Serve

When the Apostle Paul paints us a picture of how the church is supposed to function he compares it to a body with many different parts, all of which play a crucial role. It is a beautiful picture that both affirms the uniqueness of every person, and reminds us of the great responsibility God has entrusted to each of us. Imagine what God could do if everyone actually believed this and chose to get involved. We think that would be pretty sweet! Below are some ways you can serve our church. All are valuable and play a role in the mission and movement of Jesus.

Ministry to Refugees

In the Akron area alone, there are over 1,000 Karen refugees coming from the politically war-torn country of Burma.
