We love what these ministries are doing in greater Charlotte. And you can be a part of it!
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:
(Monday and Tuesday nights)
Caterpillar Ministries exists for the hope that children and their families living in Huntersville’s Huntington Green community will have a relationship with Jesus that enables them to become all that God has created them to be.
We work primarily with children from birth to high school and their mothers. We currently serve over 150 students through our educational, spiritual, mentoring and basic needs assistance programs. Genuine relationships are at the heart of everything we do, and those relationships are what set Caterpillar Ministries apart.
Opportunities to serve with us:
Mission: Working together with our neighbors in Huntington Green, we will identify community concerns and develop Christ-Centered solutions through: partnerships with local churches, ministries and service organizations; community involvement; establishing sustainable programs which residents of the community find beneficial.
