SERVICE TIMES

Sunday Worship Service

  • 10:30a
    This service is to Akron what the 9:00a service is to WORD WARRENSVILLE. It is upbeat and lively, and often features our Creative Arts Team ministering through drama, dance, and/or mime. And the word is consistent! Dr. Vernon preaches the same message at WORD Akron/Canton that he teaches at the Cleveland campuses.

Wednesday Believer’s Night Bible Study

  • 6:00p
    This service is the Akron version of WORD WARRENSVILLE’S 7:15p Bible Study. Tailored to the believer who wants in-depth teaching, this service lasts a little longer than Power Hour Bible Study and the instruction is more extensive.




OUTREACH & COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

The Outreach/Community Impact Ministry always has an array of resources available on site after every service.  These resources include information on educational programs, food service programs, social service programs, resources for ex-felons, job readiness programs, housing information (i.e. utility support programs, mortgage support, and rental assistance programs).  Be sure to frequent the Community Impact area often to get up-to-date information on resources that may be helpful to you or your loved ones.



COUNSELING & SMALL GROUPS

The purpose of the Counseling and Small Groups Department at “THE WORD” CHURCH is to meet the needs of hurting people. We offer professional counseling, pastoral guidance, spiritual guidance, and a variety of small groups to foster the emotional, mental, and spiritual development of our congregation, the Greater Cleveland community, and the Body of Christ.

  • GRIEF RECOVERY Are you having trouble resolving past issues, or moving forward from the loss of a loved one, job, or something else that was dear to you?
