At Acacia Park, we invite you to . . .
CONNECT with others as part of a community that strives to practice forgiveness, grace, and genuine hospitality;
WONDER with us at the mystery that is God, a mystery to be experienced rather than solved;
CELEBRATE with us, giving thanks for God’s blessings to us and presence in us;
SHARE your gifts and passions to care for others in the community; share your burdens and experience the healing love of Christ.
