The care we have for one another flows outward into the community through as many and diverse ways as we have people.
For two weeks in November, we host 12 homeless women from the Salvation Army Center of Hope. We work with Habitat of Charlotte to make critical home repairs (see photo to the left), some of our members deliver Friendship Trays, and others volunteer at Urban Ministry.
Our mens’ groups serve meals at the Charlotte Rescue Mission. We collect and distribute furniture, housewares and such to families transitioning out of homelessness and into a place of their own.
We’ve adopted and supported families through Love INC. Attic sales and silent auctions are events which raise money for youth mission trips, and we work with the residents of Enderly Park through the Hyaets Mission.
Members support and walk in the CROP Walk and the Susan B. Komen Walk.
We’re big into the Loaves and Fishes canned food drive, collecting hats, gloves and scarves for children under the church Christmas Tree, and we collect money for our Deacon’s Fund, which aids the needy in our community by helping with medicines, utility bills, rent, a doctor visit and in countless other ways.
In addition to members’ time and energy, through our church budget our benevolent giving supports a variety of community ministries including:
- Loaves and Fishes
- Friendship Trays
- Hospice of Charlotte
- Alexander Children’s Center
- Siegel Ave. Pre-school
- Charlotte Rescue Mission
- Charlotte Urban Ministry
- Siegel Ave. Teen Center
- Salvation Army Center of Hope
- Crisis Assistance Ministry
- Dove’s Nest
- Love INC.
- Samaritan House
- Habitat Critical Home Repair
We are always seeking new ways to extend the love of Christ out into the community, and God has worked mightily in our membership to bring forth creative ideas for ministry and mission.
