Other Announcements

We want to remind you that our leadership team has a special gift for each of our families. We have secured access to RightNow Media, a Netflix-like database of Bible lessons, Christian children's videos, and more! This service is free to Antioch members and families. It can also be given to members of your extended family and your friends and neighbors as well. 

Church members who wish to explore the RightNow library may log-in as a guest using the email address RightNow@antiochcanton.org. The password is "guestguest". You can also check out the library by searching for "RightNow Media" in the App Store. If you like what you see, simply let us know by emailing the church (antiochchristian@gmail.com), and we will send you over a link so that you may create a more personalized account.  


We have a new section on our website to tell you about. This has been added to cut down on the number of emails sent out about things to be given away or sold by our members. Items will be listed here (at the bottom of the “Members” section of our website). Listings will be posted for 2 weeks and then removed. If you have something to give away/sell, please email your request to the church office (antiochchristian@gmail.com), and be sure to include an email address where you can be contacted. Check it out from time to time and see if you can find any treasures!


Nursery Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers for our Wednesday night nursery (6:30-7:30) and for our Sunday School nursery (9:30-10:30).

If you would like to be put on the rotation, please call or e-mail the church office.


Overseas Military Addresses Needed

If you know a loved one in the military (currently deployed), please e-mail the church office their address.
