The more we commit to living our lives after the example of Jesus, the deeper we go into faith. Like many journeys, there are distinct steps along the way. As a church, First United Methodist Church of Akron attempts to help all of us move through those steps to become the people God wants us to be.

Jesus Said Ministries

Every Saturday, First United Methodist Church of Akron hosts the "Jesus Said..." Ministries. This ministry is an evangelistic, non-profit, all volunteer Christian outreach street ministry that has been ministering downtown Akron since 1996.  The ministry helps to meet the spiritual and physical needs of the homeless and less fortunate men, women and children in the Downtown Akron, Ohio Community. Anyone is welcome. Worship is Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. Food is served from 9:45-10:30.

The last Saturday of every month it is our church’s commitment to bring and serve the food for Jesus Said. You may bring any dish you like, help set up, serve, and/or clean up. Please be here before 9:00 a.m. We gladly accept cash donations too!
