To our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Community and to All Visitors—
Thank you for your attendance with us in-person and online during this time as we #StaySafe and #StayPrayerful! We ask that each of our members and friends continues to do what is necessary to help everyone, as much as possible, get back to a greater sense of normalcy. We have now resumed our indoor worship service and we plan to continue with outdoor worship services (weather and temperature permitting) for the balance of this year.
Please stay tuned to this page and on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page for regular updates pertaining to our church schedule.
Our church schedule for Sunday, October 24: We will be exclusively online with Live Stream Sunday School at 9:30 AM EDT via Facebook Live on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Facebook page. After Sunday School, our family and friends in the Akron (OH) community can join us for praise music and a message at our church at 11:00 AM EDT. Our church address is 688 Diagonal Road, Akron OH. For the fall months, we will meeting indoors at this time unless otherwise noted. Please note that, for indoor sessions, we are still checking temperatures prior to entry. UPDATE: If there is a fever detected, you will be asked to sit outside the sanctuary for a few minutes prior to an additional temperature check. If you still have a fever, we will not permit entry for the service. Upon entry, we are recommending that everyone wears a mask indoors AND we are resuming the practice of social distancing at all times.
If we meet outdoors on the church grounds (in the parking area), we will provide advance notice.
Please expect the complete worship service to last approximately 90 minutes. We ask for all visitors to do what is necessary to remain comfortable as you meet and greet others. Remember that others may not be as comfortable as you are, and remain sensitive as you fellowship with them. Whether we meet indoors or outdoors, we recommend wearing a mask. For those who are still uncomfortable with gathering at church, we will provide the same sermon (pre-recorded) message online on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page. These messages will be available for viewing immediately after Sunday school, and are available for viewing or reference 24/7!
We have suspended our Wednesday Bible Study sessions at the church until further notice. There will be Bible Study lessons online for the remainder of 2021. Look for these during the second Wednesday of every month and for our new ZOOM Bible Study on the fourth Sunday of each month. Follow our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page for details and updates.
We ask that all of our church members and visitors to continue to follow safe, hygienic practices to prevent spread of any illness and to please stay home if you are ill or experiencing symptoms of illness, including a regular cold or the flu. We are also asking that if you have had recent contact with a person who has the COVID virus to stay home, as well. If you want us to pray for you, your health or for any situation or circumstance, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 330.376.4654. We are always here for you.
