Haven

Just a quick reminder that we serve at the Haven of Rest in Akron on the first Saturday of every month, feeding the homeless and needy. So that’s this Saturday, November 5. We meet at the Haven at 10AM. If you’ve never helped with rewarding ministry, give it a try. If you have questions, you can reach out to Paul Richards or Larry and Karen Cannon.  

THE BEST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH IS HERE!

Well, at least the best for the guys who attend Men’s Prayer Breakfasts! That’s right… it’s tomorrow, October 22nd, at 8:00AM in the new building. Food, Fun, Fellowship, and Feasting on God’s Word. Believe me, if you’ve not attended one before, you don’t want to miss it. And if you have attended it before, I know you’re adding an AMEN to what I just said. Come early and get a seat!

They Ate!

So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (Acts 2:46 NKJV) That was the early church, and guess what? We will follow in their footsteps Saturday (April 23rd at 8AM) as we gather for Men’s Prayer Breakfast! Guys, this is not something you’ll want to miss – join us for great food and fellowship. Bring your Bibles and prayer requests, too, for…

More Sweat Equity Opportunity!

Calling able bodied men! We have a need for some high work. This Thursday, we need to do some cutting of the styrofoam where the trusses will attach. This will involve working about 18′ in the air. So I’m asking for help in two ways: Anybody have access to scaffolding which will allow us to reach that height? If so, please reply a.s.a.p. We will rent if need be. We need some men willing to climb that scaffolding and work…
