APPS during the pandemic: The next drive-thru distribution for APPS after school program is scheduled for Wednesday, March 17. 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
