Quick Tips for your First Visit

If are planning to visit below are a few quick tips that we hope will enhance your time with us on Sunday. First, stop by the Welcome Table  in the entry way. There you will find a campus map and additional information about ARCC.

  • Sunday morning Children’s Ministry: WE LOVE KIDS and we want them to have fun and learn something from the Bible.  We want you to know that they are in good hands. All paid staff and  volunteers are screened and finger printed.      Our Nursery/Infants to 3’s room is staffed during both services (9:15-12:15). We  offer Children ministry for children ages 4 and up (through 5th grade) only during the first service. These children start with their parents handing them off to the teaching staff in our Children’s Ministry Wing D and E. Look for the sign to the right of the worship center entrance.   Kid’s Kits, full of crayons and paper to keep little hands busy,  are also available for children whose parent chooses to have them  stay in with them in worship, just ask an usher for one.
  • We celebrate The Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion on the first Sunday of each month. If you have made Jesus Christ Lord of your life (you need not be a formal member of the church), we invite you to examine your heart and participate in this celebration of Christ’s love, mercy, and sacrifice.
  • We invite everyone to participate in giving financially either by an offering before, during, or after the service or via your mobile devise.   Text 56316 and type in “offering” to use our online giving app.   Your financial gifts go to the Lord’s work through this local congregation.  Give as God leads you to give.
  • Service.  In the foyer there are a variety of clip boards promoting various service projects, life groups, or bible study groups.   Joining a group is a great way to make friends and gain a sense of belonging in the church.
