We will make you feel like your first time through our doors is like being at home.  Flip flops, shorts, or traditional Sunday attire, we would like to have you join us just as you are.  We will even help you brush the sand off and find a spot for your fishing pole at the door.
St. Paul’s is also the home of the famous Agape Inn Puppet Ministry.  The Agape Inn has been continually  operating for over 30 years.  This Christian entertainment and education ministry is located on the Boardwalk in  Carolina Beach.

Sunday Services:
April 17th
Scripture: Amos 7:10-15
Sermon: “Practicing Resurrection in Work”
Theme: Many view work through the lens of “job” or “career.” Christ followers view it as “vocation” or “calling.”  How do we find our purpose in work or service?
April 24th
Scripture: Romans 8:18-25
Sermon: “Practicing Resurrection in the World”
Theme: Paul says that “the whole creation has been groaning” for the new life that Christ brings.  Practicing resurrection means finding new ways of living that reflect God’s will for all creation.
