We do church differently

Our mission is to create a safe place for people to come together, love one another, and seek God. We want you to feel welcome here no matter who you are, how you dress, where you’ve been, or how your past looks.

First Visit

Our location

Is this green building really a church?

AC3's green metal building may not look like a church from the outside. What counts is on the inside... not the inside of our building, inside our hearts.

Weekend Services

Sundays 10:00 AM
(holiday & summer hours differ; click for info)

Parking

We have free parking! Use our lot, park along 44th Avenue, and during Sunday morning services, we have additional parking at the Skate Inn lot directly across 44th.

Hospitality

You'll be greeted and offered a program on the way inside. If you have questions, ask anyone wearing a lanyard; they are available to help while giving you some space.

Inside & Service info

Building layout

Our lobby opens up after you enter the front doors. Grab a free drip coffee to your right or order your favorite drink at our Creek Espresso coffee stand during operating hours. Then enter the auditorium through the two doors to your left. We also open our Wedge Room if your little ones need a little ‘giggle and wiggle’ room during the service.

Find any seat that you like, just know it may be dark inside once service starts. Facing the stage, the band is on the left, the pastor will be in the middle, and skits will take place on the right.

A typical service

Most services include five main components: an opening key song, announcements, creative art elements, the weekend’s message, and a music and worship time. In total, our services usually last between 60-75 minutes. If you arrive after service starts, step carefully because the lights may be out.

Worship and social time

During worship, the band leads us through contemporary and traditional songs for about 20 minutes. There’s no wrong way to worship; feel free to stand, kneel, raise your hands, dance, sing, or just sit and watch. 

After the service, join as for a light snack (usually donuts and coffee) and meet someone new!


You are also invited to join us the next week, in what we call E-Groups. Here we have Extended conversations, deep dives, open discussions. It’s a place to build new friendships while unpacking the weekend’s message further.

You’re in the right place, we all have tough questions and even doubts from time-to-time. We have a saying at AC3, “get real, get healed.” We don’t shy away from the hard questions, we embrace them together.
