What to Expect
At Acton, we want to know your name, and your story, and share ours with you.
Please join us and experience a different kind of church.
About Our Worship Services
Sundays at 11 am, we gather for a time of relaxed, friendly worship designed to engage us with God and one another. Employing traditional music with choir and organ, our worship remains informal and spirit-led. With a commitment to welcoming all people, our time together thrives on intergenerational fellowship. Come as you are and experience God’s love.
While children are always welcome in our worship service, if desired, a nursery for infants through age four is available. We abide by the Safe Sanctuary policy of the United Methodist Church in all situations regarding the care and supervision of children. The policy requires volunteer training, and background checks, with at least two unrelated adults, are present at all times. We look forward to getting to know you and serving your children as our own.
Our Mission: Living and Sharing Real Faith with All People
What is faith? Simply, it is trusting in someone or something. At Acton, we are committed to entrusting our lives to the God revealed in Jesus Christ made present, today, through the Holy Spirit. This faith empowers us to love and serve everyone we encounter and to speak about the love we have received from God. What makes faith real? You. Each person’s journey of faith is unique and filled with “ups” and “downs,” joys and sorrows. We seek to meet these imperfect people supported by perfect grace. So, no matter where you are on your journey of faith, we hope you’ll join us along the way.
Life doesn’t just happen, it is lived. How we respond to the events and situations we encounter reveals our values and character. So too, our faith must be lived in the choices we make each day. At Acton, the following core values help guide the choices that make a living faith.
We attempt to live these core values and grow in our faith by engaging in practices such as worship, prayer, Bible study, fellowship, giving of our time and money, and service to others.
We seek to live our lives according to the example and teachings of Jesus Christ
We seek to live in a trusting community with others by honestly sharing the “best” and “worst” of ourselves.
We seek to involve others in this Jesus-following authentic community.
We seek to make a positive and lasting impact in the lives of those we encounter, especially the poorest and weakest among us.
We seek to make a space and place for any and all who need it.
Because we know the power of faith to transform us and others, sharing our faith through conversation and service is a key part of our life together. While actions speak louder than words, we believe both are crucial for inviting others to live in a trusting relationship with God.
Everyone needs someone to believe in and someone to believe in them.
