The place to plug in!
You want to quickly feel at home, make friends, find Christian community, grow and serve with others? We encourage everyone to become involved in a Life Group! Life Groups are designed for every age and stage of life, and meet every Sunday morning and throughout the week. You will build strong relationships as you walk through life’s joys and trials together. You will study and discuss God’s Word and learn how to apply it to your everyday life. As a group, you will reach out into the community to share the love of Christ. Click the link below to see when and where each group meets. For more information, contact Pastor Tim Shaw.
Check out our current list of life groups!
Adult Discipleship Classes
On Sunday nights from 5:00 - 6:30pm, we have several discipleship classes for you to choose from. Classes are available for all stages of life! We offer childcare for your preschool age kids, and have Children's Worship Series (first through sixth grade) and Student Small Groups (seventh - twelfth grade) available for your older kids.
Men ministering in the body of Christ happens throughout all aspects of life at Apex Baptist Church. Every man is encouraged to join a Life Group where serving opportunities arise all the time. Men can serve the church body as deacons, ushers, guest service volunteers, teachers, committee leaders, mentors, and more!
Men's Bible Study
Once every month, the men of Apex Baptist gather on a Saturday morning for breakfast, prayer, and studying God’s Word. In addition, they gather for weekly Bible study and discussion at various times throughout the year. Our Men’s Ministry also hosts men’s conferences, often for the whole community, on a frequent basis. Check out our church calendar for more information.
Women have opportunities to minister in the body of Christ in lots of aspects of our church family. Every woman is encouraged to join a Life Group where occasions to serve arise all the time. Within Life Groups, she will also connect with a small group of women with whom to walk through life’s joys and trials. Women can also serve the church body as guest service volunteers, committee leaders, mentors, and more!
The Women's Ministry at Apex Baptist Church is for women of all ages and seasons of life. Our vision is to engage, equip, and encourage women to draw near to God by worshipping Him everywhere we go, becoming more like Him everyday, and serving everyone we meet. The women of Apex Baptist often gather for Bible studies, special events, conferences, weekend retreats, and fellowships. Our desire is to mentor and draw each woman into a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is to provide a safe place for women to meet God, make friends, and build community.
"In Christ, we who are many form one body, each member belongs to all the others."
Young Adult Ministry
The Young Adult ministry provides community for our young singles, college, and early career men and women. Although our young adults are involved throughout every aspect of our church family, they also gather to study and discuss God’s Word, build relationships through group activities and outreach events, and to simply have fun while doing life together! We strive to encourage a generation of young adults who are passionate about living for Christ and growing in their relationship with Him!
Senior Adult Ministry
Our senior adults have a great time enjoying life and serving together. Several senior adult Life Groups build close relationships, check in on each other during the week, and study Scripture together. Our seniors are actively serving in our community, such as providing Christmas boxes, dinners, and homemade desserts for Durham Rescue Mission. They take many fascinating excursions together - some local, some overnight trips.
Our Treasured Friends ministry reaches out to our members who can no longer venture out to church who may be at home or in nursing facilities.
Ignite Marriage Ministry
Our vision for Ignite at Apex Baptist is to teach biblical principles that result in couples being properly prepared for marriage, existing marriages affirmed and strengthened, hurting marriages healed, and the life-long covenant of marriage embraced.
Apex Baptist hosts an annual weekend marriage conference that provides much needed preventative maintenance for every marriage.
Are you still dating your spouse? Couples with stronger relationships spend time together.
Once a month we, the Date Night Co-Op Ministry, challenge you to make your marriage important and date your spouse. This co-op program is for married couples who desire to keep their marriage strong by dating on a regular basis. Date night is for couples that attend Apex Baptist Church regularly with children aged Newborn – 12 years. Date Night consists of ten calendared dates. Date Night is $25 per couple and each couple will earn eight dates with their spouse by serving two nights.
Date nights which will be held on a Friday night once a month during the traditional school year from August to May. The scheduled date nights are as follows:
- September 25, 2015
- October 9, 2015
- November 13, 2015
- December 18, 2015
- January 15, 2016
- February 12, 2016
- March 11, 2016
- April 8, 2016
- May 13, 2016
The hours of date night are from 6pm to 10pm. The location of Date Night is at the Downtown Campus. The doors of the church will be locked for safety purposes, and children will not be permitted after 6:30pm to avoid disrupting the class time.
Benefits to Parents:
- Strengthen your marriage by dating again like you used to do before you had children.
- Save money on childcare – With this program you’ll get 8 evenings of childcare for less than the amount you’d pay a babysitter for one night.
- Worry-free childcare – Your children will be in good hands with organized, Christ-centered activities.
- Because this is a co-op program, you are helping other couples have the opportunity to date as well.
Action packed for the kids. They will enjoy the evening as much as you do.
