Prayer undergirds everything we do at Church of the Apostles as we lift praise, thanksgiving, intercessions, and petitions to the Lord, having faith that prayer changes circumstances and hearts.
While our clergy currently represent the front lines of pastoral care at Church of the Apostles, lay leaders also administer home Communion, visit, and pray with those who are sick.
Although still in our formative stage, we are looking ahead toward building a strong vehicle for our children’s spiritual formation. We have identified the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and are working toward incorporating that curriculum at Church of the Apostles.
Worship forms the centerpiece of our community life, and the nature of that worship offers a range of service opportunities such as:
Altar Guild responsibilities, baking bread for Eucharist, lay reading, serving as Lay Eucharistic Ministers, interceding for each service, serving as greeters, assisting with hospitality, and ushering provide powerful ways to minister in the midst of worship. Visit our Glossary resource for more information about each of these ministries. We consider children an integral part of our community and worship — you can read more here.
If you are interested in any of these ministries, please contact us.
Strengthening and nurturing our community nourishes our sense of incarnational presence and desire to serve others. On the third Friday of each month, Church of the Apostles hosts Fellowship Gatherings where we enjoy great food, get to know one another, laugh a lot, sometimes cook together, and often have a jam session. If you would like to attend one of our gatherings, email us. We have a number of ideas for expanding our fellowship opportunities…stay tuned.
