Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my children go? What will be the teaching for the morning?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to email us or call us at 714.637.3220.
What is the teaching like?
All of our teaching and preaching: youth, children, and adults, follows the Shock and Awe Schedule on our website. We are reading and praying through the Bible together as a church and every week we teach and preach on the passages that we have been reading. Go to our Shock & Awe: Year of the Bible page or The Fight page for more information.
When are services?
Discipleship hour is at 9:00am. Worship service is at 10:30am. We serve coffee, juice and donuts at 10:00am in the courtyard.
What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.

Am I expected to put money in the offering?
If you are visiting with us, we don't expect you to put money in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by. If you consider TACC your church home, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving. You can give by check or cash during the service, or you can mail in your contribution.
I have hearing and/or visual problems. Is there any special assistance?
Yes! For those who are hearing impaired, we have special hearing devices that you can wear that will allow you to control the volume. If you think this would be beneficial to you, ask one of our greeters in the entry hall.
For those who are visually impaired, we have worship guides with large print. Ask of of our greeters in the entry hall and they will be able to assist you in.
What is the TACC service like?
We strive to have our attenders passionately engage in worship experiences. To achieve this we utilize an eclectic mix of live music, media, preaching, praying, public reading of Scripture, and congregational reading. Our service typically lasts 1.5 hours.
Maximal Participation: We are constantly striving to enable the highest number of people to participate and engage God passionately.
1. A Timeless Gospel: We endeavor to demonstrate the power of the Gospel and its ability to reach and meet needs across generations.
2. Musically Diverse: We strive to be flexible in utilizing multiple musical styles with excellence and passion. We sing older hymns of the faith that have stood the test of time. We frequently ‘retune’ them to give them a more modern feel without sacrificing the intent of the original author. We also sing some of the more contemporary songs where the writers have been careful in theological accuracy and content.
3. Worship is about the triune God. We come humbly, as recipients of His grace, to give Him honor and glory by praying, singing, listening to preaching, giving, celebrating the Lord’s Supper and celebrating baptisms.
4. The Bible is central to all that we do, especially in public worship. Our pastors preach messages that are centered on God who has revealed Himself perfectly in the Bible. We preach expository sermons, usually progressing verse by verse through a book of the Bible.
What does a service (volume) sound like?
We understand that volume is perceived differently. One person’s sense of “loudness” may not apply to the next person. That is simply who we are! Our experience tells us that we are not able to satisfy everyone’s perception of volume or even mix of audio. Nonetheless we strive to know well the output of our audio systems and that we come to worship to encourage each other and to sing to each other as Paul reminds us in Ephesians 5. Therefore, we strive to adjust the volume of the instruments and up-front singers so that the congregation can hear itself sing. The sound coming from the platform should never overpower the congregation so that we cannot hear others singing.
