Sign up for APC Men’s Study on Mondays from October 21 - November 25. A six-week video and discussion series, led by Elder Ed Culbreath, will take place on Mondays from 7-8:30pm at the Russell Road Campus Chapel.  Authentic men are leaders by God’s calling -- whether it’s with their families, their vocation, or their church. God has a very clear purpose and vision for men that He lays out for us in His Word. This particular series is entitled, “A Man and His Traps” and is designed to help men avoid or escape the destruction that falling into the common manhood traps can bring. Please sign up at either campus after worship on Sunday.


Sign up for Men’s Breakfast on Saturday morning, November 9. APC’s men will gather on Saturday morning from 8-10:15am at the Russell Road Campus for a time of food, fellowship, and sharing. Our special speaker will be our own Tom Tarrants, recent past President of the C.S. Lewis Institute.  Tom will address the topic of men discipling men: why it’s so important; what it looks like; and how to get started. He’ll also consider the challenge of forming friendships in an age of extreme polarization. Please sign up at either campus after worship on Sunday.
