Christmas at Cleveland

The Apex body has been provided with an incredible opportunity to serve and minister into the lives of families within the Dayton Public Schools (DPS) at a very special pancake breakfast on December 5th from 8:30 AM- 11:30 AM at Cleveland Elementary School on Dayton’s east side. Every elementary DPS student will receive an invitation to come with their families to enjoy a free breakfast and participate in a secret shop where they can choose gifts for their moms, dads or caregivers.

Best of all, we will have the special opportunity to share the Gospel with each of these families. We are expecting a large turnout, and since time is limited, your help is needed and would be deeply appreciated as God uses His church to serve the community!

There are three crucial ways you can get involved right now:

PRAYER- Though there are many needs as we prepare to serve the families in our city, it can’t be emphasized enough that prayer is our greatest priority as we ask God to prepare our hearts as well as those who we encounter along the way

TIME- We are needing 150 or more volunteers in order to properly staff this event, and there are a number of ways you can get plugged in including…greeting and hospitality, security, gift selection and wrapping, food prep, gatekeeping, security, gospel presentation/entertainment, set-up and take-down.

MONEY- One of the best ways you can get involved is to give a tax-deductible donation to Apex’s gift fund. Gifts can be made by check and dropped off at the church (remember to write Christmas at Cleveland in the memo), or you can give to the Christmas at Cleveland Elementary fund at the on-line giving page.

We are so excited to serve with you as we share the good news of the Gospel with our neighbors!
