Local Outreach

Local Mission Partnerships:

We love what these ministries are doing in greater Charlotte. And you can be a part of it!

  • Room in the Inn

    For many years, Lake Forest has partnered with Charlotte’s Urban Ministry Center to provide a warm and friendly environment in the name of Jesus for guests who are experiencing homelessness. 

    We transform our Huntersville campus and offer meals, showers, clean clothes and, most importantly, ourselves: a handshake, a hug, a caring smile, a listening ear, or even a dance!

    Would you consider serving with us this winter? Come serve by yourself, or as a family…all are welcome!

    2017 Hosting Sessions:
