Inviting All to Jesus, Following Him Together



  • Children’s Ministries:   ARCC believes each child in our church and community is a unique and precious creation of God and we wish to love and bless each child as Jesus did. Children’s Ministries, which includes everything from our Sunday morning programs (during the First Service) to special events, aims to do exactly that!  We look forward to having the opportunity to minister to your children and, should the LORD lead you to become a part of this church family, we look forward to partnering with you in seeing your children grow up to know, love, and serve Jesus.   Our excellent part-time Children’s Ministry Director is Mrs. Svitlana Kovalev.
