ACCA is a coalition of churches founded in 1967 by Fred and Emily Ruffing from Queen of Apostles Church. ACCA volunteers serve the local community with provision of furniture, a food pantry, and transportation, Meals on Wheels, family emergency, house restoration, student scholarships, and shelter support. ACCA has a Child Development Center (CDC) which provides affordable, high-quality early education and day car for children ages 3 months to 5 years. The ACCA Board meets monthly at one of the participating churches. The July meeting is usually held at Queen of Apostles. ACCA participates in a number of community/school events and food drives.
