Open Arms is an active ministry of First Presbyterian Church devoted to sharing the warm embrace of God’s grace and love through an intentional ministry of welcome and hospitality. Our mission is to affirm, support, inspire and encourage LGBT+ brothers and sisters, their families and friends, both members and non-members alike.
We gather to celebrate and enjoy one another’s company at church and in homes…
• to build relationships
• to bear and share blessings and burdens
• to glorify God and to build up the body of Christ
• to further our hopes and dreams of inclusivity
Everyone is invited to our Potluck Supper on May 31 with guest Brooke Lambert, LGBTQIA Resource Office program coordinator at UNCW.
Open Arms is open to all. For further information about what’s up, when and where, email us or call Marion Mayes at 910.632.8697 or Carole Christian at 910.228.5580.
