Mercy Ministry

Our deacons have a Biblical mandate (Acts 6) to address needs within the Body of Christ, so we have a Deacons’ Fund offering each month to provide for the material needs of our own congregation, and to show the love of Christ to people in our community. The deacons administer these funds, and work together with the men and women of the Mercy Committee to counsel, encourage, and pray for those in need.

Lay Counseling

The Lay Counseling Ministry supports men and women in the APC community who seek to understand life experiences in light of their relationship with Jesus Christ and others. Lay Counselors walk with clients as they come to understand more deeply who they are in Christ and how that has an impact on their needs, hurts, choices and behaviors. Lay Counselors provide confidential, biblical care-giving to individuals and families, while praying for their growth in maturity as image-bearers of our Lord.

The Power of Prayer

Here at Alexandria Presbyterian Church, we want prayer to be the center of everything that we do. We want to fellowship in the presence of our Father casting everything that we have upon him. Rejoicing in the fact that we serve a Lord that wants us to come to Him in prayer.

Throughout this year of Covid-19, we have seen many answers to prayer. From receiving new visitors to our services, healing of our loved ones, to renewal and revival of our faith. We serve a God who delights in answering our prayers.

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.”  1 John 5:14
