Coming this weekend!

Micah 6:8 Weekend
This weekend, of April 6 and 7 on the Hudson campus, will be our second Micah 6:8 weekend celebration, in which we seek to do the acts of justice and mercy that God loves. Under the theme of Body and Soul, the weekend will feature opportunities to support both local and global ministries. Last year, Christ Community Chapel members donated $900,000 in support of local and global ministry partners, as well as adoption programs.
The special weekend this year will focus on, among other ministries, Faithful Servants, a local outreach partner devoted to providing urgent care services with Christ-like compassion for those without insurance and the economic means to access traditional health care, and to assist in identifying continuity of care.
The first donation for this year’s event has already been received by Faithful Servants. The organization needed two iPads with wi-fi and Face Time capability to enable telemedicine access to local emergency rooms, and for consults with local specialists. Recently, two refurbished iPads were donated to Faithful Servants, allowing interactive communication between the Faithful Servants facility in Tallmadge and key specialists. We already have reason to celebrate God’s provision through His people, as He has provided technology that leverages the expertise across the pool of participating doctors.
This year’s Micah 6:8 weekend will provide additional support for Faithful Servants on the local outreach side, with a goal of obtaining funds for medicine for the patients and equipment for the Faithful Servants facility, such as an EKG machine, an ultra-sound machine, and three flat-screen monitors for the exam rooms to share the Gospel message with clients while they are waiting. There will also be great opportunities to support global outreach ministry partners Hospital Shalom (Guatemala), Christian Hospital Tank (Pakistan), and Boys Ministry (Senegal) this weekend.
Would you prayerfully consider how God may be calling you to support Christ Community Chapel’s global and local ministry partners this weekend?
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?”
