An initiative of the ACTS Group

Serving Schools this Spring

What is your church doing to serve your school this Spring? A simple and easy way to show love and care for a local school is to accomplish a simple work project that the school is in need of. You can complete a Day of Service by following these easy steps:

1. Meet with the school principle or facilities manager to see what need might be met

2. Get a Team together and determine what supplies and volunteers are needed to meet this need.

3. Work with the school administration to set a date for the event and spread the word to volunteers about your service opportunity

4. Enjoy a day of serving! Make sure to let us know what service project you accomplished by emailing info@actsonline.net

School Partnership Advocate

The Every School Partnership has allowed local churches to intentionally be in community with the community. Through the ACTS Group, it is energizing to get in a room with like-minded, mission-minded people who find common causes and concerns; then tackle the issue together.

Featured Resource: Kids Club Consultants

Kids Club Consultants has been assisting 70+ churches in Silicon Valley in Bible based public school ministry reaching 3,500 students a week with clear Bible teaching. Their clubs range in size from 25-200 students. Each club is sponsored by the local church. The church builds a relationship with the school and its district, as well as with students and families. Kids Clubs (elementary school clubs) and X Clubs (middle school clubs) meet once a week and mentor the students. Students are excited to share with their families what they are learning about Jesus. When parents see a transformation in their children's lives they begin to see the value of Biblical principles and a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Kids Club Consultants have recently moved to the Sacramento Region and is helping several churches launch Kids Clubs! Cornerstone Community Church has recently started a Kids Club at Cottage Elementary. The kids love attending the club and there is even a waitlist for new kids to come!
