Know the Story: First Glance Open House could be an eye-opener!

18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, 19 and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength 20 he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms…
From Ephesians 1:18-20

God invites us to open the eyes of our spiritual hearts.

In the resurrection of Jesus Christ, God has used His power to ignite eternal hope in Christians.

God also invites us to open our eyes to spiritual needs of others.

It is possible to for believers to be completely unaware of those in need who may be only a short distance from where we live. Perhaps you sense a call to open the eyes of your heart in compassion toward the less fortunate.

For example, the First Glance youth center ministers to the relational, spiritual and mentoring needs of young people in the Kenmore area of Akron, Ohio.  First Glance serves as a bridge between the unchurched, at-risk youth of Kenmore and the church. Through caring, loving and genuine relationships, First Glance staff and volunteers aim to show young people the love of God and hope He offers.

Sounds interesting. What should I do?

You can prayerfully consider attending the First Glance open house this Sunday, April 10th at 12 PM to learn more about opportunities pray, give and go in support of the Kenmore youth center. The center is located at 943 Kenmore Boulevard, Akron, Ohio.
