Faith Formation

During the summer months and the month of December, Faith Formation takes place at 9:15am.

If you would like to join a Faith Formation class when you are in Charlotte on Sundays throughout the year, the Come and See Class is a welcoming and intergenerational class that meets in the Activity Center Parlor.

Care Packages

We know that all college students enjoy receiving mail from home, no matter how close or far away they are. We look at care packages as a way to share with students that their Providence family cares for and is praying for them. 

During the fall semester, we invite church members and student families to participate by providing cards and items to fill the packages.

  • Submit an Address
    • College Students and families must submit a current address by September 15 to receive a care package in the fall.
    • Please include any allergies or snack preferences.
  • We need your help!

    • Please consider writing an encouraging note or donating individually wrapped snacks or $5 gift cards (for 25-20 students) to include in the care packages. You can order directly from our Amazon Wish List or bring items to the college lounge by September 20.

    • If you are donating items specifically for your child, please let us know.

College Summer Program

When students return to Charlotte for the summer season, we seek to reconnect and reestablish community. 

All students (High School Graduates to College Graduates) are invited to join us from May-August for our College Summer Program!

We will gather for faith formation, reconnect and build relationships through fellowship, and serve our church and city through missions.

Parent Resources

While our Summer Program is geared for College-aged Students, they aren’t the only one entering new territory Parents are also learning and growing alongside their young adult children as things begin to shift within the family system. Here are a few resources we hope you’ll find helpful during this time. 

1Preparing to Launch
Fuller Youth Institute has developed a resource to help families like yours have better conversations in the “launching” phase between adolescence and young adulthood.

Parents are often longing for better ways to talk about faith with their kids and to have deeper emotional connection with them. They just struggle to know how, or to reach out in ways that their kids might actually respond. As a response, they have created a 10-session guide that can be used individually, with a spouse or friend, or in a small group or class setting.
