NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Bible study twice weekly

We don’t speed through our Bible studies because our conversations about what we read is so rich.  It is marvelous to hear others perspective on the text, to engage a variety of questions, and explore how it relates to our world today. We hope you will drop in to one of our groups and join the conversation! Choose whichever session is best for you, or come to both if you like.

Click the Zoom link below to join.

 

Tuesday 11:30 a.m.

Wednesday 6:30 p.m.

Join us for Akron Pride March

As an open and affirming church we are happy to announce that we plan to continue our support of the Akron Pride Festival and March this summer but in a slightly different way. Our church community will join the Akron Equity March that day, August 28, at 10 a.m. It starts near Spaghetti Warehouse and continues to Lock 3. A sign up sheet and further details will be available soon. We hope you'll consider participating!

We support Family Promise

Our next activity for Family Promise will be a cookout on Saturday, Aug. 21, from 4 to 6 p.m. for the families at Glendora House. They have a new charcoal grill, which we can use — charcoal and grilling tools are supplied. We will provide the food, beverages, and plates. Will you help us with this mission project? Please contact the church office to sign up or if you have any questions.
