Sunday Morning: What to Expect?
Time: The Sunday morning worship service begins at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to come early or stay after to enjoy cookies, coffee and fellowship. The service is casual, so feel free to dress comfortably.
People: ACC is a very friendly group of people of various ages, nationalities, backgrounds and views. Many have commented on how welcoming and accepting ACC people are.
Children (birth - 5th grade): Kids love ACC on Sunday mornings! Children are encouraged to stay with parent(s) for the first part of the worship service. From there they are invited to enjoy age-appropriate games, songs and Bible lessons in the Community Kids area.
Youth/Teens (6th grade +): We believe there is great strength for a family to worship together. During our worship celebrations, our youth are encouraged to worship with their parents, peers and other adults. It is our goal to make our services engaging for all ages, and to encourage our youth to participate in a variety of ways.
Worship Style and Music: Worship at ACC is focused on Jesus. (Listen to a few thoughts on worship from Pastor John)
- MUSIC: The singing is a mix of older and newer songs with an acoustic, contemporary style. The music is also blended with various Scripture readings and times of prayer. Our aim is for the whole of the congregation to participate in worshiping Jesus, rather than observing a performance.
- COMMUNION: Every worship service is a time to remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, on the first Sunday of each month, ACC partakes in communion together. The elements (a small cracker and grape juice) are available to all who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, regardless of denomination.
- TITHES/OFFERING: Each Sunday we have the opportunity to give tithes and offerings as an act of worship. Visitors should not feel obligated to give financially.
Sermons: Messages at ACC are generally expository, meaning they seek to declare the point of a particular Biblical passage and then provide practical application for daily living. Typical sermon series cover a selected book of the Bible. All preaching at ACC ultimately points to Jesus Christ, the Lord and giver of life.
