Prayerful and Practical Support and Financial Giving are some great ways to give to God's work in Charleston
As Charleston Community Church comes together to worship, learn, and grow, there are several ways individuals can contribute to the church’s mission. These avenues of support encompass Prayerful, Practical, and Financial contributions, each playing a crucial role in sustaining God’s work in Charleston.
Prayer is the driving force that underpins all endeavors of the church. Believers are encouraged to lift up their voices in prayer for the church’s leaders, members, and visitors. Our Minister Andy Robertson, Rachel Parenteau, Gospel Worker (from 20schemes), Graeme and Owen leaders of Crossroads, Caireen leading Wee Rascals, Ann heading up the Senior’s Lunch, Bev and Rachel - Ladies' Bible Study Leaders, the Elders, the musicians, and numerous other church members and regular attenders that contribute to the life of the church. When people pray they actively participate in supporting our small congregation.
Until we are able to get the resources to write and distribute our own prayer and news letter, please feel free to subscribe to the Free Church of Scotland Prayer Notes that inform us of the local prayer needs (sent weekly to your email inbox).
Rolling up one’s sleeves to support the church’s initiatives is another impactful way to contribute. Charleston Community Church provides numerous opportunities for hands-on involvement. Mission work allows individuals to spread the message of faith through action, while assisting in organizing events such as holiday clubs in the summer.
Simple acts like serving tea and coffee before services contribute to a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making visitors and members feel valued and cherished. Other ways to serve are to volunteer to read the Bible passages on Sunday, help out at the Impact club as a leader, volunteer in the crèche, operating the sound board, and most importantly welcoming visitors and usuals alike at the café and church. Matthew 20:26-28 “Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave — just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
