Have you ever seen what’s going on in the world and wanted to do something to make an impact? 

Now you have that chance… Carmel has a few opportunities for you to serve with purpose ministries impacting our city - from an hour or two unpacking this Saturday to making an investment of 1 hour each week in the life of a struggling student, there are a lot of ways you can make a difference.

Earlier this summer, as the Supreme Court’s decision was in the news the Lord began working in the hearts of some of Carmel’s young adults as they prayed and spoke with others face-to-face and online. Through prayer and conversations, these young women felt led to support moms in the Charlotte area through the Queen City Pregnancy Resource Center. Last Saturday, they hosted a consignment sale that raised $670 for
QC PRC! The extra clothing was donated to Second Chance boutiques in Waxhaw and Monroe, which support the Turning Point organization.
They saw an area that was a hot-button issue and significant need, yet were confident that they wanted to stand up for their convictions and reflect the love of Jesus to others.

You can, too. Are you looking for ways that you can make a difference and reflect Jesus’ love to our Neighbors?
