- Christmas Events:
During our Advent series we are going to rest in the words of the prophet Isaiah and in the words of Mary as they wait with great expectation for the child who would change everything. Visit our Advent website for weekly videos, small group discussion questions, activities for families, devotions, mission opportunities, events and Christmas Eve times. Use this website individually or as a group.

- Apex Historical Tour:
Apex UMC is one of the sites on the Apex Historical Tour on Sunday, Dec. 8, from 1-5 p.m. What a wonderful way to share the renovations of our beautiful sanctuary and our church history with those from our greater community. We are seeking those that can bring 3 dozen cookies or finger foods to the kitchen in Fellowship Hall before church that morning or Saturday evening, and hands to help with the set-up, serving, and clean-up.
- Christmas Trees at Neighbor Boy:
If you missed the Christmas tree pre-order fundraiser, we've got good news! If you buy your tree or greenery from the Neighbor Boy lot and let them know you are with AUMC, they will give 10% of the price back to our youth. Please spread the word to your family and friends!

- FAMILY NEWS: WWCM Thanksgiving Meals:
Thanksgiving is a time to remember the blessings we have. For most of us, that is done with family gathered around a bountiful dinner. Imagine not being able to provide that dinner for your family. That is a real possibility for some families in the Apex and New Hill areas. For many years, Western Wake Crisis Ministry has distributed Thanksgiving meals to those who do not have the means to provide their own. WWCM receives these meals through donations from individuals in the community. Since 2000, the members of Apex United Methodist Church have donated meals to this cause. The response has been generous and has grown every year. This year, our Family of Faith Communities donated 245 meals! Thank you for sharing your blessings with others!
