Park where ever is most convenient for you. There are two entrances. On Sunday mornings please use the east entrance under the awning. During the week if you have any office inquiries use the south entrance. Handicapped parking spaces are located near either entrance.

WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS? IS THERE CHILDCARE?
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS? IS THERE CHILDCARE?

The Nursery is TEMPORARILY not available at this time DUE TO COVID.

Every week the nursery is available for children newborn to three years old during each Sunday morning service. We have added a "pager system", so after you check your child in, you will receive a pager to take with you into church or Sunday School. This, first and foremost, adds to your child's safety. It also really adds to the communication between nursery workers and parents. If your child should need you during the service, we can simply press a button and your pager will silently notify you. For more details about Sunday School classes for various ages, what time and room they are located in, see "What's a typical Sunday morning like?"

WHAT TYPES OF SERVICES ARE OFFERED?
WHAT TYPES OF SERVICES ARE OFFERED?

We believe that real worship comes from your heart. Although it matters more what attitude you come to church with, we want to provide you with the best opportunity possible to have your heart in a place to really worship. That being said, we offer two types of worship services. One being more of a contemporary service, which includes more upbeat music, usually including a full band with electric guitar and drums. There is also a more traditional service with a piano and voices leading hymns & praise choruses. We will be alternating worship teams each week for the time being. So both services will be either traditional or contemporary.

WILL I BE EXPECTED TO GIVE MONEY?
WILL I BE EXPECTED TO GIVE MONEY?

During each service there is a time to worship God through the giving of tithes and offerings. This is an act of worship and obedience to God for our members and friends (who consider CAC their church home). As a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give.
