Haven of Rest is Christ Community Chapel’s SOS (Simple Opportunities to Serve) ministry partner for September!

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Matthew, Chapter 6

God provides for the needy.
He meets needs for food, clothing and other necessities. However, Jesus reminds us in this passage the life is more than food. 

God provides through His people, who serve in His name.
Haven of Rest Ministries has provided for the temporal needs of the less fortunate in the Akron area for over 70 years. Since life is more than food, Haven also ministers to the eternal needs of men, women and children. This CCC ministry partner introduces people to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Who is the Bread of Life.

How can I be part of this?
Consider which of these options may be a calling for you:

Give: Haven of Rest has an upcoming clothing drop off weekend. Please bring gently used clothing to the Christ Community Chapel Hudson campus the weekend of Sept. 20-21 before or after service. Drop off in the Atrium of the Hudson Campus.  Be sure to mark your donations ‘Haven of Rest.’
Serve: Gather a group of 5-7 of your friends and schedule a night to serve dinner at Haven of Rest. You will be guided through the entire process by the staff at Haven. It is a wonderful experience! Contact Duncan Othen (CCC local Outreach Coordinator for Haven of Rest) at:
