Share the Love this Lenten Season 

February 14 – March 30, 2024 | God calls us to humbly serve in love. During this Lenten season, we invite you to Share the Love.” Each week we will share, via email, information about our local partners and the work they do every day to love God’s people. We will share helpful resources and practical ways for you to grow a culture of servanthood within your families and groups. We also encourage you to “Share the Love” – pray, listen to where and how God is calling you to serve in this season, and then “go and do.”

Supper at the Shelter

Operation Sandwich

Each month we make over 1100 sandwiches, providing a meal to homeless or hungry men, women, and children living in our area at both Urban Ministry Center in uptown Charlotte and the Community Shelter of Union County. Donations of meat and cheese, drivers to deliver the sandwiches, and many hands are needed.

Additional Service Opportunities

Each week, the 10:10 Coffee Team serves the church by setting up and putting away the coffee stations in the Family Life Center. This is an easy way to share the love of Jesus with those who come to the service and an excellent opportunity to serve as a family.

We ask that you arrive in the FLC kitchen by 9:30 a.m. to brew the coffee and stay 10 to 15 minutes after worship to empty and rinse the urns after use.  The team rotates each week to allow for flexibility.  There is a very detailed step-by-step manual for you to follow and training is available.  You can choose to serve once a month, once a quarter, or as an on-call substitute.  However you choose to contribute to this team will be greatly appreciated!

Led by a group from WMC, Building Brothers has been active over 20 years in working with Habitat for Humanity in Johns Island, SC. Each spring, a group travels to spend a long weekend not only building homes, but also building relationships. Please contact Lloyd Briggs for more information.

This ministry offers Christ’s love and support to those unable to be active participants in the congregation. Through visits, calls, meal delivery, and prayer support, we develop nurturing friendships with homebound members. Please email Sandra McKee for more information.

Building Brothers, Fixing it for Christ, the Swansboro Build Team, Men’s Connection Project Team, and Habitat for Humanity are groups that organize to rebuild, construct, and repair in needed areas. While each group has individual projects and missions, they are currently combining efforts to lead in the construction of a home for Habitat for Humanity. Please contact Keith Long to get involved. All are welcome!

Help From Home enables individuals, families, and small groups to make and deliver sandwiches for the homeless in our community from the safety and convenience of our own homes. Kits are provided with needed supplies and instructions. Please email Aaron Smith for more information.

Sew Many Blessings, Quilts of Valor, and Golden Girls are mission-based groups that gather for a time of fellowship and sewing. Through projects like quilts for the Pastoral Care team to distribute as needed, receiving blankets, bibs, and quilts to honor the military, these groups use their skills to bless others. No quilting experience needed, just basic sewing knowledge. Please email rcmrct@yahoo.comfor more information.
