An important message from your
Pastoral Search Committee:

The Pastoral Search Committee is extremely excited to announce that God has sent us a candidate to present to the congregation for our next settled pastor here at Church in the Acres. This candidate is Reverend Christopher Lister currently of Grace Baptist Church of Blue Bell, Blue Bell, Pennsylvania.

Pastor Chris will be coming two separate weekends for us to meet him. On June 4, 2016, he will tour the church and our city and meet with leaders of our church. On June 5, 2016, he will preach at both Celebration 1 and 2 and join us for our yearly picnic. On June 11, 2016, we will be having an open house at the church for people to come meet him and he will also preach on Sunday morning, June 12, 2016, at Celebration 1 at 9:45. Immediately after the service, a business meeting will be called to vote to call him as our next settled pastor.

Please join us in welcoming Pastor Chris to our church. You are welcome to reach out to him via Facebook and leave him a welcome message.

A link to Pastor Chris' bio page and prior sermon can be found under "Our Staff", or you can click here.

This is not all we believe, but we realize as you consider visiting a church youíd sure like to know what it is they really believe and we hope this gives a snap shot of who we are. The What We Believe page can give you a more detailed explanation of each of these points.
