NEWS AND UPCOMING EVENTS

On the Table Greater Akron 

Thanks to those who shared ideas to improve our community over a mealtime discussion  with Fairlawn-West as we took part in Akron Community Foundation's On the Table Greater Akron project. We hosted conversations on the topics of Equity and Social Inclusion and
Education and Youth Development.

GapPack effort begins again

We are once again supporting children in need at Resnik Community Learning Center through our GapPacks program. We provide weekend bags of food to 30 children each week. You can help by contributing items, such as individually packaged applesauce or fruit cups. Please bring any donations to the church and place in the wicker chest by the Sanctuary. Thank you for your support!

New study group starting soon

Consider joining our new small group study, “Way of Life!”  This 4-session study, by best selling author, Christian thinker and activist Brian McLaren, will begin the week of Oct. 14.  We have several groups forming and one group will meet starting Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 6 p.m. at the church. “Way of Life” explores setting aside a rigid set of beliefs to focus on living the good news of Christ Jesus in our daily lives.  Study guide is $5; the book "The Great Spiritual Migration" is $10 (book not necessary, but is great for those interested in more detail).  Please prayerfully consider joining a group to deepen friendships within your church, enliven your spiritual journey, and invigorate your Christian faith.
