Advent Worship

Sundays at 11:00 a.m.
Christmas Eve at 6 p.m.

The word Advent means coming, and during the four Sundays of Advent we prepare ourselves anew for the celebration of the coming of Jesus as the Savior of the world! On each Sunday of Advent, we light another candle in the Advent wreath that represents a theme of the Christmas season, and on Christmas Eve we light the Christ Candle in the center of the wreath. We invite you to join us during this wonderfully significant spiritual season of the year as we remember why God sent his Son and celebrate his great love for each one of us.

On Sunday, December 11, our Sanctuary Choir will present Three Gifts—Our Christmas Offering, a special musical worship expereince.

On Christmas Eve, we will enjoy our special candlelighting serving which will begin at 6 p.m.

Everyone Needs a Church...ACBC Greeting06

To answer the questions of life . . .

Questions like, “Who am I?” “What’s my purpose?” “What is God really like?” and “Why do bad things happen?” Jesus Christ and His church are uniquely qualified to answer life’s most basic questions.

To share life’s happiness...

The precious moments of life are meant to be shared: the beginning of new life together in marriage, the birth of a new child, the baptism of new believers... these milestones, plus the joy of simple pleasures, are enhanced by the community of a loving congregation.

To help face tragedies...

Everyone faces trouble in life: sorrows, disappointments, sickness, death. Needed support and comfort flows freely from those who share a common faith. How much we need one another in times like these!

To teach about God and the purposes He has for us...

Survey after survey reveals an overwhelming belief in God. But what is He like? How do we know Him? God has answered those questions through the Bible, the special book that is the guide for the church.

To share God’s message and help those in need...

We can do more together than we can do alone. God has always called together a community of believers to help one another and to spread the good news of Jesus Christ. His message can bring healing to a hurting world. Yes, everyone needs a church, and at Ancient City Church, we would love to be yours!
