Lent 2017

Lent 2017This Lent, as we take the 40-day journey to Easter, we would like to spend less time trying to explain God and more time learning to encounter God through scripture.

New Members Class: 2.12.17

Membership Class No Words 200 x 200

Several times a year we offer a New Members Class for those attending our Family of Faith Communities.

The New Members Class is an opportunity to hear God’s big story again; to connect God’s story with our unique Wesleyan heritage; and to connect God’s story with the unique story of Apex UMC. In hearing this story, we then invite all people to share their stories and partner with us as a community of disciples of Jesus who are making the story of God active and real in our culture. Teenagers who have been confirmed are invited to join their parents in this experience. Please register them separately.

Learn what it means to become “Involved, Invested and Connected” in our Family of Faith Communities. Read More/Register.
