Welcome to The Pulse!  Please take a minute to check out what's happening in the life of COTA.
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
+ Please pray for our upcoming Great Egg Hunt outreach the  Saturday before Easter, that many friends and neighbors would come at the invitation of our church, and that they would hear the gospel and believe. 

+ Give thanks for how the Lord has healed and encouraged people who have gone to receive prayer ministry on Sundays during Communion and at other times of the week in our church. 

+ Pray for Archbishop Foley Beach, that he would lead all of us in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) to proclaim the gospel in all its fulness, to the glory of God.
