Welcome to The Pulse!  Please take a minute to check out what's happening at Church of the Apostles.

Please join your church in praying for the following requests for the life and mission of the church:
+ Please pray for our church in the new year, that the Lord would lead us in this way: "He [Christ] is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ." {Colossians 1:28}

+ Pray also for our upcoming January sermon series, Christians Amid Controversy, that God would give us knowledge, understanding and wisdom from his word regarding the controversies found in our nation and world today. 

+ Pray for our middle and high school students, that they would know the love of God for them that conquers every anxiety or fear, and outshines every other worldly pleasure.
