Community Outreach


CA has reopened for in-person Sunday services at 11am! Curious whether you should come? Check out our information matrix below to see some of the countermeasures we’ve put in place to protect our members and guests. 

If you are at high risk, have a family member that is or if you just don’t yet feel comfortable coming to an in-person service we understand and will continue to provide options for you to connect. Join us on Facebook live @CACDurham around 11:15am on Sundays. 

“The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped.” – Psalm 28:7
