"Therefore I...implore you to walk in a manner worth of the calling with which you have been called: with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace"

(Ephesians 4.1-3)


Our desire is for all to come to a saving knowledge of Christ, to partner and worship with each other as a community of believers, and to provide opportunities to serve those around us in mercy and love.


To meet the spiritual needs of those in our congregation, to prepare them for the Christian life, and to equip them for Christian service, we offer a handful of opportunities (and we hope to offer more in the near future):



Bible Study: before worship, we hold a time for studying the Bible in a conversational style. Typically we will work through a selected biblical book, but occasionally we will study a topic or "issue" that is relevant for us as Christ's representatives in the world.

Worship: this is effectively the backbone for all of the other ministries at ACC. The intent of each service is to worship and glorify God, to learn (through Bible-based sermons) about the salvation offered in Jesus, and to be renewed in mind and heart by the power of the Spirit so that we may serve God's kingdom.



Both  are working their way through a small collection of Paul's letters known as the Prison Epistles (i.e., Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon). While these letters were written to address specific needs in specific churches from nearly 2000 years ago, the truths and lessons and counsel they possess still apply to the church today. Age has not robbed them of their ongoing relevance.

The focus of the current study is an eight-week study of Paul's letter to the Colossians and one to Philemon.
