First Grace is an interesting part of the Body of Christ. If you are looking for a quiet congregation, you may not care for us. We take the teachings of Jesus seri0usly--seriously enough that we don't spend a lot of time debating what we should do next--we just get on with it.
We do not believe persons with HIV should be shunned by society or the by church; we provide confidential testing, support, and prevention services through the Akron AIDS Collaborative.
We no not hide from the uncertainties which our brothers and sisters in Third World Countries must face. Instead, we provide a market for their hand-crafted items to be sold through our Market Path Fair Trade Store located in Copley.
Most importantly, we do not think or pretend that we are perfect people. We know that we are struggling to continue the ministry of our Christ in this 21st Century. We invite you to join with us in the struggle.
We will not meet again for worship until all are safe from Covid 19.
First Grace is a safe place for all people to worship
regardless of race, creed, age, cultural background, or sexual orientation.
