Child Protection Training

Saturday, February 23, 9am-1pm
Pender Dr. Office & Community Center

Church of the Apostles believes that protecting children is a mandate from the Lord, found in Matthew 18:5-6. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

In order to safeguard our children and protect them from abuse, extensive training will be provided for those working with children and youth. We have been diligent in providing training. This training will continue with the addition of the newest guidelines and policies required by the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic. All staff, vestry, ministry leaders, TPM prayer ministers, Sunday School teachers, Student Ministry volunteers, and all others involved in Children and Student Ministry ages 16 and up are required to attend.

Also, we encourage all members of the congregation to consider attending as we believe knowledge is power and we have a moral obligation to protect God’s children. You can read Bishop John Guernsey’s letter commending the training as well as the Protection of Children Policy for the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic here. Please email Kristin Colligan at kcolligan@churchoftheapostles.orgif you have any questions.

Pender Dr. Office & Community Center
Registration Cost: $35/Couple (includes all dates and book)
Free Childcare with Registration

The Healing Center is pleased to announce that we will be bringing back Date Night. Last year, the purpose of the 10 Great Dates program was to help couples build their relationship through dating. Each Date Night will include a brief word of encouragement, and an overview of the topic which will set the stage for discussion. Couples are then sent out for their own private date. Free childcare will be available for children up to age 11 (6th grade) beginning at 4:45pm and ending 8:00pm.

This year we are adding a new dimension to the Date Night Program, Date Night 2.0. These dates are crafted to help you connect faith, love, and marriage in ways that result in a deeper spiritual connection—in a fun, grace-filled, safe format. Engaged couples, newlyweds and “oldy-weds” are encouraged to attend!

You may be feeling apprehensive or skeptical. Jack and I understand completely (as do the authors of the book). Many have the deep desire to connect more spiritually with their spouse but they may have found it difficult. If so, you are not alone.  It is time to put away your doubts, concerns, regrets, and should-haves, and join us on fun dates that can jump-start spiritual growth and put new excitement and energy into this very important aspect of your relationship. 

The Dates will be held on the second Saturday of each month. Monthly attendance is not required; however, there is great benefit to participating regularly. Dates will begin at 5:00pm in the Chapel at the Pender Dr. office.

The cost of participation is $35.00 per couple for all Ten Dates and the book. There will be a chance to win fabulous prizes each Date Night. We will provide the book to you in advance if you pre-register by October 8, 2018. Please do not let the cost prohibit your participation, scholarships are available. Advance registration for Childcare is required. Please register by October 8, 2018 so that we can plan for enough materials and adequate childcare. Registration details below.

Dates:

  • March 9: Talking Together with God

  • April 13: Building Your Marriage on a Strong Foundation

Prayer Ministry Orientation & Training
Feb
9
9:00 AM09:00

Prayer Ministry Orientation & Training

Saturday, January 9
9:00am - 12:30pm
Pender Dr. Office & Community Center
RSVP Requested

Prayer is a way we communicate with God and He wants to know us better. The Bible also has a lot to say about prayer and prayer for others.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us, And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him. - 1 John 5:14-15

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. - Ephesians 6:18

On February 9, we want to take the opportunity to refresh and equip our current prayer ministers and intercessors as well as provide an opportunity for those interested in the different aspects of prayer ministry to learn more. The first half of the meeting will include an overview of the different components: confidential prayer tree, Elijah intercessors, prayer before the service, prayer rail and prayer appointments. We will also have an opportunity to receive from the Lord and to pray for each other. The second half of the meeting will allow the different groups of “pray-ers” to meet for special training, updates, and allow anyone interested in a particular prayer aspect to learn more. Please register below so that we know how many are attending. Please feel free to send any questions to Kristin at kcolligan@churchoftheapostles.org or Joe at jacanfora@churchoftheapostles.org.
