Operation Christmas Child message and materials given out Nov. 17th.
Living out the Grace and Truth of Jesus together.
Dan Kimble has said that "Many people like Jesus, they just don't like church." What I think they mean is that people don't like church as they have experienced it. Some might say we are a church for people who don't like church, although if you like church but want something different, give us a try.
Jesus didn't have a church building - we don't either. We meet where people are. This is in a way symbolic of our aim, to meet where people are. Jesus went to where the people were, He didn't expect them to come to Him.
We meet in the lounge at Akron Lanes (2911 E. Waterloo Rd, Akron, Ohio 44312) around tables in a casual atmosphere among friendly, people who are casually dressed. The music is upbeat and fun, messages are interactive (you can ask questions during the sermon if you want), biblical and practical. We have kid's church for 4th grade and younger (5th and older can be helpers, if there is room :) ) during the sermon. We have a sharing time at the end of our Sunday service with an "open mike" for praises, input, questions and prayer requests. This is to allows the body of Christ to to hear input from many, not just a few.
Action Youth (5th-12th grade) meets on Wednesdays at Akron Lanes (2911 E Waterloo Rd, Akron, 44312) at 6pm for a game of bowling followed by a video and discussion and pizza.Since we don't have a mortage or electric bills our offerings can go to helping people with needs.
Action Men meet at 6:15pm on Tuesdays at the lanes in the meeeting room. There is also a men's Life Transformation Group at Farmer Boys on Canton Rd. 7:30am on Thursdays (Check with pastor Bill before coming because the location changes sometimes, (330)808-4043)
We laugh, love and learn together.
Come invest an hour this Sunday - coffee, donuts, cookies, milk, juice and great fellowship before and after our 10am service.
In Christ, Pastor Bill
