May 2022 Prayer Walk

Come join us for an evening of prayer walking the neighborhoods surrounding the Metanoia Center.   We are planning to divide into several groups to be led by Jim, Phyllis and our board members to pray specifically for the needs of the community.   This is a rain or shine event!  In the event of rain we’ll pray inside of 115 N. Wayne.

Tuesday, May 24th at 6:30 pm at 115 N. Wayne.   If you have any questions or need more details please feel free to phone us at 513.399.6407 or send us an email by going here.

Shake the Roof Update

As of April 26 we have exceeded the matching gift challenge for Shake the Roof.   One of our generous donors provided us with a $6000 one-for-one matching gift challenge.   $6540 was donated towards this gift that included a grant in the amount of $4100 from the Live Generously initiative of Parkside Christian Church, Cincinnati, pushing us over the top.   The total for the challenge and the match comes to $12,540!  Praise God!  Thank you for donating to make this possible.

The new metal roof has been ordered!  We are awaiting it’s arrival and installation! Stay tuned for pictures to come of the new look!

Thank You Faith Bible Church Children’s Ministry

The call went out for the need for snacks for the Metanoia Center!   And Faith Bible Church’s Children’s Ministry collected boxes of snacks!!

Thank you for responding with great generosity!

We provide snacks for the after school ministry as well as ESL and other activities that happen at, or are sponsored by, the Metanoia Center!

Exterior Painting

When you now drive by 113 – 115 N. Wayne Ave you should see a different look.  This past month we hired DeltaPro painting contractors to paint the second story spaces of both buildings.   Due to the height, and the need for lots of ladder and hanging-off-the-roof work we decided to bring in insured professionals to complete this task.   There still remains some first floor priming and painting to be done!   For the  most part thought, we are sporting a new finished look on both addresses.

Do you enjoy painting out of doors by brush or roller?  Reach out to Jim and let him know.   We can schedule almost any day to complete your joy by finding a time for you to volunteer to complete the exterior painting project at the Center. Reach him by phone at 513.399.6407 or via email by going here.

Prayer List

  • Please continue praying for permits to be approved by Hamilton County.   Our architect informs us that his plan is to re-submit them this past week!  UPDATE APRIL 29, 9:32 AM – Hamilton Country has issued us a permit for 113 N. Wayne.  Let the work begin!  Praise God!
  • Praise God for the volunteers who joined us on our work day, Judi, John and Kevin.  Debris got moved to a dump truck and some exterior painting was completed.
  • Praise God for surpassing the Shake the Roof goal!  Thank you donors!
  • Pray for this Saturday’s rummage sale at Lockland Christian Church.   Pastor Don has set a goal of $1000 in proceeds from the rummage sale to donate to the Metanoia Center.   (See image above for details).
  • Join us in praying for the upcoming May 2022 Prayer Walk.   For others to participate with us especially from our partnering and local church fellowships to seek God for the neighborhoods surrounding the Metanoia Center.
