New Here? Welcome to St. Paul's!
Greetings! Whether you are looking for a new church home in Akron, or want to explore the Christian faith again or for the first time, look at the dynamic and broad congregation that is St. Paul’s!
Our worship services, described here, are on Sunday morning at 8:00, 9:15 and 11:00, and on Saturday evening at 5:30. Take a moment and explore our ministry pages too.
Our Next Newcomer Events
Newcomers Coffee & Dessert
On Sunday, October 16 at 7pm, Mark and Becky Pruitt will host a Newcomers Coffee & Dessert at their home. If you would like to attend, please call the front desk 330-836-9327. It's a relaxed time to learn a little more about St. Paul's and to meet other newcomers. Registration by October 13 is important so we can plan for you.
Our Newcomer Tables and Book Carts have Bibles and two kinds of books this autumn, books that explain the basics of our worship, and books that explain basic features of Christian living.
We offer a Newcomers class--called The Discovery Class--periodically at St. Paul's. We explain our motto "Living in the Fullness of Christ" by explaining the importance of the good news, and telling who we are, what we do, what we believe, and why we do the things we do! This course is also a place for people to explore the faith in a casual, open setting.
This autumn the three week Discovery Class will meet Wednesday nights from 7:00pm-8:15pm at the church, October 19-November 2, with an invitation to join the Rector at the community meal at 6pm. Depending on the size of the class, the group will meet in the Rector's office or another room. Childcare and dinner are available with no cost! Advance notice for child care is required.
