We love to celebrate our cross cultural workers and to spend time with them when they are home! We currently have one of our Grace families home from Chad, Africa (names purposely omitted) and we will be hosting our first Coffee with Culture on April 7th at 6:45pm in Classroom D for those that would like to visit and hear about the last 2 years of ministry and the direction of our missionaries moving forward!

Part of what they do when they resettle refugees in Akron is to furnish each apartment with the basic items that a household would need to get started. They currently have a great need for new or gently used queen sheet sets and comforters! If you or your life group would be willing to donate one or more of these items could you drop them off at the church office or email Christian Benadum at


Student Ministries would love have people on their team who could come and hang out with high schoolers during Merge on Wednesday nights or middle schoolers during the Sat 6:45pm/Sunday 9am and 11:15am services. You would be able to get to know the kids, help as needed and provide support to the student ministries team. If you are interested you can email Chelsea Gehring at
