Michelle (not her real name) asks...
“Is there any way that you all could help us get our gas turned
back on? My husband and I are having a hard time coming up with the
money. We have two girls, and one on the way. My husband and I would
be willing to donate time, or something, to you and your church if you
Christian Apostolic Church responds...
“Yes. In addition to our Food Pantry
Ministry, which can provide food for your family during tight
times, we have an additional ministry that helps with needs such as
your current situation. It is called Christian
Apostolic Assistance Program (CAAP for short).
There is an application (Family Assistance
Request Form) that must be filled out. We have chosen to not accept
applications via either email, fax, or mail. You would have to apply in
person. If you are married, we prefer for both you and your spouse to
apply in person, although we'll understand if this is not possible.
However, if you are married, both you and your spouse must sign the
application, even if your spouse cannot come with you in person to
submit the application.
For information on how to find our church, either
view the map and driving directions on our website, or call us for
directions at 304-624-4459.
The best time to apply (submit the application) is while our Food
Pantry staff are here on the last two Fridays of each month, from
Noon to 3:30 pm. However, you can
apply at other times during the week, provided you check with us
first, by phone or email:

Coordinator, Sister Cindy Murphy:

|Or contact Pastor Doug Joseph
or Sister LaDonna Joseph, at the church:
Please note that there are certain documents you may need to
bring with you when you submit the application (current pay stubs,
current utility bills, etc). See the application for details. We can
make copies of your documents here, so there is no need to do so
You can download the Family Assistance Request Form
(Application) from this website (below) or you can pick up a copy in
person. But remember: It should not be submitted by email, fax, or
mail. You should submit it in person.
After your submission, your application will be considered by the
CAAP Advisory Committee, a select group of CAC members. If our CAAP
ministry is able to help, and your application is approved and
receives an allocation, you will be notified and receive further
In any event, we will also help you with food (no application
needed) and with prayer.”
