C&C (College & Career) is a ministry of Acacia that’s geared toward college students, young professionals, and their families at Acacia. C&C has monthly events aimed at developing friendships and relationships with other like-minded believers looking to grow both themselves and their relationship with God. We believe that real life change and discipleship happens best not in rows but in circles. God designed us for community with others. As a result, it is important to have a group of people in your life who consistently encourage and challenge you in your faith.
If you are between the ages of 20-40, there are endless pursuits you hold close to your heart. A career, a relationship, money or success, friends, family, the list is endless. God has gifted us by enabling us to pursue and enjoy these good things.
In Ecclesiastes 1 and 2, we find that Solomon pursued many of these same things. The end result however, was that they left him feeling empty and meaningless. Solomon never tells us that these pursuits are bad, but at the end of the book he does tell us that unless God is pursued first, then all other pursuits are “vanity" and “striving after wind." Similarly in Luke 12:31 we are told to seek first the Kingdom of Heaven then everything else that we need will be added to us by God.
We hope our College and Career group is a place where you will feel welcomed, encouraged, and challenged to pursue after Christ above all else.
