The ACTS Group
Word from the Director
It was just at the beginning of September that the ACTS Group celebrated our two year birthday... Since September of 2012, the ACTS Group has continued to build upon the momentum of the united efforts of churches, leaders, and non-profits that participated in the festival by convening leading groups for prayer, service and gospel sharing and developing a media platform to communicate united Christian efforts.
One of the great privileges of being asked to lead the development of the ACTS Group has been being invited into the national conversation on gospel movements – see more at www.gospelmovements.org . God is at work across the nation to stir his people and the united church to a new expression of vibrant witness of Jesus. These leaders will gather again in New York at the fifth annual movement day on October 23 - see more athttp://www.movementday.com/movement-day/interactive-tracks/gospel-movements . Pray for the ten person contingent representing Sacramento and for our sharing about God’s work in Sacramento in the gospel movement afternoon session. Report to come in the November news.

Worship, Prayer and Healing Night - September Highlight
On Sunday September 21st, the regional Worship, Prayer and Healing night brought together thousands of Christians from more than thirty different churches, across all racial and denominational lines, to worship Him and seek Him in their place of need. Was the Lord honored? Yes. Were people healed? Yes. Were strongholds broken? Yes. But, the greatest part of the evening was God’s increasing and unmistakable presence, emanating of peace. There was a profound expression of God's love and desire for each person.

ACTS Group Endorsement
Kirt Lewis, World Relief, Sacramento
“How easy it is, in the face of urgent human needs or the struggles and efforts of our particular churches and organizations, to retreat back into our own little worlds. The irony is that this only weakens us as members of the Body of Christ in the Sacramento region. The work of The ACTS Group is invaluable in lifting our eyes beyond ourselves to see what parts God might have us all play in accomplishing something that we could only accomplish by uniting together in prayer, friendship, service and in the sharing of the love of Christ.”
The ACTS Group is…
Unified, gospel-based leaders working for transformation in the diverse communities of the Sacramento region. These leaders provide ongoing leadership and encouragement for gospel movement in communities as well as in the spheres of cultural influence of the city.
