Metrolina Baptist Association
1324 The Plaza, Charlotte, NC 28205
9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.


Parenting our children is one of life’s greatest challenges and one of it’s greatest blessings. Psalm 127:3-5 says, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them…”

If you’ve ever worked with concrete, you know you only have so much time to shape it before it becomes immovable. It’s the same way with our children. We only have a few years to shape them — to sharpen our arrows — before we launch them out into this world. Authors David Thomas and Sissy Goff will be coming to discuss topics covered in their books Are My Kids on Track? and Raising Boys and Girls. This conference is designed to help you better understand your kids, develop a plan for your parenting, and equip you for this great calling.

We’re excited for you to join us! See below for full schedule and more information about our speakers, David Thomas and Sissy Goff.

If you have any questions, please email info@mercycharlotte.com.


Please register by October 15th. Space is limited so don’t wait to reserve your spot! Individual tickets are $30, or Couples tickets are $45. Please have payment ready when you RSVP.

*No onsite childcare will be provided for this event.*


Baptist Children’s Homes Annual Offering

Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina (BCH) brings hope and healing to children and families in crisis. For more than 130 years,  the nonprofit has offered caring homes to countless boys and girls who come from circumstances ranging from family dysfunctionto situations of abuse, neglect and abandonment.

The organization provides a myriad of services including children’s residential care, family care for single mothers and their children, homes for developmentally disabled adults, weekday education, and a resource-based program for aging adults.

BCH and its highly-trained staff serve all 100 counties with locations in 21 North Carolina communities plus an orphanage in Guatemala.

“For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.” // Luke 19:10

In 2016, 147 decision were made for Christ! Your prayers and support through the ANNUAL OFFERING changes children’s lives! Because of your participation in the offering, boys and girls lost in a world of abuse, neglect and dysfunction are resscued and given a compassionate refuge at Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina.

Most of all, North Carolina children are introduced to the life-changing love of Jesus. 80% of Baptist Children’s Homes’ residents come to us unchurched and unreached for Christ. 

Your gift brings hope to children and families.
