Our (Pregnancy Help Center) 35th Birthday Bash in Boardman Park is coming at us quickly! This is an entirely FREE EVENT (not a fundraiser) and open to the public. We are having a variety of fun-filled activities including face painting, rub-on tattoos, games for all ages, hot dogs, side dishes, snow cones, popcorn and KAST IRON SODA WORKS is generously donating their time and sweet cream root beer floats! We are excited and hopeful for a wonderful turn out of family and friends to come and celebrate all that the Lord has done here in the past 35 years!
Would you consider joining us? Bring your friends, kids, grandkids, neighbors and churches and join us anytime from 12-3 at HOFMASTER Pavilion on August 27th in Boardman Park.
Please take one minute to respond with a number of adults and children you plan to bring along so we can prepare food and goodies for everyone. Call to RSVP: 330-788-4000.
We hope to see all of you for a fun celebration in less than 3 short weeks!
Missions begins at home
In Acts 1:8 we see that the first place Jesus told them to go was their local community. Jesus said, “Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.” Jerusalem was their own local community and with “Judea,” “Samaria,” and “the remotest part of the earth” the mission field expanded. We, as a church support local need based ministries. Missions begins at home.
To name a few:
We support the Pregnancy Help Center
We support the Beatitude House.
In addition to these our members and friends of the church are active in their communities helping those in need. We believe we all must be like the Good Samaritan seeking to love and help people in our day-to-day lives. The greatest commandment is to love God and love people (Matthew 22:37-40). Jesus teaches that even our enemy is our neighbor whom we are to love (Luke 10:30-37).
We have local ministries through VBS donations, the annual “Great-give-a-way,” the Thanksgiving Dinner and other opportunities.
