In Remembrance of
Shari Beers

Shari lost her battle with cancer Monday, August 19th just a few days shy of her 59th birthday. Shari served Agape' in many capacities including as a Board Member. She will be missed by many, her life was one of service and she made a difference in the lives she touched with her compassion, laughter and love.

Shari's Celebration of Life will be held in September. We will announce information as soon as arrangements are finalized.

Please enjoy some butter pecan ice cream and think of Shari.

Agape MCC is now set up to receive money through Zelle.



Use the agapemccchurch@gmail.com email address to send donations/tithes and the funds will be deposited into our church account that day. There are no fees associated with using Zelle. 

Most major banking institutions are supporting Zelle, if your bank does not, you can download the Zelle app from you app store at no cost.

How do I use Zelle?
To access Zelle, bank customers can go to their online banking website or use their bank Mobile app, as well as going through the Zelle mobile app. After setting up Zelle with your email address or mobile number, here’s how a typical send transaction works
  1. Set up and send. Add or select your recipient, enter the amount you want to send, and choose an account to fund your payment. Carefully review and validate the details of your payment before you send it. As most payments are sent in “real-time,” sending money with Zelle is much like exchanging cash with someone.
  2. Recipient is notified. Your recipient will be notified by email or text message with the details of your payment and instructions on how to receive the money if action is necessary.
  3. Recipient registers. (agapemccchurch@gmail.com is registerred)
  4. Money is deposited. Once your recipient has registered and linked their eligible account to their email or mobile phone number, the money is deposited into the recipient’s account, often within minutes, depending on where they bank.

Thank you in advance for the many ways you support our community!
It is that time of year again.

Dear God,

I am in awe of the infinite universe with our miraculous Earth that is so delicately balanced within it, and that you have given us life and the ability to appreciate it.

I pray that the human race will learn to recognize these gifts, appreciate our commonalities and become more tolerant of our differences.
