Why Not Me – Serving at Urban Vision!

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Matthew 19:14

Jesus wants us to bring the children to Him.
The kingdom of heaven belongs to those who have child-like faith.

These children recently became followers of Jesus (Photo courtesy of Urban Vision's Facebook page)

How does this happen today?
Faith comes to children, or anyone, by hearing the Word of God.  And Christ Community Chapel local ministry partner Urban Vision works to make sure the children in North Akron hear the Word. Urban Vision seeks to build a vibrant, unified community, transformed through the love and hope of Jesus Christ. 

What can I do?
You can help by serving at Urban Vision. Here are several serving opportunities, as expressed by UV’s Nathan Kreis:
