NASCAR Driver, Preacher, Robert Bakke Sees New Book Go Global, Proves American Dream Alive and Well

Robert Bakke declares, "Living with less is NOT the new normal!" Today he is a black belt, a jet captain, a NASCAR driver, author of Amazon's best-selling book, "Prayer at Full Throttle" and may have set a world record in the process. 
Bakke's new book (his second) is self-published, yet managed to achieve "global" television publicity in a mere 4.5 months from the date it launched…a feat that seems utterly impossible, which is why he has Guinness World Records checking into it.  The American Dream is most definitely alive and well, and Bakke is looking for interviews to spread the word.
Proving the impossible to be "possible" wasn't always the case for Bakke. But then one day in college, for no particular reason, he picked up a New Testament and starting reading. "I couldn't understand why they didn't teach this stuff in church," says Bakke, who continues, "it was the most encouraging and powerful information I had ever laid my eyes on. It completely changed what I thought about God, myself, and my capabilities. When I had finished reading it, I truly believed that with God's help I could accomplish anything. And so can anyone, especially when they are living in the greatest country on earth. America." 
According to Bakke, people need to disregard what they are hearing about living with less as being the new normal. "It's baloney," says Bakke, who adds, "This is America. We are a God-blessed nation, and my God doesn't think in terms of 'small and lack' and neither should you. It's time we put America and success back on the radar." Prayer at Full Throttle is available at www.amazon.com in paperback and e-book.

Kure Memorial Lutheran News

Encouragement for the week:  Lord, make us instruments of your peace: where there is hatred, let us sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where they is sadness, joy.  Grant that we may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.  For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  -- St. Francis of Assisi

Carolina Coast Vineyard Sunday Morning Worship At the CB Pier

High Tide Lounge 1800 Carolina Beach AVE (top floor)

 Carolina Coast Vineyard Church and Sunday Morning Worship have a unique and special story. Cathy Chester, Pastor, moved to Wilmington in 2012 from Columbus, Ohio with her husband Jon, a retired Deputy Sheriff, to plant CCVC in Wilmington, a call they felt very strongly about. Just two weeks after their arrival, they began meeting with neighbors in their home. But in less than four months after starting the church, Jon, a passionate tattooed Harley riding cop turned pastor, died unexpectedly, after a routine surgery. Cathy, a retired Special Education teacher, knew that she was to keep the church going. So, she took the lead as pastor, continuing to meet with the group. She is still amazed at how she was able to keep going, knowing without any doubt that she was stay here, even while still grieving.   Rick and Lisa Courtney had been an active part of the Vineyard Church in Virginia Beach. Rick, a Navy veteran had done some ministry while serving and after retiring, they both connected with the church and immersed themselves in ministry there.
Both Wilmington natives, they decided to return to their roots a number of years ago.  In early 2014, Rick and Lisa connected with Cathy through Facebook when searching for Vineyard churches in the area. They had an almost instant connection to each other.
When Rick and Lisa started Sunday Morning worship at the Pier, they started attending each other’s gatherings. 
It became quite evident that God had connected them to serve together in ministry in Carolina Beach. And so, Sunday Morning Worship merged with Carolina Coast Vineyard Church. 
CCVC’s mission is to provide a Christ-centered faith community on the Island that is casual, current and comfortable for everyone.  (Flip flops are encouraged) You will experience a welcoming environment with an amazing view. The gathering starts at 10am with coffee and donuts and a chance to meet new friends, and we begin at 10:30. You can contact Rick, Cathy and Lisa through the Carolina Coast Vineyard Church Facebook page, or through our website. Learn more about Carolina Coast on our website, www.carolinacoast-vc.org. Life is hard enough. Come and get refilled. Our motto is NEVER WALK ALONE. That meaning is twofold: You never walk alone when you walk with Jesus and you when you are part of a faith community that truly believes in the power of both. Come and check it out.

Love In Action

These are tough times right now for so many. And Jesus calls us to love, not only with our words, but in Truth with our actions, as 1 John 3:18 says.
At Beach Community Worship Service, we seek to do just that, by doing things a whole lot different. We seek to impact the community of Carolina Beach and beyond with the love of Christ. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you thought you had no one to call for help?
Well, we at BCWS want you to know that you now have a new place to call if you find yourself in need. If you get unexpected news and need someone to pray with you, please call us.  If you are recovering from an illness or surgery or are a caretaker for a family member and you just need a hot meal brought by or some groceries or medications, please call us. If you find yourself in an urgent situation, please call us, we’ll make every effort to help you the best we can. If you need clothes, shoes, or food, we want you to please call us. Pastors Tim Russell and Paul McCracken want you to know we all love you and we’re here for you. Galatians 6:2 tells us, “Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ”. Our services are on Thursday evenings at 6:30pm and Sunday mornings at 11:00am. We are casual, come as you are and spirit filled. Come see Love In Action! We are located at 5 North 4th Street, CB and our phone number is (910)398-8509.

Catholic Answers Launches New Podcast

For seventeen years, Catholic Answers has produced its highly popular radio program, Catholic Answers Live, which still enjoys a prime slot in the EWTN Radio lineup. Whereas Catholic Answers Live is driven by a call-in, question and answer format, Catholic Answers Focus will highlight in-depth conversations with Catholic leaders, newsmakers, and unsung heroes of the Catholic faith.
Host of both programs, Patrick Coffin, says, "Catholic Answers Focus allows us to explore subject matter through candid, unrehearsed conversations with newsmakers, leaders, and ordinary people with extraordinary stories. We're excited to extend the reach of the apostolate by going deeper -- outside the regular format of callers and commercials."
Among the first guests Catholic Answers Focus will feature is Joseph Sciambra, a former porn actor who found healing in the Catholic Church and now evangelizes in the notorious Castro district of San Francisco. The premiere episode will feature Mario Joseph, a former Muslim Imam who will share his dramatic conversion to the Catholic Church.
