ACTS Core President Welcome Message
ACTS, Adoration, Community, Theology and Service.
The ACTS retreat gives you a hunger for ADORATION and prayer. Through prayer and adoration we come closer to the love and mercy of God. Jesus told us in Matthew 11:22 "Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive."
With COMMUNITY we come to learn that we cannot do it on our own. We need others around us to help us stay focused on the path God has set out for us. In Hebrews 10:24 it tells us "We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works."
In Studying THEOLOGY we learn that our knowledge of God is something we have to constantly continue to upgrade through small groups, adult education or Bible study. Jesus says in
John 6:45 It is written in the prophets:
‘They shall all be taught by God.’
Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.
SERVICE and charity is the way God has given us in this life to come to love him deeper and deeper. It is through our service to others that we really come closer to God and get to know him more deeply.
Jesus said in Matthew 25:35-36, For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothes me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.
Through the ACTS Retreat you can fall into Christ's open arms and see into his eyes to truly know that you have found love, peace, joy and forgiveness.
