Sunday Mornings

children’s sunday school class

At 10 am, children meet for Sunday School Class with Becky Stults. Becky teaches “Godly Play”. Godly Play is a creative and imaginative approach to Christian nurture. In most education, children are told what God has done. In Godly Play, children discover who God is. At 11 am, children join adults for worship and mid-service go with one of our volunteers to children’s church.

morning worship service

We worship together on Sunday mornings at 11 am in our sanctuary. When we say all are welcome to Christ’s table, we mean all. Each week, our worship services include songs, a sermon, and communion. We try to incorporate rich tradition and refreshing creative pieces in our worship experience. We hope you will join us. We are saving a place for you.

Our Team

 
DR. REV. ALAN LOBAUGH Senior Minister   Alan’s passion has always been to walk with people on their journeys of faith, discovery, joy, and pain. His hope and prayer is that no one would feel alone in whatever they face. That’s one of the refreshing experiences of ACC. This is a family. We care deeply for the world and for each other. As their pastor, Alan feels called to help them explore the depth of God’s love. One of his friends often says, “God’s love is for real. And God’s love is for you.” Alan’s goal is to make sure everyone experiences God’s love that fully - even if, especially if, someone has been hurt by “church” before.  Alan earned his Masters of Divinity at Phillips Theological Seminary in Enid, OK, and his Ph.D. in Counseling at the University of North Texas. He and his wife Dana grew up in church, and they have three wonderful adult children. They love to travel and occasionally remodel rooms in our home.
