divorcecare.org. Questions? Call the church and leave a message. 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.

St. Paul’s Guest Artist Series Presents Concert Organist Christopher Houlihan
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  February 25, 2017 - WILMINGTON –  St. Paul’s Guest Artist is pleased to present concert organist Christopher Houlihan in concert on Friday, March 10th at 7:30 p.m. (hospitality reception following concert), in the exquisite acoustics of St. Paul’s Episcopal’s sanctuary located at 16th and Market Street in Wilmington.  This is the fourth of five concerts in the 2016-17 St. Paul’s Guest Artist Series.
The young American musician Christopher Houlihan is widely acknowledged as one of the brightest stars in the new generation of organists, praised by the media as “gifted” (New York Times), “dazzling” (Wall Street Journal), and “eloquent” (Los Angeles Times). Houlihan has established an international reputation for his artistry with performances in celebrated venues in major cities across North America and Europe, as well as at numerous conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society.
Highlights from the 2015-2016 season included debuts at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., presented by the National Symphony Orchestra, and at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, presented by the Philadelphia Orchestra. In 2014, Houlihan made his Disney Hall debut, performing with principal brass of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, for which the Los Angeles Times raved, "Houlihan is the next big organ talent." Also in 2014, Houlihan performed in a prime-time slot of WQXR's All-Day Bach Organ Marathon in New York City. Spanning 18 hours, the marathon was webcast live and seen by thousands.
Houlihan studied with Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacobs at The Juilliard School, where he earned a master's degree, with John Rose at Trinity College (Hartford), and Jean-Baptiste Robin at the French National Regional Conservatory in Versailles. In 2015 he was selected for The Diapason's "20 Under 30", a distinguished list of leaders in the organ world under the age of 30. Christopher Houlihan is Director of Music and Organist at The Church of the Holy Apostles in Manhattan and Artist-in-Residence at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.

Get RESTORED at St. Paul’s During Lent

Casual Worship:
Sundays at 8:30am
Traditional Worship: Sundays at 11am
Sunday School &
 Christian Education: Sundays at 9:45am
ASH WEDNESDAY Service: March 1st at 7pm
Having heard so many stories over the years, here is what I can tell you: people are a mess.  Don’t take that the wrong way.  It’s true of me, too.  It’s not that everyone’s life is falling apart all the time; it’s simply that we all have some mess in our lives.  –Rev. Tom Berlin. During the season of Lent this year, Pastor Shawn Blackwelder will be leading a 6-week study of Tom Berlin’s Restored: Finding Redemption in Our Mess.  Sometimes our lives are in such disarray we can’t envision a way through to redemption. But when we look at the mess through the eyes of Christ, we not only find redemption, we can clearly see spiritual restoration. When we reflect and meditate through our own brokenness, we find that it is only when we focus on the cross as a place to surrender control that we can leave our mess and find true redemption.  The study will be on Wednesday nights at 7, beginning March 8th.  If you would like to participate, please let us know contacting the church office at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 458-5310.
Before that, though, we will begin the Lenten season with a service of repentance featuring prayers and hymns, scripture and sermons, along with the traditional imposition of ashes.  It will be held in our sanctuary on March 1st at 7pm.
