Confirmation is a long-standing Christian tradition and holds a special place in our United Methodist heritage. It gives those who were baptized as infants the ability to confirm the decision made on their behalf to become faithful members of the body of Christ. At the same time, confirmation gives those who have never been baptized the opportunity to make that life-changing decision and enter into the body of Christ through the sacrament of baptism.

Covenant Discipleship Groups are made up of 4-6 members of the same gender. They meet regularly and provide high accountability for spiritual growth by asking the questions:

  • At what moment did you feel closest to Christ this week?
  • At what moment did you feel you were responding to God’s call to be His disciple this week?
  • When was your faith tested this week through failure?
  • What is your plan for spirituality, study, and action for the week to come?

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.

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.
