News & Events

Summer Family Nights

We conclude this Wednesday with a picnic and water games at 6pm up on the hill.

All-Church Camping Trip

This year our annual camping trip will be nearby at West Branch State Park in Edinburg July 29-31. The church has reserved 20 sites and you can claim one today by talking to Lisa Gerren. Once they’re gone, they’re gone; so don’t delay! There are only a handful left.


Summer Ministry Trip

This summer our youth group will be helping 4 organizations here in the Portage & Summit County area that work in practical food & housing ministries. We’ll be lodged at The Chapel in Akron from July 5-9 and will visit First Glance urban ministry in Akron, The Center of Hope in Ravenna, The Legget School in Akron, and the Haven of Rest. Sometimes it’s good to see what folks are doing in God’s name right in our own backyard. 


Cinematheology is Coming!

Every year we sponsor a summer series combining movies and theology. We take a look at some popular movies and evaluate their message based on God’s word. You can nominate a movie that you think would be a good match for this by using the tear-off form to the right. Think about movies in the last year and think about inviting someone you know for the series!

This Week's Sermon

Today in the Word: Putting the Old Covenant to Rest (Hebrews 10)

 So all the sacrifices before Jesus came were only replicas of his once-for-all sacrifice. So after Jesus, no more sacrifices are necessary. He did it all, putting the whole system to rest. So now we just draw near to God with a c lear conscience and encourage each other to stay on the path. We spur each other on toward love and good deeds.

Summer Schedule

There will be no first hour classes for the month of August during Cinematheology. Classes for all ages will resume in September at 9:15am every Sunday.


ABFs @ 9:15 am

During our 9am hour we have two Adult Bible Fellowships that meet. SALT is for younger people (roughly up to 30 or so) who are in college or early in their careers. The other group, Seeking God’s Story, is in the more established stages of life. Either group is open to marrieds, singles, or married who come single. Both focus on informal discussion-oriented Bible study and application to real life.

Sunday School Teacher Needed

 If you are interested in teaching the children’s classes during first hour please talk to Pastor Dave or email him at
