Serving Spree: You Can Give Hope to the Broken Hearted

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:3

Followers of Jesus recognize their spiritual poverty.

When we acknowledge that we are spiritually bankrupt, we may become open to receiving all the riches of God’s grace in Jesus.  This requires us to place all our trust in Jesus as our Lord and Savior as shown in the Gospel.

Because we are broken and forgiven, we share the Gospel with others.

Some of the most broken people are found in detention facilities.  Because they are dealing with the consequences of sin, they may be open to the Gospel message of God’s grace and forgiveness in Jesus Christ.

Richard White is in charge of the Restoration Chapel initiative

How can you help?

One avenue to explore is arranging a Wednesday night Serving Spree visit to Restoration Chapel by your Community Group.   This is an opportunity to attend worship services with the young men, and learn about the impact that Christ Community Chapel’s Restoration Chapel initiative is having. 

Any community group interested in attending should contact Barbara Ammirati of the Local Outreach Team by email. Barbara typically organizes a visit with participants meeting at the CCC Hudson Campus atrium at 5:45 PM to pray, and go over a few aspects of the visit.  Transportation to Restoration Chapel can be provided.  Visiting groups usually leave the CCC campus by 6 PM and return by 9 PM.

One community group from CCC recent made this visit, and was truly moved by the work God is doing at Restoration Chapel. This group highly recommends this visit to others, who will better understand how the Gospel is restoring the broken lives of so many young men.

A second community group has arranged to visit Restoration Chapel on April 12th.
