What Christians Believe and Why
This Lent we are inviting everyone to be immersed in Adam Hamilton’s Creed. We talk a lot about what divides us, but have you ever wondered what unites us as followers of Jesus across the centuries? The fundamental confessions of faith found in the Apostles’ Creed have served as our core unifying factors through it all. Join us in worship as we discuss what we believe and why it matters.

Our prayer is that we will immerse ourselves in this study at home through daily readings and prayers or in small groups. Books are $12 and can be purchased during the week in the church office. You can also purchase a digital copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Please visit your campus website to find out about small group meeting times and locations.

Our Apex UMC Family is offering multiple worship services and events across our campuses
during Lent and Holy Week. All are welcome!


  • Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper: Tuesday, Feb. 13, 5-7 p.m., CLC gym. Come enjoy a great dinner prepared by the United Methodist Men! Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for kids. All receipts will go to the pastor’s discretionary fund, used by the faith community pastors throughout the year to respond to emergency and special needs for people in the greater Southwest Wake County area.
  • Ash Wednesday: Wednesday, Feb. 14, 12 and 7 p.m., sanctuary. Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent and is a day of fasting and prayer. It is also a time to publicly confess the sin that entangles us. Join us at this service of repentance and renewal as we enter the Lenten season. Nursery will be available for children 3 and under at both services.
  • Family Easter Experience: Saturday, March 24, 1:30-4 p.m., CLC. Road to Resurrection is an interactive event that guides families through the events surrounding Jesus’ death and resurrection. Your family will travel in a small group with a guide, waving palms as you enter Jerusalem, and visit stations from the Last Supper to the road to Emmaus. After your journey, children up to age 11 can participate in an Easter egg hunt! Please register in advance to designate a time period for your family to travel the Road to Resurrection. If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, please sign up online.
  • Palm/Passion Sunday: March 25. Music and scripture in worship will allow us to experience the moments leading to Jesus’ death – the Procession of Palms, the Last Supper, the Garden of Gethsemane, the trial before Pilate, and the crucifixion of our Savior.
  • Maundy Thursday: March 29, 7 p.m., sanctuary. Join us for a service of communion and optional footwashing as we commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus. The word Maundy comes from the Latin word “mandatum,” meaning “commandment,” and refers to Jesus’ commandment to love one another.
  • Good Friday: March 30, 7 p.m., sanctuary. Join us for a service remembering the final hours leading to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
  • Easter Sunday: April 16. Come and worship our risen Lord! Traditional services will be held at 8:15, 9:35 and 11 a.m. in the sanctuary. Contemporary services will be held at 9:35 and 11 a.m. in the Christian Life Center.

Please bring cut flowers, greenery and cuttings from your azaleas, flowering trees, etc. on Easter morning to decorate the cross beside Crossroads and celebrate that Christ has risen!
