Mission: Charlotte Christmas

High School Students! Mission: Charlotte Christmas is your chance to serve over Christmas break!

Mission: Charlotte Christmas is a bit smaller in scale than the summer Mission: Charlotte project, but it is still designed to provide a space for learning and growing as disciples of Christ, developing as leaders, using our gifts and skills to bless others, and having fun as a team. Through this mission, we also get to help further the work of New City in our local community.

Mission: Charlotte Christmas team members:

  • participate in 3 training, team-building, and planning meetings in advance of the mission experience
  • take ownership of planning and executing outreach activities (as a team) in a local community
  • visit the community the day before camp to meet and invite kids to the main event
  • spend two days "on mission," running a Christmas camp for kids

Note: Because Mission: Charlotte does require an investment of time prior to Christmas break, please review the dates and times below to ensure that you can be fully present and engaged. If you have any questions about the schedule, please contact Melissa Lewis.


Times are subject to change slightly.
