Looking for some ways that you can make a difference right now? Well, we believe God is calling you to do exactly that! We know that there is a power within each student to change the world. You can allow this power to work through you to change your life, your community, and your world for Jesus Christ. The Acteens® theme is G3: The Power of a Girl to Change the World. We focus on three girls in G3: you, the girl next door, and the girl on the other side of the world. We have added a little twist to this theme to fit all students in your youth group. S3: The Power of a Student to Change the World. You will still focus on the 3 different students just in a co-ed context.
