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
Affected to be Effective
1 John 4: 7-21
The words "perfect" and "love" are used several times in this passage. John seems to say that God desires to perfect our love for Him and others by what His perfect love does in, and through, us. "Affected" is a verb, while "effected" is a noun. What is the effect in us when God's love affects us? What is going on, and what is God's end game?

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.
