Outreach Ministries

  • Second SaturdayThe Second Saturday ministry strives to love our neighbors as ourselves by going out on the second Saturday of chosen months to tangibly meet the needs of those in our local community. Common locations include Akron Canton Regional Foodbank, Haven of Rest, ACCESS shelter, Ronald McDonald House, and Summit County Children’s Services, among others. We are willing to serve in any capacity, and in all Akron-area non-profits and charitable organizations. Our ministry serves both religious and secular based organizations in order serve and share the light and love of Jesus Christ everywhere we can.

    Matthew 22:39 - "And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
    John 15:12 - “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you."
    James 1:27 - "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."

  • Fall Event

    This free family event is always the Sunday of or before Halloween. Families from the church dress up and decorate their trunks to pass out candy in the church parking lot. We provide a great time for children in our church and in the neighborhood to dress up and have a great night of fun! We also provide hot chocolate and a fire pit if the evening is cold and food for those who come hungry!

  • Winter Event

    A Jazz Christmas is a wonderful evening to come and sit back and relax while listening to Vince Didato on the piano. Vince has a rich background in jazz and loves to use his gifts for the Lord. This community event is typically in the beginning of December. Please watch for a specific date on the home page.

  • Winter Event

    This is a great night as our church sets up a huge screen for the biggest football game of the year! We have a wonderful time together as we combine this event with a chili cook off! Come enjoy plenty of food, bring your favorite side dish, or make a chili and enter it into the contest! Prizes are given throughout the evening! We also have a screen for video games and other fun activities for children (or adults) who don't care to watch the game the whole time.

  • Spring Event

    This free community event for the family is the first Saturday in May. We have plenty of games to play all afternoon. Children play the games for free and earn tickets. With those tickets the children are able to go on the bouncers, buy food, do the cake walk, or buy prizes. Again it's all free!

  • Summer Event

    Vacation Bible School is free to the community. It is for ages 3 - going into 6th grade. VBS runs in the evenings Sunday through Thursday with a Family Picnic on Friday and is typically in the middle of July. Our church family loves to serve in and run VBS! The look of our church completely changes to the theme for each year. More importantly it is another opportunity to share about the love of Christ!
