Daily Devotionals

Start your day off with a dose of inspiration! APC’s Daily Devotionals are delivered via email on weekday mornings, Monday through Friday. Written by our pastors, church leaders and members of the congregation, the devotionals offer a brief personal message, a verse of scripture and a prayer. Filled with stories, humor, insights and honesty, reading the Daily Devotionals helps us get to know one another and offers the opportunity to reflect on the role faith plays in our daily lives.

Please note that APC’s Daily Devotionals are a separate mailing list from our weekly newsletter, “The Good News.”  You may subscribe or unsubscribe to the Daily Devotionals without affecting your receipt of “The Good News” or other church communications.
