To our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Community and to All Visitors—
Thank you for your ongoing flexibility during this difficult time as we #StaySafe, #StayCool and #StayPrayerful during the CoronaVirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. We ask that each of our members and friends continues to do what is necessary to keep the spread of the virus under control and transition beyond our Ohio “stay-at-home” status. Thanks to everyone who has been able to catch our live stream events and video messages. We had another successful double-header message of God’s Word with our Live Stream Sunday School session and our Drive-In Worship Service on Sunday, May 24. Praise the Lord for His grace and His faithfulness! There is freedom in worship, and we are doing what we can to give honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ while making sure to take extra special care of our church family and friends.
Please stay tuned to this page for regular updates pertaining to our church schedule.
Our schedule for this Sunday, May 24: We will have another Live Stream Sunday School event at 9:30 AM EDT via Facebook Live on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Facebook page. After Sunday School, our church will be gathering in our parking lot for a Drive-In Worship Service at 11:00 AM. Weather permitting, we will also broadcast this event via Live Stream on Facebook Live. The parking lot is in the rear of the church, and the church address is 688 Diagonal Road, Akron OH. People are allowed to remain in their vehicles during the service, or you have the option of getting out of your car and practicing social distancing. Either way, you will be able to hear the message as we give praise and worship together.
We are suspending our indoor Sunday morning services and Wednesday Bible Study sessions until further notice. We will be revisiting bringing our congregation indoors at a future date, but for now, we will be gathering outdoors on Sundays with the expectation of good weather and a great opportunity to fellowship with hearty greetings and wonderful conversation while practicing social distancing.
All video messages and live stream content can be reviewed on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page and through links here at akronalliance.org. Our previous messages and text summaries online along with audio of our sermon messages and Sunday school classes are also available here at akronalliance.org. Select the Sermons/Audio tab under Links from our menu.
Akron Alliance Fellowship will operate in the interest of providing a live or online sanctuary of worship that is committed to the safety of our church members and the general public. We implore all of our church members and visitors to continue to follow safe practices to prevent spread of the virus or any illness and to please stay home if you are ill or experiencing symptoms of illness, including a regular cold or the flu. If you want us to pray for you, your health or for any situation or circumstance, please send us a note at email@example.com or call 330.376.4654. We are always here for you.
Church Members: If you are home bound or need assistance, please call and we can help you or bring whatever you are in need of to your doorstep. Pastor Gus Brown has also asked that if you still want to contribute your weekly offering to please mail it to the church. If you prefer to drop off your offering, you can do so at the church Monday through Friday between 12:00 PM and 2:00 PM, and every Sunday between 10:30 AM and 12:00 PM at the church building’s main entrance. We ask that you practice social distancing upon arrival in accordance to State of Ohio guidelines. The wearing of masks, at this time, is encouraged, but it is not a requirement.
God is more than able to deliver us through this time of uncertainty. We ask that all of you remain prayerful and mindful of your neighbors and your community. When we get together, whether online or in person, you are always welcome here at Akron Alliance Fellowship Church.
