WOW is hosting a free event on creative journaling. A wonderful journaling enthusiast from our church, Marie Shoup, will teach us how to develop a special Advent-themed journal. It can be used to deepen our own journey to Christmas or to give as a gift to others. The event will be held in the dining room of The Chapel in Akron, and a nice breakfast will be served. There also will be journaling materials available to purchase. All of those proceeds will be donated to Broken Chains Ministry in Akron to provide transitional housing to women coming out of prison and/or opiate addiction. Please RSVP to Kathie Brown at email@example.com .
This special Christmas JJ&J will be held at The Chapel's Akron Campus, 135 Fir Hill, Akron, OH 44304
The Pheasant Run Trail-Sherman Shelter at Silver Creek Metro Park, Norton, OH
What if you could do something really cool with your family and potentially help hundreds of people at the same time? Here’s your opportunity!
A post-church hamburger and hot dog picnic, • A 1.5 mile hike (rated easy), (Hiking Spree forms will be available for all!) • And a presentation of stories from The Chapel’s recent trips to the Yucatan Peninsula. • And how about a hammock siesta after blazing the hiking trail? WOW has you covered!
The Mayan women of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula carefully hand-weave hammocks in their huts and yards, selling them at market to provide for their families. Their profit is minimal, though, and they would benefit far more from additional earning sources. WOW has purchased some of the hammocks directly from the women, in order to resell them stateside and help develop a seed fund for a more sustainable and profitable microenterprise.
Cost of the picnic is $2.50 per person or $10 per family, and all proceeds will benefit Greater Akron’s own Broken Chains Ministry. So that we are certain to have enough food, please RSVP by Friday, September 8th to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are sold out!! Please let us know if you would like to be added to our waiting list! Contact email@example.com
