We are “the church on the way to the ferry” in the beautiful coastal town of Southport, North Carolina. Our congregation draws from communities of Southport, Oak Island, Boiling Spring Lakes, St. James, Bolivia, and more. We joyfully strive for inspirational worship, theological study and spiritual exploration, social engagement, and vital multigenerational life. All are welcome here!
Florence has been a strong threatening force upon us all. We have experienced the fragility of our lives and property. I pray for your well-being. If you have evacuated and are not yet home, please make the journey with care. Travel is precarious. Be patient, for it can also be long.
For those who are home, and who stayed home, there is much clean-up work to do. Please watch yourself, don’t overdo.
We will have an informal worship service on Sunday morning at 11:00. The church is in good shape, with no structural damage, and the parking lot is fine. Watch for debris. We gather as a community of faith in prayer. We will have opportunity to express our experiences and feelings. We will also share the needs of our members, friends, and community, and organize ourselves to respond to those needs. If it is safe for you to come, I look forward to seeing you.
You are also invited to bring supplies that can be helpful for distribution (such as water, non-perishable foods, pet food, diapers). We will have a suggested list on Sunday.
Please contact me if you have any concerns.
Peace to you and all God’s children,
Let love be genuine… Romans 12:9
is to be an accepting spiritual home for all,
actively glorifying God, sharing in the love of Jesus Christ
and witnessing to the power of the Holy Spirit.
Celebrating a God whose love never fails
Embracing and supporting all people at any stage of life,
Nurturing growth in each unique faith journey
Serving others with humility, compassion and justice
as disciples of Jesus Christ, led by the Spirit, we are committed to:
Deepening our relationship with God and each other
Discerning God’s will for our church
Caring for our neighbor and one another
Cherishing differences knowing we are united in faith
Acting as faithful stewards of God’s abundance.
All are welcome here!
As we prepare for building a new Ministry Center, we are in a process called
“Sharing the Journey: Deeper, Broader, Stronger.”
As the building grows, our ministry grows:
Deeper in faith, Broader in service to others, Stronger in unity.
We look back in gratitude and forward with hope
While keeping our feet on the path.
We want everyone to be part of this historic journey.
