THINK OF THE IMPACT 80+ CHURCHES CAN HAVE FOR CHRIST IF THEY ALL WORKED TOGETHER. One Great Day will connect our churches with local agencies for community missions and ministry.

  • It is community-focused.
  • It is targeted in Stanly & Montgomery counties.
  • It is hands-on serving.
  • It offers something for everyone - all skill levels and ages welcome.
  • It facilitates church unity - multiple churches working together.
  • It gets your people outside of the church to be the church.

One Great Day will connect churches in our Association to work together to show the love of Jesus in our community. Numerous service projects will be scheduled around our counties on May 1st for church groups to sign up and serve. These projects will be for all ages and skill level and challenge your congregation to go beyond the walls.
