2023 Year In Review

Ministry & Financial Report: 2023 Year in Review

Dear APC Church Family & Friends,

Wishing you a blessed time this Christmas and a fruitful 2024!

It is always a joy to look back at the end of each year and thank the Lord for all the wonderful things He has done. We are grateful for every opportunity given to us to serve Him, serve His people and bless the lives of those around us. Our desire is to re-present Him accurately to those in the church, the city, the nation, and the nations.

As a church we continue to stay focused on our Biblical mandate to make disciples (Matthew 28:19), to nurture every believer into Christlikeness (Ephesians 4:11-13) and to equip God's people for the work of the ministry. At APC every believer is a minister!

A big thank you to all our staff, pastors, volunteers and to all of you who are part of what God is doing at APC!
