Church of the Week
The Fellowship place mission
Rev. Dr. Michael Robinson, Pastor
Fellowship Place Mission
PO Box 668252
Charlotte, NC 28266
The Fellowship Place: Where ARMS are EXTENDED, HEARTS are MENDED, and SOULS are BLENDED!
Together as a fellowship of believers we go forth telling the story, spreading the Good News, reaching out to others in the name of Jesus Christ and showing love to all.
As a church, we will reach beyond the walls of the worship house in order to both reach and serve the community.
We will be the hands and voice of God in an inspiring faith movement that passionately responds to Christ's call for hospitality by providing a spiritual home where God's Word is made culturally relevant.
"Go, do, and do it joyfully."
On January 19, 2013 we joined thousands of other organizations as a National Day of Service Event with our outreach program, tFp on the the Corner. We registered and extended invitations to friends, family and the public to join us as volunteers on this day of service. We were elated to have several persons join us as volunteers. Two National Day of Service volunteers opened their trunks and donated clothes. One lady said that she had been riding around for days with the clothes and that God led her to our event to make her donation. She then stayed and helped staff our clothing station.
Throughout the months of November and December, 2012, The Fellowship Place (tFp) members participated with the Presbytery of Charlotte's Disaster Response Team in their collection drive to acquire and deliver badly needed items to areas hit by the super storm, "Sandy". On Jan 2, 2013, tFp members gathered two boxes full of supplies for Hurricane Sandy victims. On Jan 4, 2013, our donations were picked up by Mr. Fred Wally, the point person for the Presbytery of Charlotte's Disaster Response Team, for delivery to those in need.
During December and January we served as a site giving community service credit to several high school students who volunteered at our outreach event, tFp On The Corner
A local dentist partnered with us for the Sandy project by providing toothbrushes, toothpaste and also a local retailer partnered with us for our January tFp On The Corner by providing clothing for his retail store.
