Editor Amanda Greene at the StarNews Conscience Fair this past weekend

Come meet us at The Conscience Fair!

If you’re craving an in-person chat with Wilmington Faith and Values, come out to our booth #62 at The StarNews Conscience Fair this weekend.

The Conscience Fair will be 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday Feb. 4 inside the McKeithan Center on the north campus of Cape Fear Community College, 4500 Blue Clay Road.

It’s a yearly showcase of area nonprofits displaying all of their volunteer opportunities to the community.

For Wilmington Faith and Values, our greatest volunteer need is writers. Because this is a hyperlocal nonprofit news model, we’re still recruiting many knowledgeable writers in all areas of spirituality.

Before we launch in the spring this year, my goal is to have at least 50 contributors to this site to fully represent the faith diversity of our area.

At the Conscience Fair, just look for our fabulous new name and logo.

Please stop by and say hello on Saturday!

A new name for Religion News Wilmington

Dear readers,

To get you all prepared for our professional site launch in the spring, Religion News Wilmington is unveiling its official name.

This week, we’re changing to Wilmington Faith and Values or WilmingtonFAVS.

That’s FAVS pronounced with the long ‘a’ like craves or raves.

This url will work just fine and will forward to the new url, WilmingtonFAVS.com.

And if, for some reason, there’s a techno-glitch, don’t despair. Just check back with us a little later, and we’ll have it all worked out.

The new logo will give you a taste of the slick design that our professional site will have once it’s launched in a few months. To give you an even better idea of what our site will look like, check out the redesign of Religion News Service’s web site.

Keep an eye out for the name change. So many great things are coming with the professional site design for Wilmington Faith and Values!

And keep scrolling down for the latest local and regional religion news.

Until then, thank you for reading,

Amanda Greene, Editor

What to expect in 2012 from Religion News Wilmington

Dear readers,

Thank you for reading Religion News Wilmington in 2011!

In 2011 we gave you:

  • Non-sectarian news of faith issues through the winter holiday seasons
  • 15 community contributors on many areas of faith including Catholicism, Judaism, evangelical Christianity, Humanism, world faiths and more

But hold on to your seats, folks, because 2012 is going to bring amazing things to this venture.

In 2012, get ready for:

  • A spiffy new magazine-slick site launching in the spring (our national template from Religion News LLC) with daily quotes, featured stories and bloggers, a community religion calendar, community church/faith organization listings, opportunities to advertise, fund-raising events and so much more!
  • At least 30 community contributors writing about the faith issues and intersections of public life and religion today
  • More media partnerships in radio, online and more
  • More local faith news (I hope to get to write much more frequently as the new site launches.)
  • A community speakers bureau. Need an interesting speaker about the faith news of today for your next community organization meeting? Call on Religion News Wilmington.
  • More multimedia slideshows and locally-produced videos of faith events and views in the Wilmington area

So please keep reading and *Like* us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @iwritereligion.
