All God's Children


At Little Chapel, we welcome children of all ages and stages of life to join us in worship. We have children's bulletins for age 3+ and 7+ to go along with the Word of the day.

Our 8:30am ARISE service is a shorter, more casual service in which wiggly children are welcome to roam around!

Our 10:30am Traditional service has a children's moment welcoming young ones to the first pew for a story-time before the Scripture lessons.

If parents choose to utilize our nursery, we have professional childcare available at 8:30am and 10:30am for infants through first grade.

Congregational Care

Congregational Care at Little Chapel on the Boardwalk, guided by our Deacon Jeannie Willets, is dedicated to supporting members through various life challenges. Understanding the transformative power of care in discipleship, the church offers personalized support for those dealing with loss, COVID-related struggles, addiction, trauma, mental health issues, or spiritual growth. This section includes options for directed support like sending a card, meal, completing an errand, or visiting. We encourage members to fill out a Care form. We emphasize walking alongside each individual to find hope, help, and healing in Jesus, reinforcing a message of empathy, support, and community connection.

At Little Chapel on the Boardwalk, we are deeply committed to supporting you through prayer. Whether it's for yourself or someone you know, our team is honored to bring your requests before God. We regularly dedicate time to pray for each request we receive, ensuring that your concerns are heard and lifted up in faith. Let us join you in seeking comfort, guidance, and strength through prayer.

Matthew House

Matthew House, a charming two-story beach house on our church grounds, is just a block away from the ocean. It offers cozy accommodations for up to 16 people, ideally suited for church and college groups visiting the Cape Fear region for mission activities. This welcoming house is designed to be a comfortable retreat for those engaged in meaningful mission work in the area.


Eden Village

We have made service our habit. We built a house called Safe Harbor in Eden Village so that a man in Wilmington who didn't have a place to lay his head found shelter he could call home.
