Social Mobility studies reveal that Charlotte is divided by race, income, family structure, school quality, and social capital. A growing collaborative of churches, non-profit organizations, and marketplace leaders called The West Charlotte Coalition is actively engaged in bringing Biblical Justice to these stubborn facts in the zip code of 28208. This Coalition exists to serve children and families in the neighborhoods nearest to the eight Title 1 schools within 3 miles of us.
The West Charlotte Coalition unites around a love for Jesus and a love for our city. We express this through weekly Wednesday prayer, monthly collaborative worship gatherings, church-school partnerships, and reconciling relationships. We have a particular focus on reading support for K-3 students. Together, we can achieve measurable positive results for the emerging generations in our part of the city. But first and foremost, it all starts with Prayer.
Join us at Center City Church (inside The Movement Center at 2225 Freedom Drive) for weekly Wednesday Prayer from Noon to 1 p.m. This recurring event on our calendars is the immovable pillar to our movement, and the essential starting point for engagement in our part of the city.
We look forward to meeting with you and praying alongside you!
