What to Expect
We would love for you to visit Astoria Community Church! Here’s what you can expect at our weekly worship services.
ACC meets to worship God every Sunday (9:30am & 11:15am) at the Astoria Center of Israel Synagogue. This is a beautiful building that has been part of our neighborhood for over 75 years. Yes, it might seem a bit strange to have a Christian worship service in a Synagogue, and we are very grateful to the ACI congregation for allowing us to rent such a great space on Sundays in the heart of Astoria, Queens, NY.
There is no dress code at ACC, so come worship God however you feel comfortable. Most of the congregation dresses pretty casually, but a few of us “dress up” from time to time. Feel free to bring your Bible with you to church, but in case you can’t, all the Scripture passages will be printed for you in the worship program that is handed out.
We are a church that welcomes everyone. Our congregation consists of people from many different backgrounds and nationalities. We have singles, married couples and senior citizens. And we are very “kid-friendly”. During the school year, we have Children's Church for ages 4-7 at both services. Also, during each worship service, year round, excellent childcare is provided for infants through age 3. (But you are welcome to keep your child with you if you want; we don’t mind a little noise.)
The worship at ACC is centered on the proclamation of Scripture, the Word of God. The sermons seek to expound the meaning of the day’s text, highlighting Jesus Christ as the central focus of the whole Bible.
Singing praise to God is an important part of our worship service. Our music is led by gifted musicians from the congregation. At 9:30 am we have a liturgical service using traditional hymns and contemporary songs, while at 11:15 am we offer a contemporary-style worship service.
Every Sunday we gather at the Lord’s Table to take Communion together. You don’t have to be a member of ACC to participate. Any baptized believer in Christ who belongs to a church that teaches the gospel is invited to partake.
If you have any questions about ACC, please call or contact us.
