"Reveal. Remember. Respond. Rejoice."
Apex is all about worship. We were made to worship, and God is to be worshipped.
Our service lasts about 75 minutes: half hour for singing, announcements, drama and/or a video; a half hour for the message; and then a few minutes to respond and wrap it up. Each week we work to create a worship experience through singing, creative arts, media, message and prayer. Children and youth are encouraged to participate with our worship service as we want families to be together (plus, we have a student ministry for junior and senior high that meets Thursdays, 6:30-8pm)
We ask that each week you come ready and eager to encounter God. Really, come ready for a life-changing experience every week, whether you've been a church-goer your whole life, or if you're showing up for the first time.
Come ready for God to REVEAL something new. If you are still alive, then God has a plan for you on this planet. Be ready to learn, to grow, to be changed in your worship of our living God.
Worship is also a time to REMEMBER. The best lessons in life need to be remembered. (We're such forgetful creatures.) So we faithfully remember the best things: God loves us. Jesus gave his life for us. The Spirit lives in us. There is hope!
Revealing and remembering demands that we RESPOND. Maybe it's saying a prayer for the first time. Maybe it's giving your life to Jesus and becoming a Christian. Maybe it's writing down an action or plan for the following week. Maybe it's giving back to God.
Finally, worship is a time to REJOICE. That doesn't mean you deny hard times, or pretend everything is OK. It means we take joy in the many blessings that all of have in Jesus: salvation, eternal life, hope, purpose, a relationship with God, and so much more. The bible says over and over, "Rejoice in the LORD," so that is what we do every week.
One last thing about RESPOND. We do not "pass the plate" for an offering during our worship service. Some people like to make giving a part of their weekly rhythm of worship so they place their offering in a secure box at the close of worship. This is a way of responding to God immediately in worship.
