Church of the Apostles is a congregation that embraces the diversity of human experience. We celebrate all cultural and racial identities. We honor and affirm all people’s expressions of their own gender identity and sexuality. We affirm and celebrate love between people.
We believe that all humans embody divine image, are called to do divine work as co-creators with God, and are equal recipients of divine grace through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that God’s work of love and reconciliation with creation wholly includes the life, love, and ministry of people of all genders, all races and all sexual orientations — simply put, all people.
We strongly uphold diversity of thought and being while creating meaningful worship together. There is no one creed, doctrine or belief required to collaborate with us in worship or in works.
ASH WEDNESDAY, 7PM
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. The name “Ash Wednesday” comes from the imposition of ashes, a traditional Jewish sign of penitence. Our ashes are made from palms from last year’s Palm Sunday service, and burned by members of the community. The ash is then mixed with anointing oil, and applied to the foreheads of those who participate in the Ash Wednesday liturgy. The ashes themselves are a symbol of our mortality.
COTA's Ash Wednesday liturgy takes place on February 14 at 7pm at the Fremont Abbey. Lent services begin the following Sunday, February 18th.
COTA'S FIFTH ALBUM, AVAILABLE NOW!
The Epiphany songs sung in this collection bring us from the revelation of God within and without, through God's liberating dream for our world, to transfiguration at the end of one difficult journey and the beginning of the next.
