Discover God's Goodness, Trust God's Wisdom and Share God's Kindness

About Us

CAC is a family of people who want to discover, trust and share God more tomorrow than we do today.  We are a group of everyday people who believe that our personal relationship with God has changed us and that He can change the people and circumstances around us as well.  We want to see more and more people become part of God’s kingdom and catch a glimpse that His kingdom is at hand even now as the Holy Spirit is working.

You’ve come to the right place to find out more about us – many of your questions can be answered on this website, the rest we’re happy to answer by phone or e-mail.  We invite you to attend a worship service to learn what we can’t convey on a site like this.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why doesn’t everyone dress up for church?

The Bible teaches that God looks at the heart of a person, not his or her outward appearance. We wear casual dress to remind ourselves to focus on keeping our hearts right with God.

What does CAC do for kids?

We have an exciting ministry for kids ages 3 through 5th grade called Kingdom Kids.  They meet Sundays at 10:00 AM throughout the school year for a fun time of getting to know God in way that kids can understand.

What do you have for teens?

Our PLUGGED-In Youth meetings for students in 6th-12th grade happens on the first and third Sundays of the month throughout the school year for fun, teaching and friendship.

What’s the big deal about Growth Groups?

The first church in the New Testament book of Acts met in small groups even more than they worshipped in big groups.  Growth Groups are the part of our ministry in which we learn to trust God’s wisdom together.
