Service & Justice

First Church has a strong commitment to being a partner in the pursuit of justice and equality for all. As a downtown Akron church, our members and friends work actively to engage social issues of poverty, racism and inequality facing many of our neighbors and community members.

Using the menu on the right, please read more about our initiatives and partner-programs and consider joining us in this vital work of hands-on ministry and advocacy following the example of Jesus who told us in Matthew 25:40: “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these, you did it to me.”
