Just for Women

The Carolyn Phillips Mission Group would like to invite all the women in the church (and surrounding area) to a special event on Tuesday, June 6th at 12 noon at Yarborough’s Restaurant.

Cecilia Beck, CBF missionary in Shelby, will be updating us on her work and sharing a special project with us. Working with the youth in her distressed neighborhood, she has started a jewelry business to benefit the youth.

Join us for lunch, if possible, and hear what Cecelia is doing and buy some jewelry. Seating is limited for lunch (we will order off the menu), so please call Kay Albright at 248-4130 no later than June 2 to make a reservation. No reservation needed to come buy jewelry (come about 1:00).

TDCWL – Thank You

A message from Judy Lecroy (Co-Director of TDCWL):

I wish I had the vocabulary to sufficiently thank you for all your hard work today and preparation days for today. You are a special group of people—caring about the disadvantaged more than your own comfort and enjoyment. You sacrificed to help many. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I love working with you! Thank you again.

May God richly bless you!

The Response: A Call to Prayer

September 26, 2015
10:00 a.m./ 4:00 p.m.
Charlotte Convention Center
501 S College Street
North Carolina

America’s issues are not primarily financial, political or moral.  Neither does America’s hope lie in one leader or institution.  Our hope is found in the One who desires for us to turn to Him with our hearts.  This is our response — to call on Jesus on behalf of America, that He might hear our cry and heal our land.

We will respond….with prayer, with fasting, with repentance.

We want to invite North Carolinia and the nation to a time of worship, prayer, fasting and repentance on September 26th at the Charlotte Convention Center.  Many local pastors and leaders including Governor Pat McCory will be joining us.  This is the time for Christians to come together to call upon Jesus to guide us through unprecedented struggles, and thank Him for the blessings of freedom we so richly enjoy.

Seating is limited.  Reserve your spot for this FREE event at TheResponseNC.com
