The Skinny: October 29, 2017
Headlines & Sunday Announcements
Friday, November 03 / 7:00PM
In our loss and suffering, we scramble for understanding, stability, and orientation, yet what we most need is witness. We need presence, because we wrestle better together. We need to know what to do with the fragments left in our hands: fragments of our hopes, our anger, and our confusion. Cries of the Heart will be a time to grieve and to hold space for each other, rather than pursuing quick fixes. We will gather to plant our tears and to re-engage belief in a good Father through prayer, song, and teaching. There will be childcare available for infants through 5th grade. This is open to anyone in the Warehouse community, and anyone outside of our walls who is dealing with grief and loss.
Friday, November 10 @7:30pm / The Movement Center
Come out for an evening focused on prayer and corporate worship with our friends, neighbors, and allies in West Charlotte. As one Church, we will respond to Jesus through listening, praying, and fellowship. The night will be hosted inside the Movement Center in the lower level at the Missions Place [2225 Freedom Drive]. Parking is available both in the top lot and in the gravel lot below. No childcare available for this event, though kids are encouraged to come!
Tuesday, November 14 @ 7pm
Food is the backbone of culture and a basic human need, yet many Charlotte residents have no access to fresh, nutritious food, and many more have no idea where or how their food was grown. What would it take for the “food deserts” in Charlotte to disappear? What if neighborhoods with high-risk of food insecurity not only had greater access to fresh food but also became hubs for sustainable, collaborative, joyful food production? How might a transformed food culture impact the thriving of these neighborhoods as a whole? Come interact with an expert panel of master gardeners, community activists, social entrepreneurs, and non-profit leaders as we collaborate together for food justice and thriving neighborhoods.
