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

+ Pray for our Sunday school classes starting this week, that the Lord would grow us in our knowledge and love of God. 

+ Pray for all parents in our church, for wisdom from God's Spirit as they shepherd their kids.

+ Pray also for our kids,  that they would be led by God's word and Spirit in their thoughts, words, deeds and witness to their friends.

WHAT'S HAPPENING @ APOSTLES
From The Pastoral Search Team
The Pastoral Search Team is in the process of both getting a clear sense of the heart-beat of Apostles and discerning God's will around who He is calling to serve as our next Senior Pastor. Currently, the team is preparing the Church Profile and the Pastoral Profiles which will help us in that task. While there are expected to be multiple avenues for feedback and communication, if you want to communicate with this team you can also do so via searchteam@apostles-raleigh.org. Thank you for continuing to intercede for this process and for the team. May God's will become clear.

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.
