New Members Class: 1.28.18

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. Our first class in 2018 is January 28th.

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. read more…

Advent & 519 Worship Schedule 2017

The plea of God’s people throughout history has been for God to intervene – to come down, fix what is broken, heal what is wounded, and make real what faith struggles to imagine. We want the same things these days, don’t we? What if we invited God to come again and opened up our lives to first make room in our hearts for him.
