The “Storm Cross”
has a Permanent Home

St Paul’s United Methodist Church on Harper Ave is about to break ground for a new Community Life Center. Sadly a tree needed to be removed to make this addition but hurricane
Florence decided that a second tree need to be removed also. After the hurricane the large tree had blown over and had to be cut off. Jerry leeman had gone to Raleigh during the visit of Florence and it took over a week for him to return. When he made it back to St Paul’s he noticed the tilted 5 foot stump of the fallen tree. This stayed in his mind over the next weeks.
Jerry has a step son, Ryan Philmon, that lives in Charlotte that wanted to come to Carolina Beach to help wherever he could. He was to bring a friend, David Do, and they wanted to volunteer to cut trees that remained issues for people in the area. As it turned out David is a chain saw tester for Husqvarna. The two showed up on Thursday evening and Friday they spent in Wilmington in the Anderson St area taking trees off sheds and off threats of safety. Saturday they worked on two houses in Carolina Beach. All this chainsaw work brought Jerry back to his days in his youth cutting trees to pay for college and brought him back to the tree at the church.
While helping to unload pumpkins for the St Paul’s Pumpkin patch again the tree was calling to him. Jerry had spent 5 week long trips to Mississippi after Katrina. He stayed at a Heritage Methodist Church in D’iberville, MS where on his second trip someone had carved a cross in the stump of fallen tree. This image came back to Jerry and he knew what he was called to do.
Carve the “Storm Cross”. This was a challenge as the stump was not round and it was at a 45 degree angle. As he started carving he also realized the stump had termites in the center. The result ended up being off center and not a “perfect” cross but to him it was the perfect symbol.
The “Storm Cross” is the perfect symbol of Pleasure Island, “we bent but we were not broken; we are not perfect but we are strong; we find ways to survive and come back even better. Rebecca Weathers Blackmore bought the cross that was put up for auction to help fund the Community Life Center and has donated it back to St Paul’s to live on and be used at events around the area, summer Boardwalk Church, Beer and Hymns, Hymns on Tap and other events in the church and around the area as a symbol of strength and commitment.


You are invited!  You are invited to walk the way of salvation, to live a life that matters, to connect with God’s purposes for you and the world.  It is a lifelong journey, and we take it one step at a time.
Yet, there are people who want to see a road map for the whole journey.  These are the ones who ask, “Where are we going?” and “How long will it take?”  They often ask, “How will we get there?” and “Do we have what it takes to make the trip?”
If you’re one of those people, “The Wesleyan Way” is for you.  Led by our pastor, Shawn Blackwelder, the study will be held for 8 weeks on Sunday mornings at 9:45am.  We will study, discuss, laugh together, and grow together.  And at St. Paul’s, “Y’all means ALL,” so everyone is welcome to come and take part, no matter who you are, what you wear, or what your background is. St. Paul’s is located at 300 Harper Avenue in Carolina Beach.  For more information, visit stpaulscb.org or call 910-458-5310.
