This Sunday, August 2,  we will have one Worship service on the front lawn at CACC.  We will not have access or services inside the building.  


                                                                                   DRIVE-UP CHURCH

                                                                                   New Time: 9:30 am

                                                                                  BRING YOUR BIBLE!


Drive-up and park in front of the church or in the CACC/Pearsey’s parking lot.  You will turn to FM radio station 87.9 to listen to the service. You will, however, be able to hear the service from any parking lot.

If you like, you may bring lawn chairs to sit on the front lawn.  You will still need to wear a mask and abide by the 6’ social distancing.  If you bring chairs, please park in the back of the church or the north parking lot and walk around to the front lawn.  No reservations are needed.  The service is still being LIVE-STREAMED for those who choose to remain at home.  There will be no Afterthoughts on Sunday for the month of August.  So that the tech team can adjust for the service outdoors.


Kern County is on the state’s WATCH list.  They are watching the cases for COVID 19 hospitalizations and death rates.  All the hospital ICU’s are now full to capacity. But as of this printing, the church can safely have services outside the building.  Vulnerable groups may want to remain inside their cars or at home for safety reasons.


YES! Wednesdays Live-Stream Bible Study at 6:45 pm

The FIRST FIVE with Pastor Brody is daily on facebook and the church web page.
