COVID-19 Update & Church Re-Opening Survey
Dear ACC Family,
Thank you all who participated in the survey by the 7/8 deadline. Our church's COVID-19 Response Team has completed the analysis of the survey results. Based on the results, as well as the most up-to-date decisions made at all levels of government, organizations and school districts, the COVID-19 Response Team believes no time-definite plan for reopening on-campus ministries should be provided at this time, although some on-campus ministries may resume at some point this year upon cautious and diligent consideration. Furthermore, the team recommends that all ministries plan for an online version where practical for the fall term, that continues through the end of 2020. For more details see acc.church/acc-reopen-status. The report from the Covid-19 Reopening Survey is available here acc.church/survey-results. The Covid-19 Response Team thanks all for their valuable input, patience, and prayers.
By His grace,
ACC's Covid-19 Response Team
The Feet of Peace
Too many voices have filled the airwaves of life, many seeking to destroy what God had originally created in his image. But, the death and resurrection of Jesus offers humanity the peace that can be found in relationship with God. The church is called to be the feet of this gospel, to bear witness of Jesus as the peace offering. We are called to be ready at all times to testify to this gospel of peace.

Crafting Your Personal Rule of Life
As a trellis guides the growth of a vine, so a rule of life can provide structure and direction for personal spiritual growth. This class will help you take a close look at your God-given gifts, talents, and desires, and discern His plan and mission for you. Accompanied by Stephen Macchia’s book of the same title, you will have an opportunity to develop and fine tune your spiritual, physical, relational, and missional priorities.
A Kingdom Provided
In this class we will explore selected narratives in I & II Samuel and I Kings, focusing on the Israelites' search for a king and the flawed people who served in that position. Join us as we dig deeper into God's Word and draw connections among the chronicles of Scripture, the stories of our lives, and the grand story of the perfect King, Jesus Christ.
