Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church: Come be renewed

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.
Sunday morning services at 8:30 and 11 am.
WEDNESDAY AT THE WELL  will resume in September after Labor Day.  For the first 7 weeks we will share in a study by Adam Hamilton called “Confronting the Controversies,” which looks at some of the toughest issues we deal with from a biblical perspective.  In a time that everyone seems so divided, we in the church can show a better way – how Christians can disagree and yet still remain faithful to our call to love our neighbor as ourselves.  It’s not required reading, but if you’d like to read the book that goes along with the study, you can order a copy www.cokesbury.com/product/9780687346004/confronting-the-controversies-participants
NEW ATTRACTIONS BOOKS ARE HERE! The new Attractions Guide containing hundreds of coupons for local restaurants and businesses is now available.  All profits benefit our youth group.  Pick up your copy today, or come into the office during the week to get yours.  Each book is $25.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Introduces After School Choir Program

WILMINGTON – St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is pleased to announce an after school choir program for boys and girls directed by Ronnie Wise. Those who are  interested in learning more can attend an Open House on either Monday, September 12 from 6-7 p.m. or Saturday, September 17 from 10-11 a.m. at St. Paul’s  Episcopal Church located at 16 N 16th Street in Wilmington. To RSVP for the Open House, please visit www.spechurch.com/music and click on the St. Paul’s  Choir School tab.
From its founding in 1858, St. Paul’s has had a strong impact with the children in the community, more specifically, children who sing. This is a unique after-school program, and the only choir school of its kind in the city or the diocese, offering children who are interested in singing the opportunity to earn a stipend for their accomplishments.
The choir school is for boys age nine through voice change, and girls age nine through eighth grade. Participants will experience performance opportunities, receive music lessons on an instrument of their choir through the UNCW Community Music Academy, participate in professional voice lessons, and earn a stipend for singing based on experience and ability, all at little to no cost to parents.
The St. Paul’s Choir School is not affiliated with the Wilmington Boys Choir (WBC), or Girls’ Choir of Wilmington, however, boys are expected to participate in the WBC for admittance into the Choir School. Although the Choir School is open to the community, it is solely a resident choir of St. Paul’s, and will perform once each month as part of the church service.
Rehearsals for Choir School will be as follows: Girls: Mondays, 5:15 – 6:15 PM, every 1st and 3rd Wednesday from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.
Boys: Tuesday, 5:15 – 6:00 PM, every 2nd and 4th Wednesday from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.
Ronnie Wise is the Music Director for St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and the Wilmington Boys Choir. Prior to moving to Wilmington, he served as Director of Worship and the Arts and Principal Organist at Boone United Methodist Church in Boone, NC. He studied at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ and the Juilliard School in NYC.

Beach Community Church: Biker Rally at the Beach Community Church 9/17
5 North 4th Street • Carolina Beach, NC

Beach Community Church will be hosting a Biker Rally on September 17th. A biker rally at a church? Jesus was asked Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners? And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick  (Luke 5:30-31). We at BCC are rapidly getting to be  known as "The Biker Church."  So, what is a biker church? We are a body of believers who love God, and want to see others come to know the love God has for them. It just so happens a good many of us also ride motorcycles. We openly welcome "bikers" and anyone else who might not feel comfortable in a "suit and tie church." The rally will most likely be an all day event. There will be free food, bike blessings, fun, fellowship, biker booths, and even a wedding! We invite you to attend this church hosted rally, whether you ride on  two or four wheels (or 3).
