Summer Happenings

Sunday School Activity

Parents of children and youth are encouraged to participate in Family Worship this summer. No classes are scheduled for children and youth so we can all worship as one family during one of our four service times.


Visit the Adults Sunday School class page to view summer scheduling for adults.


On July 2, during the 9:45 Sunday School hour, all are welcome to Francis Chapel when we host special guest, Rev. Sam Om. Sam is a United Methodist missionary serving in Cambodia. His faith journey and call to mission is dramatic and compelling. He was born into a Buddhist family in Cambodia, fled North Vietnam invasion to Thailand, was introduced to Christianity in a refugee camp there and eventually emigrated to the US by way of the Philippines. Come hear more about Sam and our denomination’s ministry in his native land.

 Other Adult Activity

Yoga with Melanie will continue most Thursdays throughout summer other than a recess during the whole month of July. Call the front desk at 704-376-8584 to verify any other Thursday breaks in schedule. Join us from 11-12:15 in room 031, in the basement level of Snyder Building.


Mid-day, mid-week Centering Prayer is offered each Wednesday from 11:30 to noon in Francis Chapel.


See the Young Adults page for summertime Get-to-Know-Your-Clergy Gatherings designed especially for the 20’s and 30’s age group!


Our Vision for Faith Formation

Learning takes us on a lifelong path. Our Wesleyan heritage affirms a journey of sanctification, of being made holy, that requires an ongoing dedication to growing. As we study, pray, read and talk, we develop habits that shape us into more loving, Christ-like people. Faith Formation offers a path for continued learning. It sees each program as connected to others, all part of the same goal, from childhood to all stages of adulthood.
