We love hearing stories of how God is moving in the lives of His faithful and we often share these stories during our worship services to encourage you. So you know God answers prayers. So you know you’re not alone in your struggles.
We feel the stories below personify our mission and motivations.

In December 2010, Lake Forest served as the Northside host for the Christmas Village Toy Store, which provides assistance for families in greater Charlotte who want to purchase affordable new toys for their children at Christmas. Rather than simply giving a handout of gifts to at-risk families, we believe in empowering them by providing an opportunity to purchase gifts at a deeply discounted rate. All profits from the store itself are then reinvested into our community to help the poor. Here is a video about what God did through the generosity of individual gifts of time and resources.
