What does is mean to be a Christian in today's world?

Our Baptismal Covenant is the backbone of our faith,
and describes the ways in which we live out our faith as Christians.

ABOUT THE WAY FORWARD

The Way Forward Ministry seeks to explore how we can best come together as Christians to live more deeply into our faith, in the midst of the tumultuous unrest we see throughout our communities, the nation, and the world. 

This ministry seeks to provide the parish with opportunities to fulfill the mission of the church, by engaging in conversations on a variety of social topics that lead to action, ultimately bringing us more closely together as a parish, and a broader Charlotte community.

We extend an invitation to the parish to get involved with The Way Forward!

 

We look forward to journeying with you, learning with you, exploring with you, and growing with you.
