Upcoming Events at JAPC
Winter Church Office Hours: Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Friday 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Worship with us at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday when our Interim Pastor, Rev. Dr. Ken Kaibel, will preach on I Corinthians 1:18-31. His sermon is entitled, “Foolishness”. A special meeting of the congregation will follow worship this Sunday, January 29. The purpose is to vote on the session recommendation to sell the property at 971 Fischer in Detroit. This property was originally purchased to be a second parking lot for the church, but your session feels that this is not practical considering the needs of the congregation and the costs involved.
