Welcome to First Congregational Church

God is not waiting for us to be perfect.  God is waiting for us to listen.  And when we do listen for God he can talk to us through anyone, anywhere, and anything, at anytime.  We are a church made up of people, young and old, who believe the living Spirit of Christ is present in anyone, including you, and is dying to come out in the form of forgiveness, new life, and joy.

We are Akron's youngest-thinking church that also happens to be its oldest.  We were founded in 1833 and today we continue to grow in Christ's love as well as membership.

We worship on Sunday mornings and our true service is acted out the rest of the week.

We look forward to seeing you!  Remember, to God a thousand years is the blink of an eye and the laughter of a child is eternity.  Check us out; you will find a church full of men, women and children who know how to laugh together, and, when necessary, cry together.  And we try to do it all in the name of the living Spirit of Christ.
