Looking for a way to serve?

One of the on-going ways that Christ Community Chapel seeks to serve RAHAB MINISTRIES is by providing meals and cookies to the Rahab House in Akron each month.  Women who are in various stages of reclaiming their lives gather several times a week for Bible study and fellowship and enjoy a home cooked meal together around the table.  Enjoying this kind of Godly fellowship and delicious food is something most of us would take for granted. But for these women who are being rescued off the streets and from a life of drugs, prostitution, and crime, it is an experience that touches them deeply. They are so appreciative that strangers would take the time and effort to provide a delicious home cooked meal for them, served to them at a beautifully set table with real dishes and tableware, not  paper and plastic products and institution style food, which most of them have been accustomed to during their time of incarceration.

If would would like to join a team of ladies who donate these meals and cookies once a month, we make it very easy for you to help. The need is on-going from September through May.  All you need to do is bring a frozen or freezer-ready casserole (or soup) or several dozen cookies to the church office during regular office hours. The food items need to be packaged to stack in our freezer and clearly marked for RAHAB MINISTRIES, with the date and the name of the item, and any special reheating instructions.  Once a month, the collected frozen food items are then delivered to the Rahab House. 

If this sounds like something you can do to help, please contact Jacque Stager by email, for further information.
