Each week, during worship service, we will be watching short interviews from our members as they talk about their story and how APC has played a piece in it. After they are shown in worship they will be uploaded below.

I had preconceived notions of what it meant to be a Christian, I grew up in a church and I thought it meant you had to have everything together. You had to look and act a certain way. Not do these things but definitely do these. As I started to spend time with people from APC, people who are really following Jesus, I learned that it was ok that I am imperfect. I’m a wretch just like anyone else…walking with Jesus and following Jesus you will learn that it is ok and you’ll learn a different way to live.

The food pantry has had an impact on me. I don’t think people realize the extent of the need in a community like this. It is a great community, a very affluent community and yet we are surrounded by people who are struggling. Really struggling to live. The pantry really brought a smile to my face and it was my challenge to make sure that the people who came left with a smile on their face.

What [Crossroads] did for my brother was it gave a him a family, it gave him brothers, it gave him the community he needed when I couldn’t be there… and now he’s inviting me back in to his community. Welcoming me. I realized in that moment the impact that this ministry has on high school and middle school kids.

This community is 300 years old, that is amazing to me. That is such a privilege for me to be a part of that heritage. People 300 years ago were trying to bring the light of Chirst into this community in the same way that we are today. That is so powerful to me.
Marla Golden – February 9
APC is a community that walks the talk. I’ve learned so much about scripture and about Jesus. And about what community looks likes and what service looks like. My faith has just continued to grow so it’s more of an everyday part of my life as opposed to what it used to be.
Sandra Oliveira – February 2
Last year my son Mikey passed away…God had other plans. God is amazing, even in the hardest moments, even though I may not undertand why. APC has been more than I could ever ask or pray for. That is priceless and that is such a gift from God.
Mark and Angela Setaro – January 26
Our faith has grown so much through the education that we have received here about the bible and what Jesus is all about. We both grew up as Christians but it was nothing like coming here and learning more in-depth what it means to be a Christ follower.
Dan Domenech – January 19
I believe God was created in community; God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. And He asks us to live in community as well. …Surrounding my kids with so many wonderful people that have similar values that can help guide them, answer questions and give them different perspectives…these christian leaders with critical love for them is so critical for our family.
Melissa Mikolon – January 12
My first experience at APC was the evening Christmas service…I was not expecting to see what I saw. Not only did I see beautiful Christmas decorations…but the atmosphere was filled by the people. People that I have never even met before welcomed me with open arms. I remember walking into a place I had never been before and I felt like I was home.
