Throughout the Bible, clues appear that actually make Revelation EASY to understand for the one who "digs for hidden treasure" (as Jesus characterized the Kingdom of God). Since this will be a lengthy, ongoing class and we will continue to meet weekly, year-round, men are welcome to join us at any time.

This class will meet through August 31 in FLC 106, and move to the FLC Seminar Room September 7-December 14.

Leader: Dan Busey

Join us as we embark on a verse-by-verse study of the New Testament's final book, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In this in-depth study, we'll come to understand that God has made Revelation understandable - not mysterious - by the use of symbols and images found elsewhere in Scripture.

Throughout the Bible, clues appear that actually make Revelation EASY to understand for the one who "digs for hidden treasure" (as Jesus characterized the Kingdom of God). Since this will be a lengthy, ongoing class and we will continue to meet weekly, year-round, men are welcome to join us at any time.

This class will meet through August 31 in FLC 106, and move to the FLC Seminar Room September 7-December 14.

Its message clearly defines the relationship between Law and grace, and how Christians live under grace, led by the Spirit, free from bondage. Join us for this seven-week Study. (The previous week's video will be shown at 6pm.)

Breathe (Women)

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Women

Mondays, September 11-October 16
9:30-11:30am | Lower FLC
Cost: $11 (plus online convenience fee)
Leader: Vivian Richardson

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness, and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that transformed the Israelites' mindset. He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Mondays, September 11-October 16
9:30-11:30am | Lower FLC

Leader: Vivian Richardson

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness, and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that transformed the Israelites' mindset. He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Breathe (Women)

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Women

Mondays, September 11-October 16
9:30-11:30am | Lower FLC
Cost: $11 (plus online convenience fee)
Leader: Vivian Richardson

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness, and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that transformed the Israelites' mindset. He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Join us as we embark on a verse-by-verse study of the New Testament's final book, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In this in-depth study, we'll come to understand that God has made Revelation understandable - not mysterious - by the use of symbols and images found elsewhere in Scripture.

Throughout the Bible, clues appear that actually make Revelation EASY to understand for the one who "digs for hidden treasure" (as Jesus characterized the Kingdom of God). Since this will be a lengthy, ongoing class and we will continue to meet weekly, year-round, men are welcome to join us at any time.

This class will meet through August 31 in FLC 106, and move to the FLC Seminar Room September 7-December 14.

Breathe (Women)

Adult Class, Charlotte Campus, Women

Mondays, September 11-October 16
9:30-11:30am | Lower FLC
Cost: $11 (plus online convenience fee)
Leader: Vivian Richardson

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness, and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that transformed the Israelites' mindset. He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Breathe (Women)

Mondays, September 11-October 16
9:30-11:30am | Lower FLC
Cost: $11 (plus online convenience fee)
Leader: Vivian Richardson

One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to cease from all the activities and busyness, and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.

In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that transformed the Israelites' mindset. He wanted them to be able to walk in the freedom and enjoy it. So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Join us as we embark on a verse-by-verse study of the New Testament's final book, the Revelation of Jesus Christ. In this in-depth study, we'll come to understand that God has made Revelation understandable - not mysterious - by the use of symbols and images found elsewhere in Scripture.

Throughout the Bible, clues appear that actually make Revelation EASY to understand for the one who "digs for hidden treasure" (as Jesus characterized the Kingdom of God). Since this will be a lengthy, ongoing class and we will continue to meet weekly, year-round, men are welcome to join us at any time.

What does it mean to live under grace? Do you have to keep the Law to be a Christian? All of it or just part of it? Who is right? How will we know? God used an apostle to write a letter to some churches that were struggling with this issue, and this letter still speaks today!

Throughout the Bible, clues appear that actually make Revelation EASY to understand for the one who "digs for hidden treasure" (as Jesus characterized the Kingdom of God). Since this will be a lengthy, ongoing class and we will continue to meet weekly, year-round, men are welcome to join us at any time.

Striving for perfection can often lead men into the dark abyss of legalism, or move them to a perpetual state of apathy because it can never be achieved in this life. There is way for men to pursue godliness while enjoying the freedom that is found in Christ.

Join other men on Friday mornings this fall as we look through Scripture and discuss how this life can actually be a journey of pursuing perfection in Christ and enjoying freedom at the same time. No registration required.

Pure Religion 5K to Help Stamp Out Human Trafficking - April 21, 2018

Charlotte Campus, Church-wide, Pure Religion
Saturday, Apr 21, 2018 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Pure Religion 5K to Help Stamp Out Human Trafficking
Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 9am
Located at the Central Church Charlotte Campus
5301 Sardis Rd., Charlotte, NC 28270

Central Church invites EVERYONE to join us for our 8th annual Pure Religion 5K to promote awareness and fight against human trafficking. There are millions enslaved worldwide – more than at any point in human history. After drug trafficking, human trafficking, or modern-day slavery, is the second-largest criminal industry in the world. Most can’t imagine the horror of a 12-year-old being sold, yet there are an estimated 100,000 minors trapped in sex trafficking in the United States alone. Please join with hundreds in the Charlotte community as we walk or run for freedom of those enslaved.

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans & widows in their distress, & refusing to let the world corrupt you. - James 1:27

Highlights of the 5K:
• More than 1,000 runners/walkers
• Kids Zone with blow-ups
• Face painting
• Coffee Central food & drink
• Music, prizes and fun

All proceeds from this event go to organizations working to eradicate human trafficking in the Charlotte area and around the world. Registration for this event has not begun.

The following cash prizes will be awarded to the following male and female overall finishers in the 5K:

1st-place — $150 
2nd-place — $100
3rd-place — $50
