While our physical gatherings being temporarily suspended, our leadership’s prayer is that our Church will continue to be the Church: Worshiping God in Spirit and in Truth, Sharing the good news of Jesus with our neighbors, and Being salt and light for the world around us.

Coffee Hour is Back at 10:30 AM.  Join before worship this Sunday to meet someone new during breakout conversations. And if you have kids, join our Family Time with our Family Ministry Leaders, Matt and Katelyn Grant.

This week’s story is about Joseph and Mary dedicating Jesus to the Lord, from Luke 2. As a parent, you can read some context for the Bible story before you join your child in studying God’s word. 

We have provided you resources to help you foster a study of God’s word with your child in the absence of our Sunday gatherings. We recommend that you read the story, sing a few songs and pray together. If you have time, play the Bible story as a review, print and complete the activity page or do the activity as a family together. 

You can refer to our Apostles Kids Spotify Playlist or YouTube Playlist for songs to sing together as a family. The songs listed are songs we sing together on Sundays in Apostles Kids.
