At Apostles By-the-Sea we love Jesus and we want everyone to know the love and joy of living life in fellowship with him. We are convinced that life with Jesus is better than any other kind of life. Over and over in the Gospels we read about people who meet Jesus and he is never who they expected him to be. And when they meet him, something happens, something changes. People are never quite the same after they encounter Jesus. Some are fed. Some are healed. Some are forgiven. Some get mad! Some are known more deeply than ever before. Some are even raised from the dead! No one stays the same.
During his earthly ministry, Jesus called people to himself and then sent them out to share his love with the world. These ‘sent ones’ are called Apostles - a word that means those who have been sent. That’s who we hope to be: People gathered together to worship God, to be nourished by his Word and Sacraments, and then sent out with his life, love, and grace into this world.
That's our prayer for anyone who comes to one of our services. And we invite you to come - whether you live here full time or are here for vacation! And when you do come, we pray that you will have an encounter with Jesus. And no matter who you expect him to be, we hope that he will surprise you and challenge you.
So come be fed and healed and forgiven. You are welcome here.

The Collect for the

Let your continual mercy, O Lord, cleanse and defend your Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without your help, protect and govern it always by your goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
