Dear Friends,

Due to the expected impact of Hurricane Florence on our region, all church programs and activities are cancelled through at least Sunday, September 16th (including Sunday worship).

Our Rise Against Hunger program originally scheduled for 9/15 has been postponed for a date to be determined.

I hope and pray that all stay safe throughout the storm.  To those travelling, I pray that you travel safely.  To those staying in the Wilmington area, may God be with you through the storm.

Grace and Peace,

 

Emile
