Sunday morning we begin our day with Sunday school classes for every age group at 9:00am. Well, actually the first 15 to 20 minutes is usually filled with catching up on the week with each other. These groups finish up their time about 10:15 in order to transition to our main worship gathering.
855 Rothrock Road, Akron OH 44321
CrossPoint Alliance Church is located at the corner of South Cleveland-Massillon Road and Rothrock Road in the “Montrose” region of Akron.This intersection is a couple of hundred feet north of the northbound exit (#135) of I-77, and about 1 mile south of Market Street (Rt. 18) in the heart of Montrose.
The main entrance to the church is pretty obvious from the church parking lot. The main entrance brings you directly into our spacious lobby which leads you to into our multi-purpose sanctuary. There will be greeters in the lobby to help answer your questions and direct you to the places you want to get to.
For Your Children
During the 9:00 hour there is a Sunday school class for every age. There will be someone in the lobby to help direct you to the proper room for your child’s age and to our two adult Bible study.
We provide continuous care between 9 and noon for children up to 4 years of age in the childcare suite. Children kindergarten and older will attend the worship service with their parents at 10:30. Children in kindergarten through grade 4 are dismissed to attend Children’s Church(room 4) about halfway through the worship gathering. The last Sunday of the month when we invite children up through grade 6 to leave the gathering and attend Kids in Missions, this ministry has a specific focus on teaching kids about global missions.
What do people wear?
You will see a few people in suits and ties, while others are dressed casually. Our focus is not on what a person wears, but whether people are connecting with God and others.
What is your “style” of music?
Probably the most frequent of frequently asked questions has to do with style of worship. Our intention is to “facilitate” (make it easy) for people to connect with God. We have a very broad cross section of life stages in our church family and therefore we have a worship style that integrates and blends together traditional as well as contemporary music. The foundation of our music selection is God’s Word and the heart of the worshipper.
Will I be singled out as a visitor?
We make a general welcome of visitors in the service, but we don’t ask them to stand and introduce themselves or anything like that. We’ll give you opportunity to request our Welcome Brochure by letting our ushers know of your interest. But if you aren’t comfortable doing that you can also pick up one at the Welcome Center.
What denomination are you?
We are a part of an “alliance” of more than 2000 churches in the US who are passionately committed to Jesus Christ and proclaiming the good news to unreached people around the globe. This “alliance” is called, The Christian and Missionary Alliance. What draws us together into this association is not so much doctrinal distinctives, which so often characterize “denominationalism.” Rather it is a missional focus and an emphasis on the sufficiency of Jesus Christ for the total person. More information about The C&MA can be found at www.cmalliance.org.
How often is communion served?
We celebrate communion the first weekend of the month. All who have given their lives to Christ and are living in obedience to Him are invited, after examining themselves, to take of the bread and the cup in remembrance of Christ.
What form of baptism do you administer?
We believe that the Bible teaches that when a person has made a personal commitment to Christ that they should be baptized as an initial act of obedience to Christ and to proclaim their faith in him.
