Life University (formerly ACTS) Classes

Life University Classes offer opportunities for spiritual growth through Bible and topical studies. Membership is not required to participate, and activities for children are offered on Wednesday nights at 6:00 pm. Dinner is also available at 4:45 pm. There is no charge for most classes, although some require a workbook. Check course descriptions.

Most Fall classes will begin September 7, 2016. To view course descriptions, click on the individual class. Most classes meet on Wednesdays at 6:00 PM unless otherwise indicated.

Note that starting dates vary, depending on the class. Several weekday options are available as well. Check out the Women's Ministries page Monday morning options.

Various previously recorded Life University classes are available on our church YouTube channel. Look for ACTS Classes in the created playlists.

Ministry Leader

Betty Slaton: ACTS Director
What is your official title? Director of ACTS What does your job involve? My job involves providing a variety of Bible study, doctrine, and topical classes to encourage spiritual growth, not only for members of First Baptist Orlando, but for our community. I review courses and search for just the right teachers to offer a balance of classes. While it is great to provide opportunities to go deeper spiritually, many times people will come to a class on marriage or parenting when they might not ordinarily attend a church. Once they get here, they find that Jesus is the real solution to whatever they are facing.
