Ways to Connect



We believe Worship is at the heart of disciple-making.  Jesus Himself established the primacy of worship when he said, “Worship God and Him alone” (Matthew 4:10).  Sounds important!  It may sound a bit predictable but the center of our congregational life at St. Giles is our Sunday morning worship service.  If you come to Sunday worship (10:30 AM) here’s what you’ll experience . . . a warm welcome, an engaged congregation that expresses their love for Jesus Christ through heartfelt and responsive worship, guitars and blue jeans (rather than an organ and suits), a relevant sermon grounded in Scripture and filled with practical life application, and an opportunity to receive personal prayer.  If you give us your contact information we’ll follow up with you to welcome you once again, answer any questions, and invite you to our pastor’s home to meet others and make some friends.  And, just to make it clear, we think worship begins with Sunday morning but it’s a daily lifestyle of gratitude, prayer, and humility that both flows out of Sunday worship and prepares us for it.


The word “disciple” means “learner” . . . and the center of learning for us is the Bible.  As passionate as we are about worship, we’re even more passionate about Scripture because we’ve seen its’ effect in our own lives.  We’ve got two primary vehicles of Study at St. Giles, Sunday School and Affinity Groups.

Sunday School matters at St. Giles. Not only do we provide a robust program for kids of all ages and youth, we have a number of adult Sunday School classes you can join. In addition to occasional topical classes, we offer ongoing classes targeting Bible Study, Young Families, and Families of Teens. Classes meet on the St. Giles campus at 9:30 AM and run to 10:15 AM. To learn more email Pastor Tim Carey.

Our Current Schedule:

Adult Class - Meeting in the "large room" in the Fellowship Hall.
Young Families - Meeting in the Corner Classroom in the Fellowship Hall.
Families of Teens - Meeting in the "Gathering Space" of the gym foyer.

We live in a society wherein people stay indoors and hide behind digital identities.  Sounds safe . . . and lonely.  At St. Giles we have a network of PARISH GROUPS spread throughout the greater Charlotte region.  Jesus said, ‘’Love one another” (John 13:34) and so Parish Groups share meals together, pray for one another, and serve one another when needs around.  It’s a gift to be in a smaller community that’s close to home, and to get to know those in the church who live nearby.  We’ve got 9 parishes spread through the city, email Pastor Tim Carey to learn more.


Jesus said, “I am among you as one who serves” (Luke 22:27).   Serving is at the heart of Christian identity, finding purpose in life, and bringing honor to God.  Our goal at St. Giles is to have everyone engaged in service and we’ve developed a process to help you find your gifts in ministry and those whom God has especially laid on your heart.  Called “The MO Class”, it’s a step by step discipleship tool to help you find your place in service alongside other believers.
