Ministries

Room In The InnRoom In The Inn   Each week, during the months of December – March, our church hosts 12 of our homeless neighbors, as we offer them a comfortable place to sleep, three warm meals, and the welcoming love of Jesus Christ.  Be a part of this wonderful ministry by helping to prepare or serve meals, transporting, dining, or spending the night with our neighbors, setting up and beds, etc.

Sandwich Construction   Each month, we turn our Family Life Center into a deli, as our congregation prepares 800 sandwiches for our hungry and homeless neighbors at the Urban Ministry Center in downtown Charlotte.  With lots of hands to help, we prepare 400 pimento cheese and 400 bologna sandwiches with great proficiency; and great love.  We always need more spreaders, stackers, and stuffers — come join us.

Carolina Cross Connection logoCarolina Cross Connection   Each year, members of our youth, along with adult volunteers, converge on various rural North Carolina counties to help bring the love of Jesus Christ in real and tangible ways to many poor and disadvantaged families.  We help build wheelchair ramps, repair broken and damaged homes, clean and landscape yards, and much more.  Lives are changed in the process; from every side!

Community Blood Drives

We open our doors twice a year, to the Community Blood Center and to the Red Cross, and invite everyone in to give the gift of life.  Our gifts of blood help to save lives in the local community and around the world.

“Wonderful Wednesday” Meals

Each Wednesday evening from September – May, we have a drop-in community meal from 5:30 – 6:15 pm; followed by various options for small group studies (Bible studies, relationship enrichment classes, Pilates exercise class, etc.).  We also deliver our meals to homebound families in the community.  If you know of a family who would like a meal, or if you’d like to help deliver, we’re always looking for names.

Christ Cruiser   Hop on the bus, Gus – it’s on the way to Christ UMC!  Each Sunday morning we take our bus out into the community to pick up any folks (adults, youth, and children) who are interested in joining us for worship, Sunday School, and fellowship time.  We’re meeting new neighbors each month, and bringing lots of new folks into fellowship with one another in Jesus Christ!  Be a driver on the Christ Cruiser, or just come along for the ride.
