North Toledo has a group of people on Stickney Ave. who are dedicated to the cause of doing what makes sense to help those in need, especially during the holiday. All that they ask is that you just show up at their doors to receive a blessing. Word of Faith Ministries has partnered with the Founders, Bro. Michael Colbert and his spouse, Mrs. Erma Colbert, in their 5th year of providing food boxes, clothing, coats, haircuts, and nail polishing to families.
When the doors opened on Friday, December 15th, more than 100 families walked through the doors to receive happily, items that enhanced the smiles on faces for the gifts that were received, as well as enjoying a fresh haircut from Toledo Public Schools Barber Instructors. Michael Colbert and Associate were the Nail Technicians bringing smiles with a fresh nail polish for participants.
And fast forwarding, North End Car Washing Detailing, Demoores Balnkston, Owner, has partnered with Word of Faith for the third year, to provide a Christmas Dinner for the community on Christmas Day at Word Of Faith Church. It will take place from 12 noon to 4 PM. The church is located at 2911 Stickney Ave. The regular services at the church take place at 11:00 each Sunday.
The Colberts, Bishop Kevin and Pastor Terri Sutton extends their thanks to the 25 Volunteers from various churches who helped with the event, as well as a great big thanks to Ruby's Kitchen and Marty McCabe for the delicious dinner.
We pray continued blessings on The Colberts, Suttons, and those who make this day such a gift to the community. Season's greetings!
