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. 

Don’t forget there is homework from our worship on Sunday: Go for a walk, see something that delights you, and draw a picture of it. Take a photo of your picture and send it to Associate Pastor Joanna Hipp or Pastor Ann Jahnes, and it will be added to our “Wall of Delightful Sightings” above. Also don’t forget that next Sunday is “bring your pet to Zoom worship day”! Yea! We want to see all those birds, dogs, cats and fish when we greet each other.

Listen to our online 4-26-20 Sunday worship service,
the Third Sunday of Easter, as we explore Luke 24:13-35 with
Pastor Ann Jahnes’ message, “A Seven Mile Walk: The Hard Work of Introspection.”
See Worship Service Bulletin for 4-26-20.
