Urban Plunge (Weekend)

During COVID-19

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host our traditional weekend program at this time. However, as you may have heard “pivot” is the word of the year! We are now hosting Saturdays of Service for local groups within an hour radius. Participating groups will meet CROSS Staff in Uptown Charlotte at 9 am. Staff will lead our world-famous Urban Walk, a 1.5-mile hike through Uptown where groups will take a closer look at this history of Charlotte, and the current social justice issues our city is facing. After, groups will serve at one of our ministry partners located in Uptown, supporting our partners by sorting donations, facility beautification, or packaging meal kits for families in need. After debriefing the day with their CROSS Guide, groups will head home at 5 pm.

This walkable, outdoors, masked required, no contact day of service is safe and a total blast! The best part is we’re able to help our ministry partners continue to care for the community.

Typical Weekends

Currently on pause

Engage in a learning experience like no other on weekends in the fall, winter and spring. Youth, college students, and families are welcome. Join us on Friday evening for orientation, and then get ready for devotions and a full day of service on Saturday. Generally, groups serve at two ministry sites on Saturday, which may include serving people who are hungry, homeless, elderly, or disabled. Conclude your time in Charlotte worshiping with us at MPPC’s contemporary service on Sunday morning, and then depart mid-morning. The cost is $105 per person, which includes all three meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.
