What would happen if you stopped talking about love and started loving people? Think about how that would transform your day-to-day interactions and relationships. In the gospel of Luke, there’s a story about four friends who bring their paralyzed friend to Jesus. They have heard that Jesus heals people and they desire nothing less for their friend. But when they arrive at the house where Jesus is speaking, it’s so crowded they can’t get in the door. So in Luke 5:19, they get creative, digging a hole in the roof and lowering down their friend to the feet of Jesus. Jesus sees the faith of the friends and heals the paralyzed man.
For these friends, their faith wasn’t just a head thing or a heart thing. It changed the way they acted and lived. They loved their friend well and it caused them to live differently. And that’s what 519 Church wants to be – a group of people who love well and live differently together.
This vision emerged in 2011 as a group of Christians gathered to rethink how church is done. And there was no better place to try this than in the nearby, rapidly-growing zip code of 27519. That’s how 519 Church was born.
Grounded in the Methodist tradition, 519 is one of several faith communities connected to Apex United Methodist Church. Together these communities form a large family of faith. Like most families, we pool our resources to do more together than any one church could do alone.
We invite you to join the 519 movement.
Worship Times: Sundays 9:30am & 11am
