Go Local:  WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ENGAGE YOUR NEIGHBORS?

FIND OUT FROM YOUR CARMEL FAMILY!

 

Carmel's Local Outreach ministry partners and collaborates with organizations and churches throughout the city in order to care for the hidden and forgotten in our community.

We are FOR Empowerment - We desire to see the marginalized move from a cycle of dependence to a place of holistic shalom. Examples of ministry include Charlotte Rescue Mission and East Charlotte Partnerships and investment.

We are FOR Mercy (Care) - We desire to love and serve the vulnerable in order to address unmet needs, Examples include advocating and caring for preborn, low income older adults and those with special needs.

We are FOR Collaborations - We collaborate with organizations in the community who work to enhance the care and support of the vulnerable and marginalized in our community. Examples include Beds for Kids and Joni & Friends.

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself."   Matthew 22:37-39

"YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND. THIS IS THE GREAT AND FIRST COMMANDMENT. AND A SECOND IS LIKE IT: YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." - JESUS

 

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR:

To be a disciple of Jesus requires a personal commitment to both the Great Commandments and Great Commission, which call all Christians to love their neighbors and make disciples.

SERVE YOUR NEIGHBOR:

Just as Jesus did not come to be served, but to serve, Carmel is called to serve our neighbors.

HOW CAN I LOVE & SERVE MY NEIGHBORS?

There are a variety of practical ways for you to love and serve your neighbors. Below is a list that includes websites, resources, articles and books that can help equip you in your efforts to connect with your neighbors.

Midweek Serve: Once a month this Fall (September 25, October 23, November 20), all ages* will gather for an interactive, on-campus experience that benefits an area of our outreach (6:15 - 7:30pm/Worship Center & Gathering Space). This fall's focus is vulnerable children in our city. Together we will work to meet a tangible need, hear stories of how God is at work in our city and globally, pray, connect, and fellowship as all generations together!

Outreach Training: At various times throughout the year, our team offers specialized training on serving in your community. We believe it is important to be prepared as we go, and to ensure we do not harm as we help.  To set up a presentation or training for your Small Group, email 

Meet Your Neighbors: Explore ongoing mission opportunities with our Neighbor ministry partners in Charlotte. Ask questions and get connected to serve! To request the "Meet Your Neighbor" training for your small group, email   .
