Because Service Doesn't Stop on Sundays.

“I Make All Things New" | August Community Worship Series
This Sunday we meet at ACOB, all coming together for the last worship service in our building. Our summer tradition of worship in community continues. Three congregations celebrate holidays together, share customs and enjoy a community choir made up of singers from each church. In August, we take turns worshipping at each partner church on Sundays at 10 am. At the end of the month, we worship at Lubber Run Park amphitheater at 10 am followed by a picnic at the pavilion there. All are welcome! Invite a friend! Contact the office with any questions.
