Kids Sunday:  Third Sunday of each month there are special activities for kids after a brief stay in worship

December 23, every year:  Our Annual Christmas celebration at 7:00 pm.  We have a variety of offerings often including a play, choir singing, carol singing, and readings and prayers appropriate for the season.  All are welcome.

Yard Sales:  We have two each year.  One is normally held the Friday and Saturday before Mother’s Day.  The other is during COLORFEST WEEKEND.  Both include a bake sale and our colorfest menu includes inexpensive hot dogs, sliders and drinks.  We also offer different types of fudge.  The proceeds from these yard sales usually benefit both the church and our giving to those in need outside of the church.

Welcome to worship at Apples Church
Apples UCC is a historic church in the Thurmont community.  We value our United Church of Christ tradition which welcomes everyone. You can find our sense of spirituality in the informality of our worship, our openness to all ages and circumstances, our valuing of family and community, our pride inour historic sanctuary, and our love of music.  We hope you enjoy worshipping with us and we invite you to join us.
