start the new year with 7 days of acts!

What better way to start the New Year than with a seven day challenge from ACTS Group as a way to help set the tone for 2015! Each day, starting January 1st and ending January 7th, The ACTS Group will be asking you to perform a small "ACT" to raise awareness for God's purpose in Sacramento and how people can engage with gospel transformation in our region.

You can find out information about the daily ACT by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and Instagram, where we will be making daily postings. As you join in our "7 Days of ACTS", make sure you tag us on Facebook, twitter, or Instagram to share how you've participated!
