Summer Women’s Evening Bible Study on Thursday evenings.

Women of APC – You are warmly invited to participate in our Summer Women’s Evening Bible Study. We are gathering weekly in-person outside on Thursdays at 7pm in Alexandria. In the case of extreme weather, we will meet via Zoom. The eight-week study will continue through August 12 with a break the week of July 4th. For this study, we are using a LifeGuide Bible Study resource called “The Lord’s Prayer” by Douglas Connelly.  This study is topical, so come as you are able. We trust that the gatherings will be a sweet time of fellowship, connection, and renewal. Please contact Karen Heath ([email protected]) to learn more and register.

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.

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.
