Just Faith

What is JustFaith?  "Meeting people where they are and walking with them toward Christ."

JustFaith is an intensive, small-group process for faithful Christians looking to deepen their commitment to care for vulnerable people and our planet.  Through prayer, study, dialogue, and immersions, participants form community as they explore critical realities and their implications to their lives and their faith.  The group will employ books, videos, guest speakers, discussion, prayer, retreats and hands-on experiences.  Participants also form a community and share a journey of faith and compassion that is life-giving.  Visit the JustFaith website for more.

    • Tuesday evenings:  7:00 - 9:00 pm, September 25 - November 27
    • OR Thursday mornings:  10:00 am - Noon, September 27 - November 29.

What is Just Faith? 

  • A weekly gathering of people who learn, discuss, experience, pray about, and participate in the important social issues of our time.
  • A platform to reflect on the world alongside people with different backgrounds and perspectives.
  • A variety of experiences...one week you may read about poverty in America and have a lively discussion. The next week, you might be talking with someone experiencing homelessness in Charlotte or serving lunch at the Men's Shelter. 
  • Another week you might go to a halfway house for women at the end of their prison sentences and talk to them about the challenges of integrating back into society. The next week you may be taking your car to a certain auto detailing shop because you learned that the owner goes out of his way to provide employment opportunities to these women as they try to create a new life for themselves.
