Sunday School News

Charlotte Family Housing will be the recipient of our 2017-2018 Sunday School offerings.

This was the location of our 4th & 5th Grade MLK Jr. Mission Day outing. Their mission is to empower families to achieve long-term self-sufficiency through shelter, housing, supportive service and advocacy. DCPC children met, ate with, and played with children at Charlotte Family Housing in January. Yes, children are homeless too, and DCPC children will make a difference for our local families. Offerings will be collected through May 13. Here for additional information on this ministry.
