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 Missionaries of Apostles who are reaching out to new incoming college students as the new year begins--for Marion Dewar working with sorority students at NC State with Cru, Brian Mann overseeing InterVarsity's nationwide ministry to students in the Greek system, Terri Shell overseeing outreach to college students in NC and SC with InterVarsity, John Farwell working with Athletes In Action, and Robin Bolash reaching women at Meredith College. 

+ Pray for our church's Prayer Ministry, that many in our church would desire to be prayed for, that the Lord would move and speak and act powerfully as we pray, and that he would transform us through his work in prayer. 

+ Please pray for teachers and students in Wake County schools who will return to the classroom  next Monday, that Christian students and teachers would be salt and light, bearing witness to the love of Christ with their classmates and students.
