KURE BEACH, NC - Words of Encouragement:   “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”  Psalm 147:3.
Have you noticed flocks of pink flamingos appearing randomly in your neighbors’ yards?

You can “flock” a friend, by making a contribution toward the mission trip.  The Mission Team is also sponsoring a pancake breakfast at Highway 55 on Carolina Beach Road between 8 and 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 30.  Cost is $6.00 per person.  Tickets will be available at the door.  Contact Pastor Dan for more information or to reserve your flock.

Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church

Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church is a place where people of all races, backgrounds and walks of life come together to worship and grow in their relationship with God. At Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church you’ll find a unique experience of church. Come as you are for worship, prayer, and Bible study.
The church is not the building, it’s the people.  During the month of May we’ll talk about some of the qualities that make us who we are, beginning with a vision for where we believe God is leading us in our missions and ministries.
 Sunday sermon
May 1st
Scripture: Acts 16:9-15
Sermon: “Spirit-led Vision”
Theme: Paul is prevented by the Spirit from going where he wanted to go, but was led to Macedonia, where a vital ministry was started.  We have also sought the Spirit’s direction in determining where the ministries of St. Paul’s should be going.
