The beginning of something new can be truly exciting. And considering the trials of this past year, it’s likely we’ll come flying out of the gates in 2021. But often, we start a new venture with much more energy than we finish with—it’s challenging to continue at the same pace! Maybe still, we can approach this next season as one to maintain a healthy endurance, to continue striving for safety, growth and betterment for all – the way Jesus showed us long ago.

Christmas Eve 2020
Our Candlelight service in Akron commemorating the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Where the Love Light Gleams
Seeing through the eyes of a Shepherd on the night a new King was born offers an important perspective to our approach this holiday season. Inside the book of Luke, Pastor Rick shares three notable takeaways from this well-known, yet often overlooked part of the Christmas story.
If Only in My Dreams
2020 has been unlike any other season in our lives. And while the holidays can already be a lonely time for some, it will be just as much for so many more this year. But the hope and love of Jesus Christ offers us a familiar place of belonging from anywhere we come from. So even if it’s just “in our dreams,” we can all be home for Christmas.
Presents on the Tree
On the night when Jesus was born, three wise men came bearing gifts–brought specifically to show support of (who they believed was) their future leader. This Sunday, we find out what those gifts meant at that time in history, the value of what they’d be now and learn how we can join the celebration of the newborn king.
Shaped to Serve
You were created on purpose, for a purpose! Straight from the heart of Jesus, we were never meant to show up to be served…it’s always been God’s intention for us to serve others. In what area of your life are you pouring out your spirit to another?
You were Created to Become like Christ
If you’re ready step-up in your walk with God, why not start with the fundamentals of spiritual growth? The methods God uses to get our attention or form us into the person we’re meant to be are most often difficult to navigate. So, today we talk about the tools that God uses to help influence our spiritual character.
Made for Worship

Could this be a season of opportunity in spite of all the obstacles? Because change is inevitable, but growth is optional. What intentions are you taking to be open toward what God has for us in this new season of life?
What distracts us from truly following Jesus? Being committed to God, our creator allows us to give up all that we are, in order to receive all that we can become. Dig deeper within yourself and God’s word to figure out what perspective is keeping you from seeing His bigger picture.
