Find Your Place Event

If you have been looking for a place to connect at One Church and Acts 2, then mark your calendar for the next Find Your Place Event at One Church on Friday, January 11 and at Acts 2 on Sunday, January 13. You will have the opportunity to speak to representatives of small groups, Bible studies and mission opportunities to discern what might be a great fit for you and your family. Be on the look out for three new groups offered this spring: Alpha, MoneyLife: Personal Finance Study, The Parenting Hustle: A Love & Logic Based Experience, and Yoga for Anyone. Finding a place to learn and serve together is integral to Acts 2’s goal of helping non-active and non-religious Christians become radical Christ followers. Below you will find information about all the current offerings and opportunities to engage in this goal.

Confirmation is a long-standing Christian tradition and holds a special place in our United Methodist heritage.

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

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?

Shared Interest Small Groups

Shared Interest Small Groups are made up of members, guests, friends and neighbors sharing a common interest. There is no membership requirement to participate and participants are encouraged to invite and include guests and friends seeking a church home. These groups meet semi-regularly around a shared interest and provide community and spiritual growth by asking the questions:

  • Where have you seen God this week?
  • How can we be praying for each other?

Service-Oriented Groups

Serve at Acts 2

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.
