Our desire is to make your experience at Apex Baptist Church meaningful. Just by visiting, you are already a part of the story God is writing in and through our church. From the moment you drive into the parking lot, we hope you sense the excitement and welcoming atmosphere.
As we begin to regather in-person, some of our protocols and activities will look a little different. Below are some tips and information which will explain how to prepare for your visit with us during this transitional time of regathering.
WORSHIP SERVICE TIMES: 9:00am or 11:00am
FIRST TIME GUEST? Click here to let us know who you are - we'd love to connect you with one of our pastors!
What do I do when I arrive?
Please be sure that each family member arrives wearing a mask (ages 5 years and up) if medically able. We recommend that you arrive about 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the service you are attending so that you can park, check in, and allow time for the ushers to seat you.
Please enter the building from either the back, Main Street doors (the doors which are closest to the reserved senior parking area at the top of the back lot), or from the front parking lot Main Street doors (which are directly under the overhang and across from the front office). No other entrances will be open at this time. After service concludes, you may leave through any nearest, convenient exit.
What do I wear?
You are welcome at Apex Baptist just as you are! You will see people in coats and ties, in jeans and t-shirts, and everything in between. We meet to worship the Lord and fellowship with others. We believe that it's the attitude of your heart that matters to God, rather than your physical appearance.
Where do I park?
When you visit Apex Baptist, we have several parking lots that you can use. The front lot which faces Chatham St. is reserved for first-time guests. Our back lot has a section reserved for seniors or those needing assistance into the building, and the rest of the lot may be used by anyone. For other parking areas that can be used which are not on our property, Click Here for those options (please keep in mind that we are not running golf carts or other transportation between lots at this time).
What style of music is used?
We sing contemporary worship songs and hymns in our worship services. Our desire is to direct our worship to God. We sing songs to please the heart of God, not for a certain style or preference. In a worship service at Apex Baptist, you will enjoy worship led by a band and by the worship choir.
What will my children do while I'm in the Worship Service?
Children are important to Apex Baptist! We are currently working hard to bring back classes for newborns through 5th graders. Our current, anticipated date of return for these classes is February 7, 2021. Regardless, our two service times fully welcomes all members of your family. To help assist parents in keeping children of all ages engaged while in service, our Next Gen team is providing weekly bags with materials that your children to help them stay engaged while in service. These bags are located as you enter either the Worship Center, or the Fellowship Hall. Online content also continues to be available until further notice.
Where do I sit?
After you enter the building and are checked in, please wait in line for an usher to seat you and your family. We will fill the Worship Center first (using appropriate spacing between family groups) and once that room is full, attendees will then be directed to the Fellowship Hall where ushers will continue to assist with seating. Please know that the Fellowship Hall will use both video streaming and live personnel to help the experience be a quality one which is comparable to being in the Worship Center.
Please note that during this time, we are unable to offer coffee, snacks, or communion, and we will not pass an offering plate. Common gathering areas will be closed, and we ask that any small gatherings to talk and catch up are conducted outside of the building. Please know that we will need to clear the Worship Center and Fellowship Hall efficiently, as staff and volunteers will be santizing surfaces and seats between services.
