NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

Bible discussion on Tuesdays

The book of Esther is the only book in the Bible that does not mention God, except in the Apocrypha version which we are studying. This interesting book also is the source for the Jewish festival of Purim. We had engaging conversation on the first part of Esther; as one member said of the book’s relevance to today, “It’s like it was written yesterday!” We will be exploring the second half of Esther this coming Tuesday. You are welcome to join us at 11:30 in the Fireplace Room (enter the building at door #4, which is on the driveway side of the church). Bibles that include the Apocrypha text will be on hand for you to use. We also offer a virtual option.

Tuesday 11:30 a.m.

Sunday worship reminders

Our church nursery will welcome children every

Sunday from 9:45 to 11:15 a.m. 

 

Remember that you can still be part of our weekly worship virtually! To join worship via Facebook, look for an email Sunday with a link to our worship (available to all, not just those with a Facebook account) and worship materials. You can watch live or after the event on your phone, tablet or computer. You can easily find the Facebook live feed on the home page of our website (scroll to the bottom). 

Join us: Akron Pride Festival March

We are among the supporters of the Akron Pride Festival, and hope to have an excellent turnout from our church at the March on Aug. 27. We want to show our support for this year’s theme of “Stronger Together,” and their work against “Don’t Say Gay” initiatives in schools. Please make a commitment to walk in the March (it’s just over half a mile) and sign up to let us know you will be attending. The sign up sheet is at the FW Connect desk in the lobby. 

More details to come.
