Campus: North Charlotte

We have been called by God to love others by serving those who are in our community. Join us for MAXlife Mission Week 2014, a three day event where students come together to share the love of Jesus with the Charlotte community through acts of service. Each day, teams of students will take part in two different service projects while learning about God's call to walk in the direction of love and service that He modeled for us.

This event will be closed out with a dinner Thursday night for the students involved and their families. We will take a look back at the week and share what we have experienced and learned. This will be one of the best experiences of your summer. You don't want to miss it!

Who: All middle school students (rising 7th-9th grade) 

What: MAXlife Mission Week 2014

When: Tuesday, July 22 - Thursday, July 24
            Each day from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
            Thursday Night Dinner - 6:30 - 8 p.m.

Where: We will meet each morning at the church in the Atrium.

Cost: $25 (inlcudes t-shirt, lunch on Wednesday, and dinner on Thursday night)

Students are encouraged to eat breakfast before they arrive.
For lunch, bring money on Tuesday, pizza will be provided on Wednesday, and students will bring a bag lunch on Thursday.
(Dinner for the students and their parents is covered in the cost. Additional family members are welcome to attend the dinner at an additional cost of $3 per person.)

Parents, we need your help chaperoning and driving for this event. This entails driving students to their project sites, staying to help and driving them back to the church. You can volunteer for morning sessions (9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.), afternoon sessions (1:30 - 5:00 p.m.), or all day (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).

Designed for Pre-K aged children and older, each Storytime is led by a dynamic storyteller who brings faith-based children's books to life. You will also get to help your child make a craft that allows you to bring the lesson home with you. Finished with a snack time, the Children's Storytime is the perfect way to spend a Tuesday morning.

Invite your friends to join in on the fun! No registration required. And don't forget to stop by The Grounds for a cup of coffee or a sweet snack!

Nursing Home Ministry Serve Day

There is a clear command in the Bible to care for the widow and the orphan, and to serve the least and the lost. Serving at a nursing home is a wonderful way to be able to do this, and a fantastic opportunity for families to serve together.

We have found a wonderful home, Olde Knox Commons, for Meck to partner with. And they are so excited for us to come out and spend time serving the residents there. And we are told that spending time with us, particularly children, bring so much joy to their lives.

Join us on Saturday, September 6 from 9:15 - 10:30 a.m. helping to serve at this home and to begin building amazing relationships with both the residents and other people from Meck!

The address for Olde Knox Commons is:

13825 Hunton Lane
