Melissa Vestal

Melissa has a passion for growing with women to love Christ in a more loving and practical way, as well as studying apologetics and learning how to defend the faith. When not spending time with friends and fellow believers, Melissa loves to swim, sew, paint, go boating (not as often as she’d like), crochet, play the cello, and walk the loop because it’s good for her. She and husband Linus love trying new restaurants and experiencing all Wilmington has to offer.

Anamarie Pattison

Anamarie grew up in NOVA (Northern Virginia), where she was a member of the  local PCA church for more than twenty-five years.  By God’s grace she grew up in a Christian home and came to saving faith in Christ at an early age.  Since childhood she has been learning to rejoice in her sufferings, knowing that God sovereignly sanctifies His children through the God-ordained trials of this life.  Romans 5:3-5 has been particularly encouraging to her.  In these verses we are reminded that followers of Christ can “rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

Anamarie attended Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, Georgia where she met, and later married her husband, Tim.  She and Tim have five children and have been living in Wilmington for over ten years.  It has been an honor and our pleasure to have been a part of Christ the King since its inception. She enjoys reading on several topics, baking (especially when it turns out well), making her own tinctures, foraging for nutrition sake, going to the beach and traveling with the family.  Tim serves as an elder and she works with the Wednesday morning women’s Bible study.  We enjoy practicing hospitality, especially over a good meal.  We hope to get to know you better!
