PHASED RETURN PLAN

PHASED RETURN PLAN

PHASE ONE

CURRENT PHASE

___

We are still gathering on Sunday morning to worship together in person because our local and state governments are still advising that it is safe to do so with limited capacity. As of November 9, 2020 we are altering our guest capacity in the worship center at one service to be 50 people. We are also offering a service in the student ministry room for 25 people that will allow you to see and connect with others while taking part in a digital service of watching our live streamed services in the student ministry room. One of our primary concerns continues to be how to protect our community and loved ones from potential health risks associated with COVID-19. Below you’ll find our plan of gathering for worship at ACC. If you have questions please contact Pastor Chad or Pastor Nate, their emails are located in the FAQ section below.
