Welcome to The Pulse!  Please take a minute to check out what's happening at Church of the Apostles.
 
PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 
+ Please pray for guest who will attend our Great Egg Hunt outreach at Carroll Middle School this Saturday, 10am-noon, that they would feel welcomed and sense the love of Christ from our church.

+ Please also pray for non-Christians who will join us for Easter Sunday, that they will see the reality of the resurrection and the work of Christ to save them, and come to believe in and follow him.

+ Pray for protection from the enemy for our pastors and church staff during Holy Week and afterward, that they would abide firmly in Christ.

THIS SUNDAY @ APOSTLES
Easter Sunday |  John 20:1-18
The Ring of Truth ~ Rev. Patrick Dominguez

Please note that service times on Easter Sunday will be *9:00am* and 11:00am.  There will be fellowship time between services.

Our Easter offering this year will go towards one of our local Mission Partners, Justice Matters.   Justice Matters provides empowering legal services to our vulnerable and marginalized neighbors, specializing in trauma-informed immigration and family law services that protect children and help survivors of human trafficking and other traumas rebuild their lives.  Please consider how you can partner with the JusticeMatters team with your gift.


It will be one of the  highest attended days of the year for your church. It may be the highest.   There will be some people you don't know. Some of them are guests. Others are members who attend infrequently.   You have an opportunity to make a gospel impression on these people with a few simple acts. Indeed, you have an opportunity to make an eternal difference. Here are nine servant actions for you to consider.  {by Thom Rainer}

VBS 2018
Sunday, June 24 | 5-8pm 
June 25 - 28 | 9am-12pm

This week we will venture onto an uncharted island where kids are rescued by Jesus!  They will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through every storm in life.  They'll learn to hold onto God's promises when they are lonely, they worry, they struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless.  Each day at Shipwrecked VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures.

NOTE for NON-MEMBERS:
To inquire about registering a child ages 4 and under who do not regularly attend worship at the Church of the Apostles, please contact Stacey Wiley {919-782-0550 x 22} to request registration information.
