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 students who are being Confirmed this Sunday by Bishop Steve Breedlove. Pray that as he lays hands on them, they will be anointed by the Holy Spirit for a life of serving Christ!

+ Pray also for the Noël's concert this Friday, that our friends and neighbors will respond to invitations and be drawn to Jesus through their performance. Pray that it will be a joyful performance for Jonathan and Amanda!

+ Please pray for the work of our Mission Partner NeighborHealth, as they work to provide excellent, compassionate and accessible healthcare to those in need.

Would you like to share faith, love, hopes, challenges and LIFE with an Apostles sister believer?
The Women's Mentoring Ministry of Church of the Apostles seeks to create a welcoming environment, meeting women wherever they find themselves on their spiritual journey and equipping them to invest in one another's spiritual growth as disciples of Jesus Christ.
This mentoring program is an opportunity to connect women at Apostles and to encourage them to walk through life together with a sister believer and share life's experiences while growing in their own faith. It is not intended to take the place of needed or desired counseling.
Connection Forms are now available for those interested in being paired as either a Mentor or Mentee for the 2018-2019 Mentoring Program. Forms must be submitted by FRIDAY, APRIL 27.

Men of Apostles ... bring your sons, your neighbors, your friends but most of all yourself to our annual spring dinner!  Whether you attended a Men's Bible Study, or are new to the church this is a great time to meet other men who love to eat, who love to talk, who love to serve God, who love to gather together and build relationships with each other.

Please let Frank know if you are able to help with cooking, set up, clean up.

We will venture onto an uncharted island where kids are rescued by Jesus!  They will be anchored in the truth that Jesus carries them through every storm in life.  They'll learn to hold onto God's promises when they are lonely, they worry, they struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless.  Each day at Shipwrecked VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures.

To inquire about registering a child ages 4 and under who do not regularly attend worship at the Church of the Apostles, please contact Stacey Wiley {919-782-0550 x 22} to request registration information.
