Summer Sermon Series at St. Paul’s

Gather with the people of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church on Sundays during the month of July as we explore the intersections of the songs of reggae legend Bob Marley with the messages of the Bible.  Each week, a different Bob Marley song will be performed by the musicians of St. Paul’s, including our new 8:30 Music Leader, Brennan Simmons, our Boardwalk Ukulele Band, and local favorite Maggie Stone.  The schedule will be:
• July 2nd        “One Love”
• July 9th        “Redemption Song”
• July 16th    “No Woman, No Cry”
• July 23rd    “Could You Be Loved”
• July 30th    “Three Little Birds (Don’t Worry)”
Our casual service starts at 8:30am, and our traditional service is at 11am (this service is traditional in structure, but the dress code is still casual – we’re a beach church, after all).  Child care is provided for both services, as well as for Christian Education in between.  For more information, call the church office at 458-5310 or visit our website at www.stpaulscb.org

Kure Beach Community Beach Worship Began May 31

We invite you to come and join us for “Worship on the Beach” every Wednesday evening beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the beach access at Avenue F in Kure Beach.  This summer Beach Worship will begin on Wednesday, May 31, and will continue through the end of September. For the last 5 years, Kure Memorial Lutheran Church has been offering a midweek worship service on the beach throughout the summer beginning the Wednesday after Memorial Day.  We gather for songs of praise, prayer, scripture reading, a short meditation or discussion about the reading, Holy Communion, and conversation.  The service itself only lasts 25-30 minutes.  We try to make it extra meaningful by using sand, water and seashells for images of forgiveness and God’s care, as well as illustrations of how God loves us and uses us even though we may not be perfect.
Bring your beach chair or blanket and join us for a brief, meaningful service in the most beautiful “sanctuary” around!  It’s a great place to bring your children and their beach toys.  If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Dan Keck, Pastor of Kure Memorial Lutheran Church, at 910-458-5266.

When was the last time that you got up and “went to church”? For some of you, it was last week. For others, you can’t even remember. Sunday church services bring friends together and offer an opportunity to create new friendships. That hour at church provides a time for those who follow Jesus (or are trying to figure Him out) to worship, pray, learn about how to live life with Jesus at the center and to give back by giving, serving and sharing.
Carolina Coast Vineyard Church (CCVC) is not your ordinary church. We are a group of imperfect people who love Jesus and others and think that it is important to be ourselves as we grow in our faith. Contemporary, creative, casual, relevant.
We offer a number of small groups through the week and seek out ways to help our surrounding community.
Get yourself up out of bed this Sunday and join us.
