All Are Welcome!

Christ Woodland is a friendly church north of the Wallhaven area on Akron's west side. The congregation's vision is to be "an all-inclusive, loving community of faith whose purpose is to make disciples of Christ through our teaching, our praying, our outreach, and our witness."

Now Worshiping In Person and Online

The Rev. Deborah Nees, pastor, leads the congregation in worship, both in person and online, each Sunday starting at 10:30 a.m. If you are able and comfortable doing so, you are welcome to join us in person as the service is shared with those in the pews and on Facebook. Those worshiping in person are reminded that face masks are voluntary although health safety protocols which include washing hands are encouraged. Those joining the live-streamed broadcast on Facebook are encouraged to sign in early and greet others.

Our theme for Lent is 'Living Inside Out.' Throughout this season, as we look inwardly concerning our relationship with God, we are encouraged to act outwardly to help others in need.

We celebrate Holy Communion the first Sunday of each month. If you are participating at home, please remember to assemble the elements, perhaps a piece of bread or cracker and some juice, ahead of time so you can celebrate Holy Communion with us during the worship service.

Please remember that tithes, offerings and donations from members and friends of the congregation help support the work of this faith community and can be may be dropped off as the congregation enters or leaves the sanctuary, sent to the church in check form, through our Facebook page (click or tap the "Shop Now" button) or by using the following link. As we worship and work in faith together, please consider and reflect on all God has given and what might be given in return.

A volunteer helps prepare our Food Pantry for clients.

Food Pantry Serves Our Neighbors

The Christ Woodland Food Pantry is open every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

Each week our Food Pantry assists dozens of local people. And we have seen the need grow significantly during the pandemic and the economic hardships that are accompanying it.

If you'd like to donate food, toiletries or other supplies to the pantry, please plan to drop them off at the church whenever the church office is open (see the church calendar). If you would prefer to have the committee members do the shopping, you can donate money to support the Food Pantry using our online donation form. Please be sure all donations are marked "for the food pantry." A big thank you to all who continue to support this important outreach ministry.

Studying 'The Chosen'

A study of The Chosen, a TV series, continues every Thursday at 10 a.m. The Chosen is the first multi-season, episodic series about the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth, centering on Jesus and the different people who met and followed him. Episodes can be viewed on Amazon Prime Video, Peacock or Netflix. For more information, please contact the church office.
