Date Night 2.0

Second Saturday of the Month, 5:00pm - 8:00pm
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:

  • February 9: Loving Your Closest Neighbor

  • March 9: Talking Together with God

  • April 13: Building Your Marriage on a Strong Foundation

  • May 11: Facing the Storms of Life Together

  • June 8: Guarding Your Heart Under God’s Canopy/Making Your Marriage a Light House

If you have any questions regarding Date Night, please email or call Kristin Colligan at kcolligan@churchoftheapostles.org or at 703-591-1974.

Children and Youth Summer Line Up
Jun
1
to Aug 31

Children and Youth Summer Line Up

Summertime for Apostles including multiple summer camp opportunities for children and youth.

I sit here relishing in the beauty of the snow but my thoughts and my heart are already turned to summer and to the longer stretches of time we have with our children both from the nuclear family’s perspective as well as the church family.  Summertime affords the greatest opportunity to fulfill the biblical expression of family discipleship so beautifully stated in Deuteronomy 6:4-7 4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Apostles has a long history of offering Summer Camp opportunities that not only disciple children and youth but also provide ways in which the youth and adults can lead and disciple others. This approach clearly embraces the Apostles mission statement “ Disciples of Jesus, discipling in love”. 

 

It is my dream to create seamless multi-generational opportunities for the church community to be engaged.  Below are some of the steps toward realizing this dream.  We will start at the top and work our way down.


For all ages:

What:               Family Nights

Where:             Pender offices/Willow Spring Gym

When:              select Friday nights

Why:                To be family, in community, to share the fellowship of Christ with others. Romans 12:5, Hebrews 10:24-25

For Youth rising 7th grade-graduated seniors

What:               Camp Booyah

Where:             Watermarks Camp 1145 James River Rd, Scottsville, VA 24590

https://campbooyah.blogspot.com/2017/07/next-year-watermarks-camp.htmlhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=152&v=2MWh2-DbxBI

Why:                http://campbooyah.com/

Cost:                $400.00

What:               Camp Highroad

Where:             21164 Steptoe Hill Rd, Middleburg, VA 20117

Why:                God is faithful in bringing about His plan. Genesis 37-50

Commitment deadline:  April 22, 2019, written commitment and payment directly to Camp Highroad

For preschool and younger elementary

What:               Backyard Bible Club

Where:             TBD

When:              Tentatively July 8-12, 2019

Why:                To bring the gospel of Jesus to our neighborhoods, 

 

More detailed information will come out in 2 weeks.  Apostles is partnering with outside resources so it is imperative that we have firm deadline dates for commitments. As is our history, scholarships will be available for all programs that incur a cost.

I am so looking forward to this summer.  I have great expectations for what the Lord will do in and through all of us as we live out our mission.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at kcolligan@churchoftheapostles.orgor call the church office, 703-591-1974.

What Is It To Face Life's Losses?

What Is It To Face Life's Losses?

Saturday, October 27, 10:00am - 12:30pm
Pender Drive Office and Community Center
Childcare Provided

What is it like to “Face Life’s Losses?”

Life is full of painful losses that must be grieved, but many of us have found that our culture does not welcome grief nor supply the support we need to face the pain and move toward surrendering it. 

We would like to offer this gathering on October 27 in order to 1) support each other as we embrace the journey of grieving, 2) increase our understanding of grief and loss in its many forms and experience the comfort and freedom that Christ offers us, 3) assess participant interest in an ongoing structured caring/sharing group to support each other and/or a series of experiential workshops that offer both deeper learning and healing.

This seminar will be an interactive time together that looks at grief through a broad lens, exploring what we grieve, how we grieve, and the journey through grief with Christ. It will introduce foundational elements from the class, “Facing Life’s Losses” that broaden understanding of grief and loss, not just about loss through death. We will:

  • Discuss relational circuits and strategies to help us connect to ourselves, others and the Lord.

  • Introduce and experience Immanuel prayer.

  • Introduce journaling with the Lord about our blessings, losses and regrets.

  • Offer freedom to honestly explore ALL our feelings.

  • Introduce the complexities of offering and receiving forgiveness

  • Give an overview of a structured caring/sharing group that offers shared support. 

  • Give an overview of the full class content for “Facing Life’s Losses”  

  • Survey the group as to interest and availability for both a class and a caring and sharing group.

Come if you’re hurting or know someone who is, if you’re curious, if you’re a quiet observer or enjoy verbal sharing. There is never any pressure to share. All are welcome and valued!

The seminar will be facilitated by Lib Gillam, MSW, LCSW, a member of our congregation, using materials developed and adapted by Betsy Stalcup, Director, Healing Center International.

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:

  • October 13: Connecting Faith and Love

  • November 10: Appreciating Your Differences

  • December 8: Experiencing God Together
