Yard Sale Donations Needed

Is it time to clean out your closets and your attic? Is the garage so full that you can’t park your car in it anymore? Finally willing to get rid of those clothes in the closet that you have not worn for 5 years? This is your opportunity to get rid of those items. The Columbarium Committee is hosting a Yard Sale on May 17th to help raise funds. We have secured a storage unit where we can house donated items until we are ready for the sale. As a matter of fact, if you get your items together, we will even come and pick them up from you. In addition to having the yard sale, we will be having much more, so mark your calendars and watch for more information. It will be a fun family day! For more information please contact Debbie Worden at 919-757-5810.

Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Looking for a summer activity? Sign up starting April 13 for our June 8 trip to the Durham Bulls for a Sunday evening game at 5:05pm against the Norfolk Tide (AAA team of the Baltimore Orioles).  The tickets are $9.99 a piece (for children two and under there is no charge but they are NOT assigned a seat; if you want them to have a seat, it is $9.99).  We will depart from APLC at 3:45pm to arrive in time for the 5:05pm start.  Contact Tad Doering (thetaddoerings@aol.com or 919-772-3441) if you have any questions.

Maundy Thursday

This year’s Maundy Thursday service will be a joint observance of this sacred occasion between our congregation and Trinity Episcopal Church, Fuquay-Varina. The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a potluck in our fellowship hall. This potluck will also include elements of the Jewish Seder, an ancient remembrance of God’s deliverance of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. We will then continue our evening together as we worship, utilizing the ritual Maundy Thursday liturgy, complete with The Symbolic Washing of the Feet, Holy Eucharist, and the poignant Stripping of the Altar. We hope you will all enjoy this evening. If you have any questions or are interested in helping set up this event, please contact Debbie Worden at apexdebbie@aol.com or 919-757-5810.

New Member Classes now forming

We will be hosting another class for those of you interested in joining the ministry of APLC. While classes will not take place until after Easter, we are asking that you sign up now so we know how many people are interested in attending the next round of classes. You can sign up at the sign up station in the Narthex. If you have any questions about becoming a member, please contact Debbie Worden at apexdebbie@aol.com or 919-757-5810.
