First United Methodist Church
The oldest Methodist congregation in Akron constructed this new 37,000 sq. ft. religious complex to replace a facility that was destroyed by fire. The Congregation’s past history and saved artifacts from the original structure have been blended into a contemporary design that not only honors the church’s heritage, but also its mission and place in the urban context. Interior detailing and the integration of a new handcrafted pipe organ are key features in the design.
