Friends In Faith


Friends In Faith is designed for anyone to come and enjoy a fun casual evening together in fellowship.  Parents are welcome to bring their kids, which typically disappear and entertain themselves while parents are able to have time to enjoy adult company.


Each month they come together for a potluck style dinner at different host homes.  There is a small discussion around a religious topic that typically relates back to everyday life.

Ladies Night Out

This group dines together on the third Monday of the month at a local restaurant. Each month we collect money or items to give to charity.

The Breakfast Bunch

For helping people in a pickle

Members and friends come together for breakfast on the first Thursday of each month for brunch! We meet at a local restaurant for food and fellowship while we collect pocket change for Pastor to share with people in need.

Spring Family Fun

 During the Lenten Season we offer a family fun event for children and their parents.  The event focuses on the true meaning of Easter, and encompasses activities that younger family members will enjoy.  Activities in past years have included crafts, pretzel making and an Easter egg hunt.  Please join us this spring for fun that the entire family will enjoy!

In October, another family fun event occurs. Last year, our focus was on “Shine Your Light!” Children (and their parents, if they choose) are invited to come in costume and enjoy crafts, a movie, games, chili, and a time of treats (no tricks here!)  Weather permitting, we invite anyone who would like to participate to join us in the parking lot for a time of trunk or treating! Children always enjoy this safe way of displaying their costumes and receiving treats.

Breakfast with Santa

On the first Saturday in December, we invite the community to join Santa from 9 am to 11 am in our Family Life Center.  A full breakfast is served and children may have their photo taken with Santa.  We provide crafts and games for the children to enjoy.  Admission to this event is free with the donation of a new toy that will be given to A Community Christmas in order to provide joy and peace for families in need throughout Stark County. Breakfast with Santa is always a well-attended event and we recommend that you call or email the church to reserve your spot.
