Who Are We and What do We Believe?  We are a multi-ethnic, multi-congregational, evangelical church located in South Philadelphia.  In addition to our English speaking congregation, SACC currently hosts congregations of Burmese (Karen and Chin), Central American, Congolese (African), Laotian, Nepali, and other ethnic origins.  We are a gospel-centered, Christ-exalting, disciple-making church.  We believe and teach the Bible as God’s Word from a doctrinally Reformed perspective and hold to many of the historic creeds.  SACC is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference.

What should You Expect When You Visit?  Our 10:30 Sunday morning worship service consists of English and Swahili speakers.   As such, our worship service includes worship in both languages.   Every service is followed by a fellowship time with refreshments served in the lower hall.   Please contact us in advance with any specific questions.

Why do Church like this?  Our neighborhood of South Philly is a diverse neighborhood with many cultures and ethnicities represented.  God is bringing many of these groups together at our church.   He is training us to be a welcoming, inclusive church.  As we come together, we learn how to better serve each other while growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus.

What about Childcare?  We have lots of children in our worship service!  At present, we don’t dismiss the children during the sermon for a children’s program.  The children are given coloring pages and crayons to complete during the service.   The front pews are reserved for adults without young children.

What is RAC@SACC?  RAC@SACC is a ministry to our refugee/immigrant community.  SACC seeks to be a refugee access center (RAC) by providing assistance in reading mail, navigating social services, completing government documents, and other tasks.  RAC@SACC is open from 2-4 p.m. on Saturdays.

Where to Park?  There is limited street parking in the vicinity of the church.  You’ll usually find parking under I-95 between Front and Water Streets on Snyder Avenue (3 blocks east of the church).  It is recommended that you add 15 minutes to your travel time to account for potential parking difficulties.
