Arlington Interfaith Council
APC is a proud member of the Arlington Interfaith Council (AIC). This group of local religious congregations works together to meet urgent and ongoing human needs in our community.
Crop Hunger Walks
APC members regularly participate in the Arlington CROP Hunger Walks, which are designed to take a stand against hunger in our world and raise awareness and funds for international and local hunger-fighting. Members also grow or bake items for our summertime CROP Table. For more information, contact the church office.

APC provides financial support to local organizations working with those in our community who face homelessness, hunger, alcoholism or drug abuse, the need for medical care, illiteracy, and domestic violence. Examples of these organizations include:
- Arlington-Alexandria Coalition for the Homeless (AACH)

Overseas Mission Support
APC is also developing a close relationship with the ministry efforts of Reverend Samuel Bissé of the Eseka Presbytery in Cameroon. Reverend Bissé oversees serveral prayer ministries, as well as heads an orphanage and agricultural training school within the Presbytery. Fifteen children under Reverend Bissé’s care were able to attend school for one year because of the financial assistance provided by APC in 2007.
