After 103 years of Apostolic Christian worship in the brick church on the corner of Jefferson and Third, a new church facility was built at our present location on Veterans Road, adjacent to our Fellowship Hall and Apostolic Christian LifePoints. Construction was completed in the Fall of 2016, with a special Dedication Service held in November 2016.
The Fellowship Hall is located at 2201 Veterans Road, in Morton, IL. Built in 1975, a major remodeling and expansion was completed in 2007. The Fellowship Hall is used for church-related activities such as wedding receptions, benefit dinners, singings, and presentations.
The church has two cemeteries located in Morton. The “old” church cemetery is located on the corner of Queenwood Road and Robin Avenue. The first burial there took place in 1876. Burials are no longer conducted there. The current church cemetery, which was opened in 1910, is located at the corner of Fourth Street and Birchwood Road.
ACR is a 128-bed skilled nursing center certified for Medicare and Medicaid to provide short-term care, long-term care, and complete rehabilitation services. A licensed Special Care Unit provides memory support for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. This ministry's mission is "Honoring God by Serving Others," and is supported by the Morton and Tremont Apostolic Christian Churches.
In 1978, the Morton church purchased the original "Restmor" at 935 E. Jefferson, which was relocated on April 15, 2008, to a newly constructed long-term care facility at 1500 Parkside Ave. ACR is affiliated with The Parkside of Morton, a 48-unit independent living community for age 55+, located on the ACR campus.
“The Parkside” is a 48-unit Christian retirement community for ages 55 and above. Phase 1, consisting of the first 33 units along with all the public areas, was completed in 1992. The final 15 units of Phase 2 were added two years later. There are 42 two-bedroom units and 6 one-bedroom units, ranging in size from 684 to 1,326 sq. ft. Singings, exercise classes, and other activities are enjoyed in a Christian group setting. The Parkside functions with its own separate board of directors and is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation. The Parkside admits residents without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin. Managed by Apostolic Christian Restmor, Inc.
