At Acts 2, we believe spiritual and personal growth works best when we practice what we call “worship plus two”—weekly worship, a place to learn, and a place to serve. 

We’re currently reassessing the best way to offer opportunities to grow in a safe environment in light of COVID-19. Those opportunities will be posted here by September 1. In the meantime, you can browse some of our past offerings below. If you have questions, contact Michael Andres.

Service-Oriented Groups

Serve at Acts 2

Contact: Chantelle Foster

At Acts 2, we believe it takes everyone working together to be the body of Christ. The business of being the church cannot move forward without the support of the people in it.

Sign Up to Serve

Serve the Local Community

Contact: Rev. Brandon Blacksten

Acts 2 organizes several different mission projects throughout the year. These projects can range from local cleanup and painting jobs to out-of-state construction ventures. We regularly collect supplies for Infant Crisis Services, Prison Ministries, Troop Support, Hope Center of Edmond and the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.

Serve Internationally

Contact: John Hurd

Acts 2 is committed to spreading God’s love by serving those in need. Approximately 748 million people in the world do not have access to clean drinking water, so we have partnered with Living Water International year after year to reach large groups of people who suffer every day without this resource that we can often take for granted.
