Welcome to The Pulse!  Please take a minute to check out what's happening at Church of the Apostles.
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
+ Please pray for all who visited our church on Easter Sunday, especially those who do not yet know and follow Christ. Pray that their hearts are turning to him, and that they can see that the good news of Christ's resurrection does indeed have the "ring of truth!"

+ Pray for the children of our church, that they would grow "in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." {Luke 2:52}

+ Pray for those in our church who serve in marketplace jobs, that they would find ways to reflect the light and love of Christ to those around them in the workplace.

Would you like to share faith, love, hopes, challenges and LIFE with an Apostles sister believer?
The Women's Mentoring Ministry of Church of the Apostles seeks to create a welcoming environment, meeting women wherever they find themselves on their spiritual journey and equipping them to invest in one another's spiritual growth as disciples of Jesus Christ.
This mentoring program is an opportunity to connect women at Apostles and to encourage them to walk through life together with a sister believer and share life's experiences while growing in their own faith. It is not intended to take the place of needed or desired counseling.
Connection Forms are now available for those interested in being paired as either a Mentor or Mentee for the 2018-2019 Mentoring Program. Forms must be submitted by April 27.

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.

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.
