What should I expect?
We want your experience to be a great one, so we let you set your own pace. When you arrive at ACC as a First-Time Guest, please park in our First-Time Guest parking spaces, conveniently labeled and located near the main doors. Our smiling hosts will be ready to greet you as walk through the doors, and they’re available to answer any of your questions. The Café is open before, during, and after each service where you can grab a FREE cup of coffee.
Here are some other things you can expect:
• Engaging, energetic singing aimed at glorifying God and inspiring people.
• Relevant, practical Bible-based teaching that points to Jesus.
• Real people serving as pastors, leaders and staff.
• Environments that are safe, comfortable, and fun for your teens, kids, toddlers and babies.
• A diverse, “come as you are” family environment #YouBelongAtACC
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and don't really care about what you're wearing. We are a laid back church with a come as you are atmosphere. At ACC, you'll see everything from football jerseys to "Sunday best". Just come!
When are services?
We currently offer 3 weekend worship experiences on Sundays at 8:15 AM, 10:00 AM, and 11:45 AM. All are identical and last about 70 minutes. We offer Nursery (birth-2 years old) and Kids Ministry (3 years old-5th grade) during all 3 services. Our ACC Student Ministry (6th–12th grade) gathers on Sunday nights from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM, during the school year.
Where is ACC located?
Arundel Christian Church is located at 710 Aquahart Road in Glen Burnie. We're directly across the street from Bruster's Ice Cream in the old Harundale Cinema movie theater building.
Where do I park?
There are several guest parking spots directly in front of our main entrance just for you, our GUEST! Please let our parking host know if you are a first or second-time guest by turning on your flashers and they will direct you.
Where do I enter?
Our main entrance is hard to miss; either stop by our New Here Tent outside our building, or come inside to our Next Steps counter. Immediately following the service, join us for Arundel In 5 where you will receive a free gift and can answer any questions you may have.
What if I have questions?
Once inside our church building, we have a Host Team (identifiable by the lanyard name tags around their necks) that are ready to greet you and help you with anything you need. Have a question? Need directions? Want a tour? Just let them know! We are a very friendly church, so no worries there!
Where do my kids go?
We have our ministry for kids from birth-5th grade called ACC Kids. Near our Auditorium entrance, there is a doorway painted with a colorful mural. This will lead you to our ACC Kids area upstairs. There you will find our check-in stations and ACC Kids Volunteer Hosts to help you find your way through the check-in process. Click here to learn more about Kids Ministry and our commitment to safety and security.
Where do my teenagers go?
Our student ministry (6th–12th grade) gathers on Sunday nights at 6:00 PM during the school year for an experience designed just for them. Students gather on our third floor called The Loft (an elevator is located at the end of our main hallway, follow the signs). During the Sunday morning services, 6th-12th grade students join the adults in the Auditorium, or serve throughout our other ministries. Click here for more information on ACC Students Ministry.
What do your worship services look like?
Our services are designed to last approximately 70 minutes. Through study and worship, you can expect to learn rich, deep, and even life-changing ideas about God, Jesus, and the Bible. Since the Bible discusses real people facing real life problems, we search out what lessons their experiences have for us today. Expect to laugh, enjoy an engaging message, and hear our worship band lead us in songs written about and to Jesus. During this time, feel free to participate as little or as much as you feel comfortable -- if you prefer to just observe, you will not stand out doing so!
How do I get connected?
We offer several next steps for you to get connected at ACC. You can find them here. On Sunday mornings we ask that you scan the QR code on our Connect Card, located in our seat backs, and we will get in touch with you within the week. Typically, this will include an invitation to our Starting Point lunch that happens the first Sunday of the month following our last service. Starting Point is where you meet pastors and staff in a casual setting, get free lunch (with childcare provided), and it's the best way to learn more about ACC and discover if we are the best "home" for you and how you can get involved. You can register for Starting Point here.
