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:
 
+ Give thanks for a great year with our 11 Fellows! And pray that as they have their celebration banquet  on Saturday, the Lord will remind them of all he has done in their lives this year, and of his commitment to lead them in what's next. 

+ Pray for this year's Guatemala Team as they prepare to travel to Guatemala City  June 16-23 to serve alongside The Potter's House ministry, caring for the families living in the community near the city dump. Pray that this year's team will be filled with the love of Christ and the power of his Spirit.  

+ Pray for new growth in our church, that the Lord would add to our number those being saved, and also expand our reach so that we join him in further loving people in our city and people from every nation.

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

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.
