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:
 

 
+ Please pray for our Church Health Survey, that as members and attenders give feedback, the Lord would help us to see how he wants to mature and develop Church of the Apostles in our disciple-making.

+ Pray for friends who do not know Jesus, and especially for the opportunity to invite them to join us for Invitation Sunday on October 21. Pray for the Lord to bring them to himself.

+ Please continue to pray for the people of Wilmington, and for Christ Our Hope Anglican as they show the compassion of Jesus with the people devastated by Hurricane Florence.

WHAT'S HAPPENING @ APOSTLES

Our staff and leadership team have created a survey to gather feedback from the entire church body.  Our intent is to understand the needs and effectiveness of our church, which then informs our strategy and resource allocation. We invite you to be honest and direct, yet respectful. This is the Bride of Christ we are evaluating! 


The survey should take less than 20 minutes.   We look forward to reporting the results back to you and to moving forward, together and stronger.

Call to Prayer!
We encourage you to pray with us ~ starting October 14 ~ for  Invitation Sunday on October 21. Please take a few minutes at  7:00am and 7:00pm  each day to pray for the service and the people that you will, or have already invited.


Bring the whole family for a time of food, fun and fellowship!
