Serve United

A strategic organization of the ACTS Group

Advancing Good by Engaging a Divided Nation

We live in an increasingly complex and divided nation and world. If you've watched the news or scrolled through your news feed the past few weeks, or even the past year, images and passionate opinions on race, foreign policies, presidential candidacies, riots and protests flood the screens. Questions that arise in these moments as a faith leader might be, "how do Christians respond? how can Christians bring hope and leadership to their communities in such a critical moment for America?" The ACTS Group would like to invite you to join this timely discussion at our next Q Commons Sacramento on October 13th from 7pm-9pm at Beatnik studios. The theme of the night is "Engaging Our Divided Nation" and topics include Leadership, Civil Public Discourse and Answers to Race. You can read about national speakers and register for Q Commons Sacramento here.

I hope to see you there for this incredible night of important discussion and activation!

Serving with you,

Megan McCleary
