WorshipAt Apex United Methodist Church, we offer the following worship services
May 28-July 30
This summer, we will enter a new sermon series and a new schedule for 10 weeks as we dive deep into scripture. We will study the book of Daniel and examine many of the familiar biblical stories through a new lens. During this time, we will also enter into a different worship schedule:
- Sundays: Three services – 8:15 and 11:00 traditional, 9:35 contemporary
- Wednesdays: Contemplative-style prayer service in the sanctuary, 6:30-7:15 p.m.
May 28-July 30
“It is not who you are or where you are that ultimately matters in the kingdom of God. It is what you are. Faithfulness, not reputation or situation, is what counts in God’s kingdom.”
The stories in Daniel are familiar to us. Stories like Daniel in the lions’ den, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the Fiery Furnace, and the mysterious handwriting on the wall.
But did you know Daniel, as an exile in Babylon, served a narcissistic king in a time of political turmoil, and ultimately became known for his prophetic words and teaching? We will journey with Daniel as he lives through the beginning of one of the most volatile times in history, beginning with the Babylonian empire, then looking ahead to Alexander the Great, four competing kingdoms, and ultimately culminating with the Roman rule in the time of Jesus.
REGULAR WORSHIP SCHEDULE
Contemplative Worship: Saturdays, 5:30 p.m., sanctuary
Folks who worship on Saturday evening come dressed casually, yet appreciate the rich traditions of worship as an opportunity to experience God through weekly communion, prayerful silence, relevant preaching and music with a folksy, acoustic groove.
Traditional Worship: Sundays, 8:15 and 11 a.m., sanctuary
For many, gathering in a sanctuary beneath stained glass windows is an important part of worship—singing with the heft of a hymnal in your hand, feeling your soul resonate with the hum of the organ, and being bathed in the rich words of ancient creeds and prayers.
Contemporary Worship: Sundays, 9:35 and 11 a.m., Christian Life Center
For many, it is easier to worship God when the pews are exchanged for chairs in a gym, the stained glass for beautiful images on a screen and the organ with a band playing contemporary Christian music.
