The Jeremiah Fund

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.” –Jeremiah 29:7 

Inspired by God’s words to the exiles in Babylon through the prophet Jeremiah, Church at Charlotte’s Elders have established a fund that focuses on engaging our congregation to seek the welfare of the city of Charlotte.

The Jeremiah Fund will initially be funded with $125,000 from the Elder Board. These funds are available because of the generosity of the CAC congregation and the surplus created as CAC ministries finished the 2013-2014 fiscal year under budget.

Grants will be distributed through CAC members to local non-profit organizations they actively serve. Grants will be awarded for $750 to these organizations if certain criteria are met.
