Acts Groups are teams at Church of the Cross that are focused on meeting a specific mission need outside of the church. We currently have two Acts groups—one seeking to serve the needs of our Hopkins community, and the other caring for and encouraging supported missions and missionaries of Church of the Cross. We would love to have other Acts groups develop over time as we see and respond to local, regional, and international needs.
The name Acts Group is significant in two ways. First, the goal to serve others in the name of Christ, both near and far, is in line with Jesus’ words to his disciples in the beginning of the book of Acts, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Second, it captures the reality that we witness through both word and acts. Living out our faith takes action—in service, care, prayer, and many other ways. Please consider getting involved in one of our current Acts groups, and be praying and thinking about other ways we can demonstrate the love of Christ to those outside our church walls.
