Sunday Morning Worship at CB pier

Rick Courtney and his wife, Lisa, are sharing love through worship, prayer and scripture with a Sunday morning worship service at High Tides on the North End Pier, Carolina Beach.
While Courtney was in the navy, he did ministry work. After retiring from the navy, he and his wife stayed in Virginia for a while, but, decided to move back to the area.
He then chose to share his ministry with others and he always felt Carolina Beach had this special charm about it. His mission is to share scriptures while singing His praises with an open invitation to all who want to share the same.
The gathering starts at 10 a.m., for fellowship, coffee/water and donuts are provided. Breakfast can be ordered from the grill, if you would like something more. They offer positive music and food for thought from the bible, and with the music, songs and worship you have the best view.
He also has a Facebook page, where he offers words of encouragement each day; to get your day started on a positive note or pick you up if you are down; something to get you through or to get you thinking. You can contact him through the page also. Follow him at
Courtney feels that life is hard enough, so church should refill that spirit and make you smile. So, stop in at High Tides on Sunday morning at 10 a.m. to get a smile and spirit through the message received. He is also working on a worship-driven album.
Yes, if his name sounds familiar, it is because he is a member of the band Beachbilly Brothers that plays at different venues in the area.
