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 non-Christian friends around us who might join us for Easter Sunday or the Egg Hunt outreach on Saturday, that they might enter into God's family by believing in Jesus and being saved.

+ Pray for all who are sick and in need of healing in our church. Pray especially for Danny, Amelia, Pat, Landis, Mac, Larry, Laura and any others, that they may be encouraged, healed and strengthened by God's power and comfort. 

+ Pray that our church would conclude Lent with humility before God, acknowledging before him the ways in which we sin against him, and our need for the Cross on Good Friday. 
Palm Sunday

The Hour Has Come ~ Rev. Eric J. Bolash

Upcoming Construction
Parking lot construction and Church at North Hills Street road closure will begin on  Monday, April 15.  Please take a moment to go over the details and map {link below} which explain how this will affect parking, traffic patterns and entrances into our property and building.

Rick Gulino,
Pray for patience as we navigate the coming and going around our property.

+ Pray for the staff as they plan and prepare to make areas accessible as possible during this temporary work.

+ Pray for the safety and efficiency of the construction workers like Rick {pictured here}, many of whom are away from family.

+ Pray especially for those that will be working right outside our doors ~ who have never been in our church, possibly no church at all ~ during Holy Week, that they may feel the move of the Holy Spirit as we commemorate and celebrate Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are excited to see how God will use this for His Kingdom! //  Contact Lee Hilts or Laura Witter with questions or concerns.  

Easter Lily Dedications
We will be decorating the sanctuary with lilies this Easter season. If you would like to give one in honor or in memory of someone, email Laura { laura@apostles-raleigh.org } with (1) "in honor of" or "in memory of", ( 2 ) the person's name, and (3) who is giving the gift.  The list of dedications will be in the Easter Sunday bulletin. A $15 minimum donation, which supports the flower ministry, is suggested.
