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 the Patel family, with the loss of Urvi's mother this week. Pray for them as they grieve, and pray that the love of Christ would be evident to her family. 

+ Pray for those who are sick and in need of healing in our church, that the Lord would make them well in body and spirit. 

+ Pray for the upcoming Holy Week services, that as we follow the week of Jesus' passion, we would be moved to adore and serve him with our whole hearts. Pray also that unbelieving friends will join us and meet Christ!

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.
