Matthews Ministry Gift Drive

ORCA and the Old Dominion Dames (ODD) are asking the Ocean Ridge Community to support the Matthew’s Ministry Christmas Gift Drive for Brunswick County school children during November. Matthew’s Ministry also sponsors the food filled backpacks at the beginning of the school year. Matthew’s Ministry would “like to send a book home with the elementary age children that we serve prior to their Christmas break.  We are looking for new books suitable for a child in kindergarten through 5th grade. If you would rather write a check, make it out to Matthew’s Ministry and write Christmas in the Memo line.

Rose House

545 Hickman Road

Calabash, NC 29467


November 12, 2022 was the long anticipated grand opening of Rose House, CRCI’s (Christian Recovery Centers, Inc.) first addiction recovery center for women in Brunswick County. To say it was “worth the wait”, is an understatement. The edifice exudes the feeling of hope and happiness with its oversized wrap around porch, custom porch swings and benches and a “rose” stained glass window. After several brief comments, there was a “ribbon cutting”, followed by rousing applause from the hundreds in attendance. Ron Sorice, a board member of ORCA as well as CRCI, was in attendance with many others who made this important project a reality.
