THE STORY:

Community Miracles Center is the longest existing A Course in Miracles based-church anywhere! We've been at this location for almost 30 years and miracles have happened along the way. There are 98 CMC ordained ministers, over 3,000 people have attended our ACIM Conferences and we've expanded our local offerings to include Sunday services, meditation group and LGBTQ support groups, as long as the traditional ACIM study group. It's been a great experience! And most of the space has not been updated since about the time we started!

So, in celebration, we are launching CMC's $40K for 30 years! We'd like to remodel the space to include upgrading the audio-visual equipment, new office furniture (some of which is falling apart literally!), clean the carpets and get new drapes, as well as bring in some more modern aesthetics to the space. In the end, we would like to see a space that is not only welcoming for those who attend (and accessible for those with mobility challenges), but also functional for the staff to able to share the CMC ministry more effectively across the world and to our members who are out of the area! But we need your help! Please consider sharing! All donations are tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) organization! (Please note that the goal amount was based on quotes given by various companies. If we have funds left over, they will be used as deemed appropriate by the CMC).

Listed below are some of the items we are looking to purchase/upgrade, approximate costs and planned usage if appropriate. The costs listed are for purchase only and do not include installation which will also need paid for (pictures are below of what we have and what we are envisioning!):
