We acknowledge the extraordinary moment in which we are living. The call to be brave can be overwhelming. But when we are together, we invite the power of God. In community, we find bravery. Bravery allows us to take the next step, even if that next step is just getting out of bed.
It was during another unprecedented time that our parish found its beginning. When gas rationing during World War II restricted driving to Charlotte’s other Episcopal parishes, 85 families created a spiritual home in a Providence Road storefront. Christ Church was born. Our parish is a testament to the power of God when we are Brave Together.
The words of Jesus remind us that God is with us simply by gathering in His name. This year’s season of financial stewardship calls for bravery. We invite you to join us in community as we give together — as we are Brave Together.
In Christ’s Love,
The Reverend Chip Edens, Rector
