ServeLocal

Our ServeLocal ministry empowers people to seek the welfare of our Charlotte community by investing intentionally into the spiritual, emotional, and social lives of vulnerable children. Below are some of the opportunities to serve with our partner ministries.

  • Gladedale Community

    Church at Charlotte partners with our neighbors, through their Resident Advisory Committee (RAC), in the Gladedale Community. Gladedale is managed by the Charlotte Housing Authority. CAC provides tutors at the Gladedale Community Center on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and provides volunteers for special events throughout the year.

  • Carmel Middle School

    We provide teacher care, help stock the school’s supply closet, and provide tutors and conversation partners for their immigrant and refugee students.

  • Idlewild Elementary School

    Idlewild Elementary is a Title I school in the east area of Charlotte. They have students representing over 40 nationalities and over 20 languages. It is a diverse community with numerous opportunities to show hospitality, tutor children, especially in the English as a Second Language program, and be lunch buddies for children who need to know there are adults in our city who care for them.

  • Charlotte Family Housing

    We serve CFH by providing overnight hosts and meals for the single moms and their children in their transitional program on a regular basis.

  • Urban Ministry Center

    The Urban Ministry Center cares for the homeless community in Charlotte and works to transition them to permanent housing. One of the ways that we participate is by serving in their “Room at the Inn” ministry. We partner with Providence United Methodist to provide shelter, hot meals and encouragement to those experiencing homelessness during the coldest months of the year.

  • UrbanPromise Charlotte

    This organization uses teenagers from within the community, developing them in their faith and leadership to be roles models to the children in their after school programs and summer camps.
