    •   Opening Reception for our new Immigrant Hospitality Center (415 E Main St, Lincolnton)  on Sunday, January 27, 3:00 to 5:00pm. At the Immigrant Hospitality Center we seek to foster an environment conducive to receiving one another well for the glory of God (Rom. 15:7). In doing so, we want to help others see the image of God in people who are culturally different, as well as emphasize our common humanity, for we all value economic opportunity, family, safety, and freedom.   In promoting welcoming communities we seek to provide legal services, focusing on naturalization, and promote other community integration initiatives such as ESL and participation in the workforce, as well as the broader local community. We seek to facilitate meaningful contact and interaction through community dialog and joint projects where we connect leadership from government, business, and faith organizations in order to bridge the divides between immigrants and long-term residents to foster a stronger more unified community. Through marshaling legal resources in our local area we hope to serve a wide range of unmet legal needs for immigrants as we seek to provide resources as well as a referral network to assist in community integration.  Please contact Bobby Farmer for more information:  (704)530-0012 or bfarmer@cirnc.org

    • Senior Adult Rally Planning Meeting #2: Monday January 28th at 7 PM-Missions Center
  • February EVENTS

    FEB 7

    1. Church Financial Seminar, Thursday, February 7, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, Greater Gaston Association (1607 Rankin Lake Rd, Gastonia, NC 28052).  Developing a compensation package for pastors and church staff can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. There is no such thing as a “cookie cutter” approach, and there are many things to consider such as salary, employer provided benefits, tax savings strategies, and more. Is your staff ready for retirement? What cash and non-cash benefits can the church provide its staff? What are the latest tax and administrative rules implemented during the last year that affect how our churches do business? How do you handle designated contributions given to your church, and how are you reporting those funds? “Let all things be done decently and in order” is the theme of the 2018-19 financial and tax workshops presented by senior consultant Davis Blount with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina to address these and other issues. The workshops are designed for ministers, financial administrators, treasurers, church committees and other interested lay leaders. Topics will include: 

    • Preparing for retirement. 

    • Compensation planning. 

    • The Church Retirement Plan. 

    • Employer provided benefits. 

    • Managing designated funds. 

    • Reporting charitable giving. 

    • Tax updates. 

    • FAQs from affiliated churches. 

    • Participant questions and answers. 

    Reservations must be made:   If we can ever assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
