The North Carolina church staff members have been planning our all NC service coming up Sunday, May 31 at 10am. To help you prepare we wanted to let you know the service will be about 1.5 hours in length. We realize this is longer than our typical virtual services and family groups may need to make adjustments to their gatherings. It should be an exciting time of worship as we "gather" with our sister churches around the state. We encourage you to post this on social media and invite your family and friends to join us!

  • FOR THE WOMEN FAMILY GROUP LEADERS: The staff women have been praying for each member in your family groups and it's been great. We have asked God to support you as you juggle work, home schooling, our "new normal", managing your finances, protecting your health, caring for your families, and engaging with your family groups. We will continue to "gather" this month and pray for the specific groups below. Family group leaders, if you're able to join us, we'd love it (ask Lavonia or Jennifer for the details); but if not, don't worry, we've got you covered!
