Camp ACC 2019.jpg

Summer is on the way and one of the great things our area has to offer that you may not even know about is Camp ACC - the summer camp ministry of Appalachian Christian Camp. Appalachian Christian Camp has been located in Limestone Cove in Unicoi for over 40 years and has been ministering to the youth of our area since 1930.

Camp ACC is a non-denominational Christian Summer Camp for youth entering Kindergarten through 12th grade. The camp program begins the first of June and continues through the summer, into early August . Camp ACC teaches Christian principles and values in a fun and exciting way that challenges today's youth. While Camp ACC is a church camp, you do not have to be a member of a church to attend.

The Camp ACC campus includes a full high ropes course, 4 ziplines, several low ropes course elements, gymnasium with an indoor rock climbing wall, ball field, sand volleyball court, a 5,000 square foot swimming pool, open-air worship center, air-conditioned dormitories and walking trails all surrounded by the beauty of Unicoi County.

Unity Weekend-March 9&10

29128_American_Flags.jpg

Colonial Heights Christian Church is devoting March 9 and 10 to fasting and prayer for our country. We will be praying specifically that we might be one. 

We believe that the best hope for our country to be unified is for God to work.  We will be coming together to pray for Him to move in our midst and in our country—from each of its citizens to the highest offices in our government.

Prayer & Fasting

From 8:30am Saturday to 8:30am Sunday, multiple prayer stations will be located in the gym area.  These stations will be interactive and direct our prayers to attitudes we believe need to be present for unity to take place.  A schedule will be set up so that people are praying throughout this 24-hour period. 

Breaking the Fast

This time of prayer and fasting will conclude with a breakfast in the Fellowship Hall on Sunday from 8:30 – 9:45am.  Suggested donation is $5. Reservations are recommended.

One Unified Service on March 10

After the breakfast, we will join together for one service at 10am to worship and complete this special Unity Weekend. We hope to see you!
