This Sunday, October 18,  we will have one Worship service on the front lawn at CACC.  We will not have access or services inside the building.  


                                                                                   CHURCH ON THE LAWN

                                              New Time ------------------------->10:00 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 now in the state’s RED TIER for coronavirus transmission.  The tier system is based on the number of cases per 100,000 people.  Red Tier means the county can open businesses to 25% seating capacity indoors with modifications.  That includes places of worship or churches.  However, this Sunday we will still be meeting out on the lawn until a decision is made to make the transition. Vulnerable groups may want to remain at home or inside their cars to listen to FM 87.9


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.
