    They do not attend a church. However, Peletier First Missionary Baptist Church is located across the highway from the entrance into their neighborhood. I can contact the church and see if arrangements can be made.

    Does this couple attend a church where items can be bought and sent to replace items lost in their home?

    They were dispatched around 3am. So sad. But glad everyone is ok. Items can be replaced but I know it is sickening to know you work so hard and it all go up in flames in minutes. This family worked out of their shed. This was their income. Please keep them in thoughts and prayers. Neighboring homes received damage as well. Thank you to all the F.D.'s for responding...Western Carteret, Stella, Swansboro, Broad Creek and Emerald Isle
