Take a moment to delve into the fears that linger in our heart. What guidance do we utilize to identify and remedy our fears in order to grow spiritually? This sermon will use a personal example as a means to encourage us all to face the hard parts of life and to have a mindset prepared to take care of them.

Focus Collection for November: Greater Cleveland Food Bank
November officially begins the holiday season. It is a time for giving thanks and appreciating all that we have. Sadly, many of our neighbors in Cuyahoga and surrounding counties may not have as much as many of us. Because of this, we support The Greater Cleveland Food Bank for their Thanksgiving Fund Drive. The Greater Cleveland Food Bank works to ensure that everyone in our communities has the nutritious food they need every day. The food bank provides meals to over 247,000 different people in its six county service area. There are still 330,000 Northeast Ohioans who are food insecure, meaning they don’t always know where they will find their next
meal. The food bank has a goal to increase meals provided to 58 million in 2018. This is a
considerable increase from 2015 where they provided 47 million meals. Two- thirds of what
they distribute is healthy, perishable foods such as fruits, vegetables and prepared meals. About one-third of the people served are children. Many seniors are in need as well as households with members who suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure. For every dollar donated, the Food Bank distributes enough food for four meals. 96% of the donation goes directly to Food Bank programs and Services. Please give generously to feed our hungry neighbors.
