The Charlotte congregation of the Living Church of God is large and vibrant. It offers diverse activities and services opportunities for our students to be involved. These include Bible studies for “singles,” Spokesman Club, monthly congregational Bible studies, picnics, group social gatherings, the annual Charlotte Winter Weekend, the Charlotte Singles Weekend and much more.
The Charlotte Winter Weekend brings over 500 brethren from around the nation and the globe together for a fun and exciting 4-day weekend at the end of December. The weekend includes Bible studies, church services, a dinner dance, sports day, and often additional seminars for singles, married couples, and teens.
The Charlotte Singles Weekend traditionally takes place over the Memorial Day weekend at the end of May. Historically, 70+ singles from across North America and beyond gather for a 4-day weekend. This weekend focuses on the spiritual, while providing many opportunities for developing deeper friendships with singles of like mind. Past Singles Weekends have included a day at the National White Water Center, a visit to a local winery, a “great race” type of scavenger hunt in “Uptown Charlotte,” a cookout, dinner dance, and much more.
The Charlotte congregation also sponsors a Community Outreach program in which students are encouraged to participate. This program involves Church brethren in serving the needy of the community and in the past has include events like: presenting musical talent to residents of a local nursing home, serving at a community soup kitchen, and working with Habitat for Humanity.
Students are invited and encouraged to participate in these congregational activities, however they should carefully select activities which best fulfill their needs and set their priorities accordingly.
