Funerals and Memorial Services

Due to COVID-19, additional limits on room capacities are being observed.

It is an honor for us to accompany families as they bid a loved one goodbye and honor and celebrate their memory and legacy.

Akron Memorial Service Venue & Church

Our Meetinghouse is an elegant and distinctive sanctuary. With gracefully curving wooden pews, sweeping gallery and exquisite stained glass windows it makes the perfect setting for large gatherings, seating up to 550 people. The Chapel provides a contemporary and open flexible-seating space for smaller, more intimate services of 80 people or less.

For more information, please download our brochure. Feel free to contact us to make an appointment with Senior Minister, Rev. Nanette Pitt, to begin planning the service. We look forward to supporting you during this time.

Please note: First Church’s clergy officiate all services of this active worshipping community. While we do officiate services for non-members, we do not rent out our sanctuary for services hosted by other churches, clergy, or officiants (excepting when, in special co-officiant circumstances such as an interfaith situation, our Minister invites participation).
