Our first Sunday evening contemplative worship service was a great success! Please join us this week at 5 p.m. in the sanctuary! The service includes weekly communion, space for prayer and intentional silence, as well as scripture, sermon, and music that seeks to bridge our ancient traditions with a modern feel.

Sunday evenings will include an opportunity for everyone in the church to be involved. We have full children’s programming and nursery during our worship time. Here is what Sunday evenings look like:

We will have organizing services Sept. 17 and 24 that will include various worship elements alongside opportunities to plug into the many service opportunities connected to this worship experience. We will then have our 100th Anniversary Celebration on Oct. 1, with the full service launch on Oct. 8.

We are so excited about this new Sunday evening experience for our Apex UMC community and can’t wait to see what God brings to this service. We are incredibly grateful to the lay leaders who love this contemplative worship service and came together to discern how we might best offer this experience to our community moving forward.

If you have questions or would like to be involved, please contact Corey Vevera.
