Freshwater Church has called Wadsworth, Ohio home for more than 80 years after first opening its doors to the community in 1932. Located 45 minutes south of downtown Cleveland and 20 minutes west of downtown Akron (depending on who is driving, of course), Freshwater has a deep conviction that people are yearning to connect with God, to know Him, so our ultimate goal is simple: to help people encounter Him. Time and again, we hear comments about how real the presence of God is during our services, and wherever the living God is present, powerful ministry follows. We have moved away from printing an order of service each week because we’ve found when God shows up, all our plans get blown up anyway.
Freshwater’s average age of 36 reflects the family-focused community of Wadsworth. All generations attend our church, from babies to grandparents and everyone in between, all together. We like it that way. There’s something about knowing someone who has lived a long time with God, who doesn’t get worked up about trials and suffering, and there’s something equally as inspiring about providing a safe place where the next generation of believers can spread their wings and release their God-given passions into this world.
We would love to have you come and visit. We’ve got plenty of room!
