Find an Opportunity to Serve

As a community, we value and encourage everyone to discover the joy and the reward of helping others through service. If you’d like to get involved, please contact us today! Here are some ways to serve:

Urgent Needs

Urgent Indoor Service Help

Volunteers needed for indoor worship! We need and value your help as we move our worship indoors. Volunteers will arrive by 8:15am to help. Opportunities each Sunday include:

Greeters: 2 volunteers needed, Contact Matt Coombs at [email protected]org
Ushers: 5 volunteers needed, Contact Marc Smith at [email protected]
Cleanup: 2-3 volunteers needed, Contact Vicki Wolfe at [email protected]org

Urgent Audio

The audio ministry requires a heart for ministry, a technical mind, and an ear for music. Volunteers run sound once a month on Sundays and possibly serve for special services.

Outreach

African Refugee Outreach

APC has welcomed more than two dozen refugees into our congregation. Most are from Africa — men and women fleeing political and religious persecution. It is a tremendous mutual blessing to worship together, and to serve these new Americans as they learn English, seek employment and endeavor to reunite with family members who are often left behind.

Evangelism

APC seeks to fulfill the Great Commission by providing our members with evangelistic training and the necessary resources to effectively present the gospel. For more information on how you can become involved in various evangelistic events and opportunities throughout the year, contact the church office.

Adults & Seniors

Communion Setup Volunteers 

Are you interested in preparing the elements for APC’s monthly celebration of the Lord’s Table?  All the elements are on hand, and your role would be to prepare them for service.

Social Committee

Community requires connection, and the Social Committee’s role is to foster that connection by dreaming up and planning fun events for the whole church. The committee typically meets 4-6 times per year to enjoy a great meal and plan events big and small.

Intercessory Prayer Team

APC has a small group of men and women who are committed to praying regularly for our church: our pastors, those in leadership positions, our various ministries and outreach efforts, members of our congregation, and our building. Contact Pastor Tom if you would like to learn more or serve on this important team.

Bi-Monthly Prayer Meetings

A corporate prayer time takes place the second Saturday (9-10am) and the fourth Sunday (5-6pm) of each month.

Sunday Morning Prayer

Folks gather every Sunday morning at 8:00am in the Chapel at Russell Road for a time of prayer prior to the worship service.

Prayer on Wednesday evenings from 8pm-9pm via Zoom.

You are invited to join other APC members in prayer each Wednesday evening. See the APC weekly email for the Zoom link or contact the church office for details.

Prayer Meetings every 3rd Saturday at 11am via Zoom. 

The Prayer Committee invites you to join them via Zoom every 3rd Saturday from 11am-12pm to pray for the future of APC as we seek the Lord’s vision. See the APC weekly email for the Zoom link or contact the church office for details.

Sunday Pre-Service Prayer Meeting

Please consider joining us at 8:00am Sunday mornings for a pre-service prayer meeting via Zoom or in-person in the chapel. See the weekly APC email for the meeting link or contact the church office for the Zoom link.

Seniors Ministry

APC is a welcoming community of believers to those who face the physical challenges of aging. Our Seniors Ministry offers a fellowship and devotional time on Sunday mornings, along with transportation for individuals and those at the Lincolnian Assisted Living residences. The Sunday morning gathering is on the main level at Russell Road, in room 205, just after close of morning worship. All who find it difficult to manage the steps to go downstairs, or find the fellowship hall to be too noisy and crowded, are invited to join our Seniors Fellowship. We also provide a mid-week outreach to the Lincolnian, and have sponsored Christmas gifts and special programs for the residents. Volunteers to assist in this ministry are always welcome.

Children & Students

Explorers and Children’s Church Volunteers

Investing in the future is what volunteering in Children’s Ministry is about. Children’s Church is held for 45 minutes during worship.  Explorer classes are held from 5-7pm on Sundays, including game time, dinner, and a lesson.

Contact: Erin Furgerson, Director of Children’s Ministries

PROTAS/Youth Volunteers

Consider joining APC’s kingdom-building youth ministry by coming alongside teenagers as a friend and discipler. Cross-generational ministry is hard work, but what teens often remember more is the person who earned their trust. Contact: Adam LeRoy, Director of Youth Ministries

Nursery Volunteers

The nursery is an important ministry to our littlest ones. Volunteers typically help out one worship service per quarter. Contact: Erin Furgerson, Director of Children’s Ministries, or the APC office.

Hospitality

Manna Ministry

This ministry provides meals to those with short-term needs, such as a death in family, injury or illness, surgery, new baby, etc. Contact the church office to volunteer or to receive assistance.

Hospitality—”Bringing It To the Table!”

APC’s Hospitality volunteers transform every fellowship event into a truly special occasion, assisting with everything from decorations to food. They also help with Sunday morning coffee during the fellowship time.

Ushers

As an usher, you help the Deacons collect tithes and offerings and give a big smile to the folks in the pews as you pass the collection bags.

Coffee Ministry

The Coffee Ministry serves light refreshments each Sunday during fellowship time. We need new team members to serve on teams of four. Likely, you will only be scheduled one Sunday per quarter.

Greeters

Greeters assure that members, regular attendees, and every person who visits APC are warmly welcomed at each service. They also assure that visitors receive information about the church and ministry opportunities. Greeters are scheduled in teams of 4-5 people for 2 weeks at a time, typically 2-3 times a year.

Fellowship Hall Reset

We are in need of volunteers who are willing to reset the Fellowship Hall after Sunday School, in preparation for Sunday night ministries. This typically takes 10-15 minutes each Sunday, and involves putting all chairs and tables back into the storage room. It’s quick, it’s easy, and could use your leadership.

Arts & Technology

Urgent Audio

The audio ministry requires a heart for ministry, a technical mind, and an ear for music. Volunteers run sound once a month on Sundays and possibly serve for special services.

Photography

Photographs of APC events are desired for the newsletter, Facebook, videos, etc. and require a photographer with an artistic sense and their own equipment.

Music

We are a church that highly values music! There are many ways to get involved, including adult and youth choirs, praise team, and special services.

Manna Meals: A Meaningful Ministry at APC

The Manna Meals ministry coordinates meals to APC’ers who have recently had babies, are experiencing illness, or going through other significant life events. If you’ve ever been the recipient of these meals, you know they are a great blessing in a time of need! This is a tangible and meaningful way to minister to the APC family.

Over this past year, in spite of the challenges of Covid, 16 families have received weeks worth of meals in their time of need through this ministry. We want to say a huge thank you to each person who has demonstrated Christ’s love through loving their fellow brothers and sister in this way!

“Our family received Manna Meals after the birth of our son, and it was a huge help during a time where we felt overwhelmed. It was such a treat to have delicious dinners provided so that we didn’t have spend time cooking during those first weeks. We felt so loved and encouraged by our APC family!”

Use your gifts to serve on our music ministry teams.

At APC, we have members from a wide range of backgrounds, so we offer a blended style of worship that incorporates contemporary worship songs, traditional hymns and music from other traditions.

Serve with us around the world.

Engagement in Missions is an integral part of the life and ministry of Alexandria Presbyterian Church. Within the first year of APC’s founding, the congregation began supporting a missionary family serving abroad. That commitment to support those in the mission field has deepened over the years through steady financial support, regular communication and prayer.
