COVID-19 Update & Church Re-Opening Survey
Dear ACC Family,
Austin-Travis County transitioned from Stage 3 to Stage 4 on June 15. The change was based on an increased level of hospital admissions due to Covid-19, and has resulted in a more restrictive level of recommended precautions. The details of the Stage 4 recommendations are here: austintexas.gov/news/austin-travis-county-enters-stage-4. At this time, the Covid-19 Response Team recommends that on-campus ministries remain closed. Additional or refined recommendations may be provided based on the results of the survey.
By His grace,
ACC's Covid-19 Response Team
1 John 2: 7-14
"To love one another" is God's command for his people since the beginning of time. By living it out, Jesus demonstrated what loving one another fully looks like. And when the church faithfully lives out this command, the light of Christ shines bright and chases out sin and darkness.

It's a collection of videos for bible studies, devotions, and teaching, and topics include marriage, parenting, apologetics, and youth/children specific series.

The Big Story: Exploring God's Global Purpose
How do the different books of the Bible connect to each other? Is there a grand theme through all of Scripture? Join us as we discover the global thread interwoven throughout the Old and New Testaments. We will peer through different lenses to see God's global purpose and the role we can play in His story.
Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
What role does emotional health play in spiritual maturity? How should we understand ourselves as emotional beings, created in the image of a God who has emotions? We picture the ideal Christian having a peaceful spirit, godly confidence, and loving relationships, but we ourselves may experience anxiety, sadness, insecurity, and anger. In this class we will examine biblical principles and truths that can guide us into lasting, beneath-the surface transformation.
Into the Promised Land
We will continue our journey through the Scriptures, specifically the books of Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. We will learn how God guides His people, gives them a home, and delivers them. Let's explore together some exciting Biblical narratives, marvel at God's faithfulness to His promises, and respond to His Word in faith and obedience.
