Location & Worship Services

We are excited to be able to have you to join us for in-person and online worship services!

Starting July 1, 2023, Wedgewood United Methodist Church will be closely partnering in ministry with The First United Methodist Church of Akron. In addition to the combined ministries occuring between our churches, Pastor Joe and Pastor Ja’Alycia (who will join Wedgewood as Associate Pastor on July 1, 2023) will serve as co-operative ministers at both Wedgewood UMC and First UMC of Akron.

To facilitate their leadership of both churches, our service times at Wedgewood will shift to 9:00 AM (Traditional Style Service) and 12:00 PM (Contemporary Style Service) beginning July 2023.

If you are looking for a location closer to you, consider joining us for worship at our sister church in downtown Akron!

Traditional Style Service

Sundays at 9:30 am

In-Person and Online

Our Traditional Worship Service takes us back to our roots and dives deeply into the rich history and impacting symbolism of the founding generations of United Methodism. We explore worship through hymns, piano, organ, and traditional elements of communal gathering. Join us as we explore together how to better become the united body of Christ that we are called to be in the world today.

Contemporary Style Service

Sundays at 11:30 am


A change from the tradition, our Contemporary Worship Service offers a different and new perspective on worshiping our unchanging God. We explore worship through guitar, drums, keyboard, and other instruments as we come together to praise, pray, grow and fellowship together. Join us as we interpret new ways of rethinking church!

Sunday School

Sundays at 10:30 am

Intergenerational Adults

Our adult Sunday School class meets in between worship services to study devotionals, discuss that day’s sermon, and to process current events through a biblical lens.

Sundays at 11:30 am

Toddlers through Early Elementary

Sunday School is provided during our 11:30 am worship service for young children that are potty trained.

Your children will join you for the first part of the worship service and are later dismissed to their Sunday School class during the service.
