BENEFITING: COMMUNITY OF CHRIST CHURCH INCORPORATED
EVENT: Akron Marathon 2013
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2013
Community of Christ Church is a community of people who have come to the end of ourselves. As painful as that ending may have been, it is there that we have found a The Rescuer of our lives in the person of Jesus Christ. By visiting jails - offering residence to former drug addicts and alcoholics who have come through treatment or the jail system, by offering an Addication Recovery in Christ meeting on Friday nights - by helping the needy and homeless, by sharing of the hope we have inside - we give of ourselves to the outer downtown Akron community. Oh, we still struggle, that is plain to see. We remain all too human as we learn to allow God to change us and build His character in us. Call it recovery or call it sanctification, but call us fortunate and thankful to be applying God's power for change in our own lives and in the lives of those we come in contact with. We may be from backgrounds of addiction, abuse, divorce, poverty, fear, etc - but we have become children of the Living God. We know that the chains that hold us back from living into who God intended us to be have been broken and we are set free so that we can be instruments of God's Peace, Power, Love and Way of Life to people who desparately need it. You can help. I will do the hard part of running / not walking 26.2 miles. If you can do the easy part by pushing some keys to donate, you too can be a part of the miracles which are happening in the lives of those who are being transformed by the Hand of God.
My Goal is $2,620 (26.2 with a little 0 at the end) - please help me to obtain that goal as I also try to obtain a 5 hour 15 minutes goal. My additional goal is to have 100 people give $26.20. Thank you and my God bless your giving.
