To our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Community and to All Visitors—
Thank you for your attendance with us in-person and online! 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. With God’s help, He will see to it!
Please stay tuned to this page and our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page for regular updates pertaining to our church schedule.
Our church schedule for Sunday, June 4, 2023: We will be live in church and online with Live Stream Sunday School at 9:30 AM ET via Facebook Live on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Church Facebook page. For those of you in the Akron, OH community, we are meeting every Sunday morning at our church for Sunday school at 9:30 AM and our Worship Service at 10:45 AM. We’re located at 688 Diagonal Road, Akron OH.
In-person Church Activities:
Please expect the complete worship service to last approximately 90 minutes. If you are attending Sunday school, it will last approximately 45 minutes for the live portion of the session, and up to an additional 10 minutes will be devoted to questions and comments. We ask for all visitors to do what is necessary to remain comfortable as you meet and greet others. Keep in mind that others may not be as comfortable as you are; therefore, please be sensitive as you fellowship with them. Tithes and offerings are collected from a drop-box in the church entrance area (as we are not passing around a collection plate).
The first Sunday of the month is Communion Sunday. It follows the completion of the morning message. We have “bread and juice” kits that are only handled by the end user. Communion is a solemn practice reserved for all believers in Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 11:23-34).
On the second Sunday of the month, we schedule a Prayer Meeting in church at 5:00 PM. Check with us on second Sunday during our worship service to confirm.
We are continuing our Sunday afternoon Ladies’ Cell Group. The next session is Sunday, June 11 at 5:30 PM with the study “Faithful, Abundant, True: Three Lives Going Deeper Still” by Kay Arthur, Beth Moore and Priscilla Shirer. At the same hour, our Men’s Cell Group also meets.
Our Wednesday Bible Study sessions resume Wednesday, June 7, 2023 at The Red House (behind Akron Alliance), 569 Wildwood Avenue, Akron, at 6:15 PM. Free parking is available in the church parking lot.
For all in-person visits, 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!
Online Church Activities:
Every Sunday morning, for those who are unable to gather with us at church (or those who are outside of the Akron, Ohio area), we will have Live Stream Sunday School on our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page at 9:30 AM ET / 6:30 AM PT. These lessons will be available for viewing immediately after Sunday school, and are available for viewing or reference 24/7!
We are also providing Bible study lessons online. Look for these during the second Wednesday of every month (pre-recorded) and for our live ZOOM Bible Study on the fourth Sunday (afternoon) of each month. Follow our Akron Alliance Fellowship Facebook Page for details and updates.
