NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Bible discussion on Tuesdays

The book Isaiah is perhaps one of the best-loved and most influential from the Old Testament on Christian tradition and faith. It is also a book that is frequently misunderstood and misused. Join us Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. in the Fireplace Room, or you may join via Zoom by clicking below.  

Tuesday 11:30 a.m.

Register kids for our summer camp!

Fairlawn-West is happy to be partnering with Akron Public Schools this summer on two weeks of faith-based camps for children who will attend kindergarten in the fall (in any school or district). Camps will take place at Fairlawn-West UCC.

 

Our teachers and volunteers will help campers learn the values of kindness, generosity, and safety — values that lead to peace within a person, help build positive relationships with others, and create a happy and successful life. Children will enjoy songs, arts and crafts, active games, and learn about other places in the world, playground safety, and much more — all while having fun! 

 

Choose from two different weeks for “All Aboard the Peace Express Train!” -- June 13-17 or June 20-24. The day is from 9 to 11:30 a.m. THESE CAMPS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO ALL.

Focus on our ministries in May

Council has designated May as Ministry Month to highlight the importance of serving others. We who are dedicated to following Jesus’ Way know that caring for and helping others is vital to bringing about positive change in the world, as well as enriching our individual faith journey. The FW Connect Committee has done significant work to survey our current ministries and invite ideas for new ministries.  Each Sunday through May we will focus attention on a few of our ministries. We hope that each of us will learn, volunteer, and share our passion—

FW Connect: Nurturing Community Life through Christian Service!
