APPS during the pandemic: The drive-thru distribution for APPS after school program scheduled for Wednesday, December 16th has been rescheduled for Wednesday, December 23rd due to expected inclement weather. The distribution time on the 23rd will be from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Since we are unable to meet in person, the APPS After School Program is holding “drive-thru APPS” for the children and their families. The families drive -thru the parking lot in the rear of the church to receive a box filled with a home-cooked meal, a Bible story, treats and goodies for the kids and a coupon for a free pizza from Papa John’s. It is so wonderful to have an opportunity for a brief visit with the kids as they drive-thru with their parents!
We will hold a drive-thru once per month, while we are unable to meet in person. Our first drive-thru was October 21st and we served 17 APPS families! The dates of the next APPS drive-thru are November 18th and December 16th.
During normal times: APPS (A Place People Share) is a Wednesday after-school program that ministers to the youth of Saint Paul’s and other youth from local Elementary schools. The program is for children Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, and is staffed by a committed group of volunteers. Our church bus picks up at local schools. All children of the appropriate age are welcome.
The program includes the following:
A healthy snack
Supervised physical activities and games
A Christian lesson
Homework time with adult assistance
A nutritious meal freshly prepared in our kitchen and served in a family-style setting
