,000
Sanctuary and Bell Tower ~ $50,000
We are asking for $150,000 to add for the likely possibility of higher cost due to water intrusion, to do repair around windows, treat for mold and replace ceiling tiles.
The Impact our Church has on our community
We give thanks, praise and all the glory to God for blessing our congregation in helping our community and the world. We serve with the gifts God has provided and for a small congregation (we have about 70 members) there is a lot of activity at our church. Members offer generosity of time, love and spiritual guidance.
We have a congregation of committed believers who live the Word daily in their personal lives with devoted, faithful, personal prayer and who are passionate about having meaningful, Spirit-guided personal and corporate worship both inside and outside the church.

If you are in the central Florida area, we’d love you to join us for worship, the study of God’s Word, our fellowship gatherings or to share a meal together. We are not far from Orlando or the beaches and are across the Indian River from the Kennedy Space Center. The drive along the river to the campus is a scenic route with old Florida beauty. We’d welcome your visit and the sharing of fellowship in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Risks & Challenges
Our major risk is time and weather. We have been blessed not to have had a hurricane or severe storm. If we do not raise all of the money, we will use the money we raise towards the sanctuary roof. It is the most susceptible to further damage and the most difficult to work on.
Other Ways You Can Help:
There are other ways to help if you are unable to support our campaign financially:
- Prayer is powerful. Please stand with us in Christian fellowship and join in prayer for our church to be able to continue the mission for God for many years to come.
- Share the campaign link on Facebook, twitter, etc. Put links to this page on your social media properties. E-mail your friends that you support this. We need people to see our campaign.
- Tell your family, friends, neighbors - anyone you talk to who wants to listen - about our campaign and about God and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Pray for God to call His people and for God to draw His people to Him. For God to awaken His people to His glory. To give them eyes to see and ears to hear the truth of scripture. For the Holy Spirit to engage all Christians in the mission of Jesus Christ our Lord, our King and our Savior. For Christians to turn to God and fill our churches to worship and glorify Him.
Thank you for your prayers, they mean everything!
