“In the same way, though there are many of us, we are one body in Christ, and individually we belong to each other.” ~ ROMANS 12:5
Mondays, November 1-22, 7:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Jubilee Hall: Join us as we gather in person for education, inspiration, and discussion of the topics central to our church’s mission work: Affordable Housing, Food Insecurity, Schools and Children, and Equity and Empowerment. There will be theological reflection (why does this matter to our faith), and local experts will provide context for these issues within Charlotte. For more information, email Dr. Uiyeon Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org or Rev. Nathan Arledge at email@example.com.

Our annual holiday store concept (formerly Jubilee Store) is expanding! We have a new partner, OurBridge for Kids, and a new name, The Merry Market. But the concept stays the same! OurBridge for Kids, located on the Aldersgate campus, is an organization that meets the academic and socio-emotional needs of newly arrived and 1st generation American children and their families. We will partner with OurBridge to provide an empowering, joy filled holiday shopping experience for more than 150 families. Your donations are critical to the success of the store so we have set up a convenient Amazon Wishlist to guide you. Click the button below to shop. Thank you for supporting this favorite holiday tradition!
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we are collecting gift cards to provide food for 100 families from our school partners. Families appreciate being able to choose between prepared meals or groceries/ingredients, so we are asking for donations of $50 Harris Teeter gift cards. Drop cards in the secure boxes in the Parish Life Building lobby by November 19.
After a year off, Room In the Inn is returning to churches around our city! Because we do not have access to our former space in the Youth Building, we will partner with our across-the-alley neighbor Myers Park Presbyterian to host Wednesday nights in their Outreach Center. We still plan to host 12 guests and provide a meal, a safe place to gather and sleep, showers, and fellowship. There are several different ways to get involved in this ministry.

As the colder months approach, Missions will be collecting gently used or new clothing. We are in need of both women’s and men’s jackets, coats, pants, sweaters, and sweatshirts. These items can be in any size or colors! Please drop off the items in the Parish Life lobby in the wooden bin labeled “Winter Clothing Drive”
