Acts 2 Communities

We gather together to be spiritually formed – our desire is to become more like Christ and experience community the way the early church did in Acts 2:42-47. Each week we study and discuss scripture, engage in spiritual practices and share our lives with each other. Occasionally, we serve others around the city.

These are are co-ed groups led by adults and a team of college students.
