Christmas Eve Offering
Our local School Partnerships and global partner Zoe Empowers are both vital ministries of our church. Hundreds of vulnerable children and under-resourced families are reached through your generous donations, and our Christmas Eve offering will go directly to these partners to ensure their work continues to thrive. Your faithful offering will support generational transformation for our neighbors locally and globally. We challenge you to give generously by determining what you spent on gifts for your family and giving the equivalent amount on Christmas Eve.
To make your gift, click here and select Holy Days from the Fund drop-down menu on the gift form or note Holy Days Offering on your check mailed to our business office at 1501 Queens Road, Charlotte, NC 28207.

And His Name Shall Be Call-ed
In Dr. Howell’s Advent series, we’ll explore and sing together in worship Isaiah’s prophecy of the fabulous name of the one Israel longed for, the one whose coming we celebrate and still long for: God with us, Emmanuel, who’ll be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. If you don’t already receive Dr. Howell’s biweekly emails, click here to sign up. And be part of our four worship services, one on each pair of these names, in person or online!
