EMZBC Receives Restoration Grant

Thirty-five historic Black churches across the country, some right here in Northeast Ohio, are sharing $4 million in grant money. The goal is to make investments in the buildings and to help the people who fill them;

A focus on Black churches and the congregations they serve—congregations like the one at the East Mount Zion Baptist Church, which worships at the Euclid Avenue Christian Church, a building steeped in history.

It was once a jewel on Cleveland’s old “millionaire’s row.” The money will help preserve this historic building, a building that, as Pastor Brian Cash says, needs stabilization before restoration. But it’ll also strengthen its capacity to serve both the spiritual and social needs of this community.

Growing As Disciples of Christ: Blessed Are The Meek

February 5, 2023 - by Rev. Dr. Brian A. Cash, Pastor EMZBC

Matthew 5:5 NIV

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
    for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
    for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
    for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
