As we do our part in slowing the spread of the Covid-19 virus and keeping the most vulnerable among us safe, all in-person church ministries, programs, and building use are canceled until further notice.
However, we are still the AACRC, even though we’re in the middle of a serious pivot. While ministry looks different, we encourage you to please continue to be active in prayer, in tithing, and in keeping in touch with each other. We want to continue to worship together, grow together, and serve together in this season, even though it might look very different! You are invited to stay connected to the ways we can do this by visiting our blog or signing up for our weekly electronic newsletter or visiting our new YouTube channel. Note that staff will continue to pick up the mail and check the phone messages daily.
Flexible, participatory, in-home worship services that center us around Christ will be shared here every week and also in our weekly email.
Grace and peace.
|April 5, 2020 – In-Home Worship
I Samuel 16:1-13; Matthew 21:1-11 – Worship Liturgy
Songs & Pastor Ryan’s Message (YouTube) -LIVE at 8:30am
We as Christ’s body can still worship together in spirit. Watch this space for an at-home liturgy and meditation every week.
One of our Sunday rhythms is a time of offering, giving back to God with our time, talents, and resources. Even though we can’t be together, we still rely on your tithes and donations to help our various ministry partners, including Hope Clinic, Hesed Community Church, Friends in Deed, and our missionaries. You can give your tithes and offerings using the My Well Giving app, My Well web-based giving, mailing a check to the church, or setting up recurring donations through your bank’s bill pay.
Hear about our Lent theme…
