Care + Support

Pastoral Care

Our pastors are available to meet with members of our congregation who are seeking guidance on a variety of personal and family issues – from simply naming the issue to helping connect you to the proper growth solution, including referral to one of our trusted professional counselors who can help. Please contact the church office at 704-948-3232 to schedule an appointment with one of our Pastors.

Care Groups

Infertility & Ice cream

Meeting on the 1st Thursday of every month, 7pm-8:30pm in the Green Room.
Are you currently desiring to grow your family, but facing closed doors? Does it feel like you’re crying out to God for answers and getting silence? Are all your friends having babies, and you’re left with empty hands? Infertility and Ice Cream was created with a desire to see the church support couples currently struggling with infertility. Whether primary, secondary, for a few months or many years, this group is a safe space for you to vent, pray, and be authentic with other couples who understand the depths of what you’re feeling.

Come with a desire to grow your family, enjoy some ice cream and fellowship with other couples in the same season, and leave with a tangible realization that you’re not as alone as the world portrays.

Group Facilitators: Dusten & Recah Harward
