PRAY WITHOUT CEASING
Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
 

+ Give thanks for Paul Morales and Emily Gebbie, who lead our Student Ministry with the love of Christ for our students, and the desire to see each student learn to know and follow Jesus as Savior and Lord. Pray for the Lord to deliver Paul and Emily from all evil, and to lead them in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

+ Pray for our Mission Partner, JusticeMatters, that the Lord would lead them to assist with their work in humanitarian immigration, anti-trafficking work, and legal assistance among people in our community who cannot afford representation. Pray that those who are poor, or immigrants or simply in crisis can see the love of Christ in the work of JusticeMatters.

+ Pray also for our government and leaders, that amidst turmoil, the Lord would still lead and guide those in leadership toward what is just, righteous and beneficial for every person in our nation.

THIS SUNDAY @ APOSTLES

WHAT'S HAPPENING @ APOSTLES

Hearing loop System in Sanctuary
We're excited to announce the installation of a Telecoil Loop
Hearing Aid System in the main sanctuary. This system
requires no external apparatus to access the signal and bring it into your hearing aids or cochlear implants which have the T-Coil system installed. Change your hearing aid to the "T" setting to access the system through your own  device. The system will then send the sound directly from the sound board to your hearing aid, greatly improving the signal and minimizing any static and interference.
 
You may have to see your audiologist or hearing aid specialist to have T-Coil activated. It's a simple procedure and is usually provided at no charge.
 
Parenting with a Purpose ~ September 22 
Come for a full day of teaching and skill building designed for parents and rooted in God's word, presented by House of Hope. We believe that God has a heart for families and that he is able to equip parents for the task of leading and guiding their children into successful Christian lives.  Workshop held at Apostles.
