The Skinny: November 12, 2017
Headlines & Sunday Announcements
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.
Saturday, November 18 @6pm
Kids Warehouse Families, let’s gather Saturday, November 18th for an evening of fun and simply being together. We will watch the movie “Sing” and we will provide popcorn and hot cocoa.
Everyone is welcome. Eat before you come, or bring your own dinner to eat here…
Coffee Room doors open at 5:30, “Sing” (our feature presentation) will start promptly at 6:00, and runs 1 hr 45 min.
Saturday, November 18, 9-11am
Survivor Day is the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope.
On November 18, Southeast Psych will be hosting this event at their Ballantyne office – 15270 Brixham Hill Ave., Suite 150, in the Ballantyne Corporate Park
This is a free event and it is open to adults and adolescents age 13 and up.
ONE SERVICE BEGINNING DECEMBER 24
Beginning the morning of December 24, we will start gathering for one service only at 10am. There are several reasons for this, not the least of which is we just love having all of you in the room at the same time! In addition to providing a more vibrant time of worship, moving to one service will free up time before and after for other classes and spiritual development opportunities.
We are still working out the details on the plan for Kids Warehouse, so please be in prayer for the mighty KW Team and our leadership, that they would hear God’s voice in this planning period.
