The Children's Storytime at The Grounds was created to be a place where you and your child can spend time together learning about God and having fun! Designed for Pre-K aged children and older, each Storytime is led by a dynamic storyteller who brings faith-based children's books to life. You will also get to help your child make a craft that allows you to bring the lesson home with you. Finished with a snack time, the Children's Storytime is the perfect way to spend a Tuesday morning.
Invite your friends to join in on the fun! No registration required. And don't forget to stop by The Grounds for a cup of coffee or a sweet snack!
There is a clear command in the Bible to care for the widow and the orphan, and to serve the least and the lost. Serving at a nursing home is a wonderful way to be able to do this, and a fantastic opportunity for families to serve together.
Olde Knox Commons is Meck's partner for our Nursing Home Ministry. The activities that we do with the residents and the simple act of being there to spend time with them, brings so much joy to their lives.
Join us on Saturday, July 9 from 9:15 - 10:30 a.m. helping to serve at this home and to begin building amazing relationships with both the residents and other people from Meck!

We would love for you to join us for this year's MAX-Out Mission Week 2016, an extreme three-day event where students come together to share the love of Jesus with the Charlotte area community through acts of service. Each day, teams of students will spread out all over our city to take part in two different service projects. This is an amazing opportunity to not only learn about following God's call to love and serve others but to see the difference that can be made in just three days.
During the MAX-Out Mission Week we will flood social media with the stories of all the amazing things our students are doing to serve. We'll also provide the contact info for our mission partners each day so that you can continue to serve as a family because we know that this week will make such an impact on the students. This will be one of the best experiences your student has this summer. You don't want to miss it!
