Count Me In!

The theme for our 2017-2018 Stewardship program, Count Me In!, focuses on the many ways our congregation members support our mission To Love, To Invite and To Serve. It also provides an open invitation for members to consider new areas in which to use their God-given talents. With that in mind: What is your Christ-centered passion? In which areas would you like to enhance our congregation’s efforts? Where can you take an additional step over and above your current level of personal commitment to make a difference in and to strengthen our worshiping community? We all have busy schedules, whether it be from work, from activities with our family, children, grandchildren, from appointments,

Where is God when bad things happen?

Where is God when bad things happen?

The document was an invitation to debate the issues raised in the theses. Did he really post them on October 31? It's hard to know for sure. It wasn't announced. He would have been just another person posting another notice on the church door. If it did happen on the 31st, it wasn't a random date. The following day was All Souls D

Ten Days of Prayer

Is it not like a pastor to ask...do you pray? How do you pray? What do you pray for? It might sound a bit off, but many people believe they just do not have time to pray. Others think no one is listening. Still others are embarrassed to admit - or God forbid...be seen praying! So when I invite you into the TEN DAYS OF PRAYER I hope you might consider accepting. InterFaith Leaders for Neighborhood Ministries and I are hoping you could join us in prayer from September 8 through September 17 to focus the power of prayer on bringing about a safer, more peaceful city of Wilmington and the surrounding communities. Could you imagine what it would be like for our community if we, as a group prayed,
