MPUMC Welcomes Father Gregory Boyle of Homeboy Industries

08/05/2019 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Don’t miss this MPUMC event featuring Father Gregory Boyle, the founder of the largest and most successful gang intervention rehab, and re-entry progr am in the world, whom we will be bringing to Charlotte. Because we expect a crowd, we will be holding this event at First United Methodist Church on Monday, August 5 at 6:30 p.m. 

This is a free event, no tickets required. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and seating is limited.

Free event parking is available in the First UMC garage accessed from W. 9th St. between N. Tryon St. and N. Church St. Park in any unreserved space. From the garage, take the Sanctuary elevator to Level S for direct access to the venue.

The church is located at the corner of Eighth and Tryon, 3 blocks from the Seventh Street and Ninth Street Stations on the LYNX Blue Line.
