Congregational Care

Life can present many ups and downs. As a church family, we want to walk beside you and support you on your journey. We believe in Jesus’ command to love one another, and we know that offering care is essential in sharing that love. If you are seeking more information, email Rev. Bill Roth, Pastor of Congregational Care, at For health-related questions, contact Parish Nurse Lauren Smith at

As a Church, we affirm that the Gospel is a message of death and resurrection. We come together as a community of faith to celebrate, honor and remember those who have passed from life to life eternal. We come together in grief, acknowledging our human loss and ask that God grant us grace, comfort, and hope.

Currently, in response to COVID-19, we are doing our best to faithfully honor the lives of loved ones while also protecting those who gather to celebrate their life and mourn together. If you need to speak with the pastor on call or find out more about making arrangements, call 704-376-8584. Click here to stream memorial services.

Mindfulness Mondays in May

May is Mental Health Awareness Month – Join Us for Mindfulness Mondays in May, 11-11:30, Francis Chapel: On Mondays in May we offer you an opportunity to learn or to renew your practice of mindfulness meditation in a small group setting on the Labyrinth. Mindfulness meditation is simply being aware and accepting in the present moment of your breath, emotions, physical sensations and thoughts. This is known, over time, to improve mood, and the experience of physical and mental health conditions. Led by the Congregational Care team, we welcome you to reach out with your questions to Chris Mull at
