Annual Community Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service
Join us on Tuesday, November 26th at 7:30 p.m. at Annandale United Methodist Church for our annual Thanksgiving service. It is a wonderful opportunity for all 27 churches to worship together and it is always a blessing. The offering will be donated to the work and ministries of ACCA.

Service Spotlight
The ACCA food pantry was a busy place on Saturday November 9 as Scouts from the area picked up donations from neighbors and brought them to be shelved at the pantry. More scouts helped with that effort, along with long-time ACCA volunteers. Thank you for your generous donations of food and time!

Bailey's Shelter has Moved!

Bailey’s Shelter & Supportive Housing on Seminary Road is a multi-service facility that houses both a shelter program and permanent supportive housing. The top two floors of the new site has 9 efficiency apartments each, for a total of 18 new housing units for chronically homeless adults. This new facility opened November 1, 2019, replacing the Bailey’s Crossroads Community Shelter that had been in use since the 1980s. Find out more.
