 The primary goals of ACTS are:

  • To increase in laity the ability to intentionally live and share the Christian faith.
  • To develop in laity a fuller understanding of the Bible, the theology of our church, and the practice of ministry.
  • To equip in laity leadership special areas of ministry and service as ambassadors for Christ.

A typical course will consist of 10 hours of large-group instruction by a recognized authority, offered in two five hour Saturday sessions.  Plus five two hour small groups, usually done on a weeknight chosen by the group and led by a rostered leader.
