Change to Online Worship Only

At the time of this posting, the current COVID-19 statistics identify the infection rate in the Akron Metro area as “extreme” with a “severe” risk level. Therefore, the Governing Board has decided, with immediate effect, that First Church will temporarily:

  1. Offer only online worship through the remainder of January 2022 and until the COVID cases drop again and the Governing Board re-evaluates. The community is encouraged to join Sunday services virtually on our YouTube channel each week at 9am and 11am. Those who participate in worship will continue to attend in person, including readers, the Chancel and Handbell choirs, musicians, and clergy.
  2. Host no food and beverage service in the facility for all events until further notice. Arrangements may still be made for to-go food service.

Please note, these two temporary measures are not closing First Church or its facility. We continue to host groups, events, and activities in limited numbers (dependent on room size to allow for physical distancing), require masks indoors on the premises for all, and encourage regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitizer.
