Singles:

Singles Committee Survey: Thank you so much to all of the singles who participated in the survey put together by the Singles Committee.

Care & Compassion

Recent Donation: We have received a large donation of adult pullups from one of our partnerships. If you have a need for some, please contact Margo Scurry at 704.277.5605

Senior Agape Program: The Senior Agape Program of the Care and Compassion Ministry is encouraging everyone in the church to continue to show support and love to some of our area's congregates' living facilities that have experienced great isolation during these trying times. As we continue to support the Seniors at the Anita Stroud Living Center during November, we want the residents to know how thankful we are for them. Your letters and cards of encouragement really make them feel special. Please continue to participate by sending letters and cards to the church. Once you have written a letter or card, enclose it in an envelope and address it "Dear Resident" and then place that letter/ card into another envelope and address it to: The Charlotte Church: c/o the Care and Compassion Ministry at 1800 Camden Road, Suite 107-275- Charlotte, NC 28203.

HOPE:

• Our Annual Thanksgiving Canned Goods and Non-Perishable Food Drive will begin today. It will end with you dropping off your donations at our church building located at 2200 Ashley Rd in Charlotte on Saturday Nov 14th from (9AM-noon). We're asking you to be creative and ask your village to participate in this drive. The need is greater than ever this year due to the pandemic. All donations collected will be donated to Loaves and Fishes to augment and support the mobile food pantry.

Above & Beyond Students has 20 years of experience and will serve students in grades (k-5) from Ashley Park Elementary and Westerly Hills Academy by referral. We look for them to be up and running by the end of October early November timeframe. There will be employment and volunteer opportunities for members of the congregation.

• The Loaves & Fishes Mobile Food Pantry that has been operating from our parking lot on Monday's since August and has helped feed 1000 families during this challenging time.
