Where should I park?

Both Wedgewood and Akron First have parking lots attached to the building.

Accessible parking is available in the main parking lots at both Wedgewood and Akron First as well as in the circular driveway off of Wedgewood Dr.

Where should I go in?

At Wedgewood, there is a north and south entrance off of each parking area. At First Church, enter through the main northern doors closest to the parking lot.

Both churches are fully accessible buildings, with accessible parking, accessible restrooms, and elevators available.

What about music?

At our 9:30 AM service (Wedgewood), our worship service incorporates a blend of traditional and modern styles of music. Often, the first half of the service will have organ-led hymns while the second half will have band-led music through guitar, keyboard, and drums.

At our 11:15 AM service (First Church), our worship service embraces the traditional style, with hymns and special music throughout the service being organ and choir-led.

What about giving?

We do not take an offering during our services, but we extend an opportunity for individuals to give before/after the service as well as online. If you are new to church or worshiping with us for the first time, we don’t expect you to give. Giving is an opportunity for our regular attenders to respond to God through their generosity while investing in the mission of our local churches and global ministries.

What about my kids?

Wedgewood offers a children’s ministry for potty-trained toddlers through early elementary during our 9:30 AM service. 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.

Youth Group is available for teens and young adults on Sunday evenings.
