WINDS OF WORSHIP
IGNITE is our traditional Wednesday night program, including dinner and ministry for all ages. IGNITE is a chance for the whole church to come together in mini- semesters throughout the year. It’s a time to hang out together, as well as get deeper into God’s Word.
Several times throughout the year we get together as a church and enjoy a catered meal at 5:30 pm and then have classes and programs for all ages at 6:30 pm. Our next mini semester of IGNITE will be in the fall of 2016.
At St. Giles we have several mini semesters of Small Group Bible Studies that take place throughout the year at homes around the city in Charlotte, Matthews and Fort Mill. We are currently meeting in 10 homes around the city each Wednesday night at 7pm until May 18th. For more info on locations, call the church office 704-553-1977 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Community is a big deal at St. Giles and as a result small groups matter. Recognizing that small groups have been growing at St. Giles in the past several months, the Session (pastor and elders) have taken the time to seek God’s mind on the subject of small groups. During the fall and summer we collectively talked through and wrote a short document stating our beliefs about small group at St. Giles, their role in our church, and how we believe they are best organized in our midst. To read what the Session has to say about small groups at St. Giles, what we believe and how we see God at work in our midst, click here: St. Giles Small Groups.

St. Giles Ministries
St. Giles loves Jesus and loves one another. We enjoy serving the Lord and serving one another. Below is a list of St. Giles ministries where this love is put into action.
Aletheia – pronounced (al ay `thi ah) is the Greek word for “truth” found in scripture. The name Aletheia was birthed from the scripture John 8:32, “and you shall know the Truth (Aletheia) and the Truth shall set you free.” This ministry is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry whose sole purpose is to get to the root of those areas that hinder your personal relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit so that you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, visit Aletheia’s website www.aministries.com.
Ministry of Helps
Our ministry is a group of St. Giles folks, who help St. Giles folks in times of need. We are a group of volunteers for each individual task. No special skills or gifts are required, just a desire to love and help each other. Some examples of helping each other are: hospital visits, giving rides, providing practical support to those that have medical issues, help in times of unusual crisis, etc. For more information on this ministry, contact contact David Evans #704-904-3555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Widows & Widowers Ministry
James 1:27: “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Our purpose is to minister to our widows in prayer, fellowship, and to be of assistance in and around their home when there is a need. Every few weeks we gather all the widows and widowers together to enjoy a time of fellowship. We also take time periodically to invite one or two members who are single or a couple to come and experience this special fellowship time. This gives the opportunity for our special group to have time with other members of the body and for them to hear and learn of the wisdom of these fine men and women. If you are a widow or have a heart to minister to this group, please contact Margie Gladden at email@example.com.
