Ministry Spotlight - Early Bread Street Ministry
The purpose of Early Bread Street Ministry is to reach out to those who are currently homeless and in need of a helping hand. We provide a meal, snacks, water, clothes, toiletries and a variety of other miscellaneous items. We get to know them, hear their stories, find out if there is a way we can help, spend time praying, and share the Gospel.
If you are interested, there are a variety of ways you can help us.

3) Pray for us
Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:4-5
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that ask you a reason for the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.1 Peter 3:15
No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:44
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort which we ourselves are comforted of God. 2 Corinthians. 1:3-4
Tithes and Offerings
Please remember the importance of continuing your regular giving during this time.
If you are attending service in person, there is an offering box in the back of the sanctuary.
To send a check, the mailing address for the church is P.O. Box 16250, Wilmington, NC 28408.
A number of church members have found it more convenient to utilize their bank’s on-line banking for their giving.
