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 government leaders. Open a news page, read some of the articles, and then pray for our leaders:  "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people-for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." {1 Timothy 2:1-4} 

+ Pray also for Rev Curt Solomon and our church plant, Christ Our Hope Anglican Church in Wilmington, NC. Pray for the Lord to continue to strengthen them and build them as a church aimed at loving and serving their city in the name of Jesus. Pray for the Lord to protect and guide Curt and his family. 

+ Pray that as we process the results of the recent church health survey, the Lord would lead us to actions and efforts that bring the people of our church to greater maturity in Christ, and that bring the gospel into the lives of people around us.

WHAT'S HAPPENING @ APOSTLES

New year!  New logo! 
We are excited to reveal our new church logo!  A lot of thought and prayer went into this new design and we are thankful to the volunteers and staff involved in the process.  Our previous logo, with the streams, was associated with Anglican Mission in America (AMiA) which we are no longer affiliated.  We are affiliated with the global Anglican church through the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and the Diocese of Christ our Hope.  We hope that this logo will firmly represent who we are as a body grounded in Christ, open to all and led by the Holy Spirit!
