Dinner on Thursday, March 19th, will take place in the Fellowship Hall. Due to space constraints, we will have two separate dinner seatings. There is a 200-person maximum for each dinner seating. Seating one will begin promptly at 4:30pm (ending at 5:15pm so the staff can prepare for the second seating). Seating two will begin promptly at 5:30pm. This will be a plated meal rather than buffet-style, so on-time arrival is very important.  


There will be one dinner seating on Friday, March 20th, in the Fellowship Hall. The dinner will take place after the final General Assembly worship experience. There is a 200 person maximum for this dinner seating. The General Assembly Planning Team, Providence staff, and CBFNC staff encourage you to consider exploring the local restaurants in Charlotte as a dinner option. We invite you to go out into the community with your General Assembly friends and support the local restaurants. A list of Charlotte-area restaurants will be available soon with driving directions from Providence.

Book and A Buck Donation

Please bring Bibles and Christian study books to the General Assembly for Books on Mission. Those donations will be sorted, repackaged in waterproof boxes, and loaded on to the big container for shipment to seminaries and Bible schools overseas.

To help cover the cost of shipping, please tuck $1 inside each book. If you are unable to include $1 per book, please donate your book anyway!

Books on Mission is especially interested in having the kinds of things that are found in a pastor’s library—Bibles, commentaries, Bible dictionaries, Bible atlases, and books on subjects such as doctrine, Biblical archaeology, church administration and leadership, how to teach the Bible, etc. The old church study course books on particular books of the Bible are helpful.

International Ministry Partnership
with Marc and Kim Wyatt

The CBFNC Mission and Ministry Offering supports a wide variety of ministries in our state and beyond.  One of the Ministries highlighted in this year’s emphasis is our CBFNC partnership with Marc and Kim Wyatt who are working with Internationals, refugees, international students, and human trafficking victims.   

One hundred percent of this year’s General Assembly offering will be used to support the work of the Wyatts as they join, train our churches and individuals to share the Gospel in culturally appropriate, loving ways, meeting the needs of Internationals in our own backyards.
