Directions, Parking, and Accessibility
We’re located south of Wilmington, NC, and just a few blocks from the ocean.
Go south out of Wilmington on US-421 (Carolina Beach Road) or S. College Road. At Monkey Junction (intersection of S. College Road, Piner Road, and Carolina Beach Road) continue south on Carolina Beach Road.
After you cross the Snow's Cut Bridge (the bridge onto Pleasure Island / Carolina Beach, NC), get in the right hand lane, but continue straight.
Go straight at the first traffic light (Food Lion shopping center). Continue straight at the second traffic light (Dow Rd)—go slowly, you’re almost there—and begin looking to your right. The church is just past the CVS Pharmacy on the right.
Turn right immediately after you pass the church sign and drive along the side of the church building to get to the parking lot in the rear.
If you miss the turn, you can turn right into the second driveway of the Carolina Beach Town Hall, drive around the back of Town Hall, then turn right onto 7th Street to get to the rear parking lot of the church.

Parking and Accessibility
The large parking lot behind the church is our main parking area and the nearby entrance to the fellowship hall (the glass double doors) is wheelchair accessible.
There is a small parking lot that faces North Lake Park Boulevard. This parking lot provides the easiest access to the sanctuary which is just inside the front doors and to the right. There is a wheelchair ramp that allows access up onto the sidewalk at the front of the church. This front parking lot is normally reserved for those with mobility challenges on Sundays and for special events.
There are some parking spaces along the side of the church that faces the Town Hall. Some of these allow easy access to the front entrance.
The restrooms nearest to the fellowship hall have the best wheelchair accessibility and there are spaces specifically for wheelchairs in the sanctuary.
