Sunday Gatherings

Worship Gatherings are held at 8:15am and 10:00am. Our early service is smaller, scaled down and traditional, and meets in the Fireside Room downstairs, while our main service meets upstairs at 10:00am (keep reading below for details on each service) – We also have several classes that meet at 9:00am. These include our FRIENDSHIP CLASS – a ministry for adults with special needs, and a YOUTH Sunday School class, which meets in addition to Wednesday Night Youth Group.

WHERE: The Church is located at 1211 M Ave.

PARKING: There are two parking lots available. The upper parking lot is off M Ave, and the lower parking lot is behind the church off N Ave.

WHAT TO EXPECT:
1. You will be greeted and handed a bulletin
2. The worship ministry will lead us through some songs, inviting you to worship God through music.
3. The church will then be given an opportunity to worship God by celebrating communion.
4. One of our ministers will talk about what the Bible has to say about real life.
5. There will be a closing song, and you will be dismissed.
6. You will be honored and respected.

After the service, you are free to leave, though we warmly invite you to stick around the “Welcome Home” center. Enjoy getting to know some new people over a cup of coffee or tea.

WHAT TO WEAR: Come as you are, or feel free to dress up. You will find a lot of jeans, a lot of slacks, some dresses and some shorts. God is not concerned about your dress; he’s concerned about your heart.

First Service:

We offer an 8:15am gathering (except during the summer) that is smaller, more intimate, and meets in the Fireside Room downstairs. While the preaching is the same for both services, the music is scaled-back, and is more traditional, utilizing hymns and praise choruses, depending on the song leader.

Second Service:

Our 10:00am gathering is larger and takes place in the main auditorium. Music is usually led by a full worship band, and while we try not to cater to any particular style, (see WORSHIP ARTS to read about our philosophy on this), one would likely describe our second service as contemporary, but accessible – not overly edgy. We employ the use of hymns and newer songs as we see fit.

Both worship gatherings are intended to provide environments where you can join a community of believers and worship / fellowship with them. We invite you to join either, recognizing that we are one body, sharing the same Lord and the same purpose together. Click HERE for more details on our Worship philosophy, ministry and style.

Anyone is welcome to attend on Sundays. Our gatherings generally follow a basic “service order,” but we always leave room for the impromptu and unexpected. We like to think of each gathering as a journey – a journey that anyone can connect with no matter where they’re at in life. Whether you come with love, joy, and laughter, or sorrow, grief, and pain, you are welcome here. It is our hope that you will experience the love of God through worship, through teaching, or through the people you encounter at ACC.
