The Skinny: October 6, 2019

Headlines & Sunday Announcements

Sunday, October 6, 2019  

This weekend Warehouse begins a new series! Warehouse is one of around 100 churches in the Charlotte doing this very important series on neighboring. A great addition to this series is the YouVersion reading plan. You can find this week’s reading plan here.

Thanks to all of you signed up for Sunday morning cohorts! Be the Bridge is full and begins this Sunday morning, but due to low registration, we have postponed Storyology in order to connect with each other in another way. We wholeheartedly believe that spending quality time together, wrestling with issues of faith, theology, our own stories, the Scriptures, and spiritual disciplines is essential to our formation and transformation. Over the next few weeks in October, the pastoral staff will be hanging out in the Coffee Room on Sunday morning before the worship service drinking coffee and enjoying conversations. We’d love the opportunity to connect with you and hear your stories as we journey together towards Jesus. Stay tuned for updates regarding Storyology and other upcoming Cohorts.

Ashley Park has been ranked as the highest poverty school in the district. One of the implications of that ranking is that there are students who need help acquiring uniforms to last throughout the year. There is no financially supportive PTA, and the school relies on Community Partners to stock the clothes closet so that replacement uniforms are not paid for out of the pockets of the staff and teachers. In response, Warehouse has set up a Target Gift Registry! Go online and pick out some items from the registry. Many of them are currently on sale – you can get a shirt and pants for $12. You can choose to have your items delivered directly to Warehouse 242 where we will sort them and deliver them.

Various Dates and Times  

You’re invited to participate in the fellowship of the women of Warehouse 242 as we are devoted to the teaching in the book of 1 John for a 7 week bible study. We will explore how this New Testament book illuminates God’s character, as well as our own, and what it means to live in community with one another. We will gather in three homes across the city at the dates and times listed below. Pick the group that suits you best. 

Park Road Area – Dawn Woods – Wednesdays 9:30am, starting October 2

West Charlotte Area – Carla Love & Robin VanGundy – Mondays 7:00pm, starting October 7

Quail Hollow Area – Shelley Tuttle & Danielle Hughes – Tuesdays 7:00pm, starting October 8

Sunday, October 13, 2019 ~ 5:00pm

Take the opportunity to come together as a unified church body to hear Dave Runyan, the author of The Art of Neighboring, lead us in a workshop on how to neighbor well at Forest Hill South Park. Together, we will enjoy dinner, music, connect with friends and engage together in an equipping session with Dave on how to become better neighbors. He will cover the hurdles we all face as well as a time to answer questions. Childcare is available for birth – 2nd grade. Please indicate your need for childcare in your registration.

Friday, October 18, 2019 – Sunday, October 20, 2019  

This year’s retreat offers a place to relax, refresh, and celebrate. There will also be ample time to connect with others, grow deeper in faith, enjoy the outdoors, participate in fun activities, rest, and eat well!  Our very own Jonathan Hiatt and his Gigglin’ Pig BBQ rig, will be there to serve us the best NC BBQ you’ll ever devour.

We are extremely lucky to have Chard Karger serve as our speaker the year.  Chad has been serving in local churches for the past 25 years and is the founder of BetterDays – a ministry that provides spiritual direction for church leaders and he is also an author.  Chad is an outdoors enthusiast, backcountry nut, husband and father of three.  He loves Jesus and is passionate about people being transformed by him.  He is currently on staff with Porters Call, a counseling ministry in the Nashville area, whose mission is to be a service of counsel, support, and encouragement free of charge to recording artists and their families and to provide safe and confidential refuge for artists to deal with the issues they face.
