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

+ Pray for our church, that in the new year ahead we will become more like Jesus, knowing, worshiping and serving him in the world.

+ Give thanks for how God has richly provided our church with gifted people and abundant and financial resources again and again in the last 20 years.

+ Pray for those who are feeling the loss of loved ones, that the Lord will comfort and reassure them with his presence.

POTLUCK SIGN UP HERE



There will be an informational meeting on January 19 for anyone interested in the Rwanda Partnership Trip this summer. {July 17-25, 2020}.  This trip will be an opportunity to build new and strengthen existing relationships with our Rwandan brothers and sisters at Church of Gikomero, our sister church, and the Shyogwe Diocese.  Contact Teresa Kincaid with any questions: teresa@apostles-raleigh.org .

Division is nothing new and yet many of us feel ill-equipped to bridge the numerous divides in our current culture. Join us for a evening of discussion as we hear from two authors,
Amy Julia Becker and Natasha Sistrunk Robinson, who have spent a lot of time on this topic, and reflecting on what Jesus means when he calls us to "love our neighbors"--regardless of our own social,  ethnic, religious, or cultural background.
