Wilmington church uses Shrimpfest to raise awareness

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmingtonians went to Cape Fear Presbyterian Church this weekend with a big appetite for seafood’s smaller delights. It was the church’s 6th annual Cape Fear Shrimpfest featuring what Reverend Jonathan Watson says is one the community’s better bites.

“Every church will say that they have the best cooks. I am pretty partial,” said Watson. “I think we have some pretty good cooks here at Cape Fear Presbyterian. The shrimp they prepare are just fantastic.”

This year, the church teamed up with The Center of Redemption. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Wilmington ministry to help stop human trafficking and to provide a safe place for victims of human trafficking.

Cape Fear Presbyterian has been active in the Wilmington community for nearly 70 years. Watson says the church wants to raise awareness, but also wants to give the community a good time.

“Our goal was always really simple, which is to be hospitable; to extend hospitality and to invite people to have a good time. And to have some good shrimp.”
