Is your Bible study group, ABF,  Community Group or other small group looking for an opportunity to serve? We have simple  opportunity coming up on APRIL 22 when  you can fill a need!

Rahab Ministries, a Christ Community Chapel Ministry Partner,  is holding a two day prayer training seminar in downtown Akron and they need a nice lunch to be provided for about 50 attendees on Saturday, April 22. They are requesting a simple buffet style lunch be set up and ready to eat. This can either consist of ready-made sandwiches, or a meat and cheese tray or chicken salad with buns, bread, or rolls, possibly a tossed salad or veggie sticks, maybe chips, some kind of fruit, and brownies for dessert.  Those are suggestions but you get the picture. Rahab will be providing beverages so you don't need to worry about those.

Your group would provide the food, paper plates, napkins etc. and set it up on tables provided.  It would probably take you less than an hour and once the buffet table is set up, you are free to leave. The seminar attendees only have a short time to eat lunch, so having this provided for them would be a huge blessing.

Please contact Jacque Stager ( or 330 687 1071) to volunteer for this serving spree opportunity and for further details or questions.

Serving Spree: The Fruit of Repentance

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Matthew 4:17

Jesus calls all to repentance.

He calls for our hearts to recognize our sinfulness, God’s grace, and our need for a Savior to re-orient our hearts toward God.

Inward repentance leads to outward fruit.

A re-oriented heart that loves God yearns to demonstrate God’s grace, love and redeeming power to others.  John the Baptist therefore admonished outwardly religious people to bear fruit in keeping with repentance.  Those whose hearts belong to Jesus long to show God’s love by acts of serving others in Jesus’ name.

How can I serve?

Christ Community Chapel’s Serving Spree offers the following options for you to prayerfully consider.

Jesus said one could know His followers by their fruit.  How are you called to bear fruit for Him?
