Donate to the Lancaster County Council of Churches Food Hub – Council is challenging the Church of the Apostles congregation to raise at least $10,000 to be donated to the LCCC new Food Hub in honor of our 40th Anniversary. This fits in perfectly with our “Feeding the Hungry” mission, and we are confident that we can exceed this goal. To learn more about the Food Hub please click here. Please specify the “Food Hub” on the donation page when sending your gift.
Support us when you shop online – When you shop online at Amazon through this link, a portion of what you spend comes back to COA to support our ministries. It doesn’t cost you any extra, but helps us out a lot.
Support us when you buy your groceries – Would you like to order gift cards to use at Stauffer’s, Giant, or Weis through our Market Basket program? You get the full face value of the card you purchase, and the church gets a donation of 5% of the card’s value which support our outreach ministries. For more information, contact the church office; be sure to include “Market Basket, Coordinator Carol Nielsen” in your message.
Support scholarships to Apostles Community Preschool or Apostles Academy of Arts & Sciences – These funds enable low-income students in our community to attend our church’s top-rated private preschool, and enroll in private one-on-one music lessons with our Academy instructors. Please specify which scholarship fund you wish to support when making your one-time gift here.
Sponsor worship flowers and bulletins – The cost of flowers and bulletins for our Sunday worship services averages $140 per week. Sponsors can remember or honor a loved one through their gift, while helping to offset the cost of these important elements of our weekly worship. We suggest a contribution of $35, but any amount is welcome. If you would like to sponsor flowers, please mention “Worship Flowers, Coordinators Dawn Dougherty/Bonnie Jolly” on our contact form and include the date you wish to sponsor and the wording of your dedication (“In honor of” or “In memory of” plus the name of the person you wish to honor). You may then either bring a check to the church office, or make a one-time online donation here.
