We are excited to have your children learn with us in Empowered Kids, our Children’s Church. Please register your children between nursery and 5th Grade at the HOME table in the lobby and send them to Empowered Kids after Praise & Worship for a life-changing Sunday morning . . . every Sunday morning! Kindly, please pick-up your children directly following the end of service. Thank you.

Do you want to prayer? Are you an intercessory prayer warrior? Have you been missing out on experiencing God’s power? Chase after God’s glory with us Tuesday mornings from 6:30 – 7:00am.

Call (712) 451-0800; Again, call (712) 451-0800 then Enter Access Code: 640686#

At The ELC we find strength in chasing after God’s glory. We understand it begins and ends in prayer and fasting. Experience the most dynamic Morning Glory Prayer in the Carolinas by calling in to the prayer line this and every Tuesday.


We are blessing families from the Berewick Elementary School with Christmas Toys again this year. Please donate a new unwrapped Christmas toy by dropping it off in the lobby Sunday morning. Please pick up a wish list of toys from the families in need at the Home table in the lobby.  


Education is a direct pathway to success. We here at The ELC have a great opportunity to impact the lives of children and their families by volunteering right here at Berewick Elementary. There are multiple ways to get involved. There are opportunities to read, tutor, and mentor students that only require as little as an hour of your time a week. Join Pastor Barrett and other volunteers in giving one hour a week to empower the lives of children. For more information or to volunteer sign-up at the HOME table in the Lobby or sign-up on our website EmpoweredLiving.Church by clicking the tab Volunteer Sign-Ups.


Have you signed up for a connect group? We have launched our new connect groups. Do you live in north Charlotte? We have a group for you. Do you live near the church? We have a group for you. Are you a man on a mission? Are you single? We have a group for you. Go to our website EmpoweredLiving.Church and click on the Connect Group tab to sign-up.

You ask, what is a Connect Group? Connect Groups are small groups that meet for an intentional gathering, meeting regularly for the purpose of joining God’s mission. Our goal is to have everyone connected to a group of friends on a journey of becoming better Believers, Disciples, and people.  

The next singles Connect Group will be held on the second Wednesday of December and the Men’s Connect Group will meet on the morning of the second Saturday of December. 


Please save the date. We are having our annual Christmas Party on the afternoon of Sunday, December 16 at 4:00pm. Feel free to invite your family and friends to join us for an amazing evening of fun, great food, laughter, and good times.  


This past Tuesday was Giving Tuesday. GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. We are seeking 30 givers to give $30 by this coming Tuesday to launch our Year of Growth in 2019. Will you be one of the 30? Give in service today or our website by this Tuesday.


We are a church committed to living blessed lives through our service, love, and giving. There are three ways to give:

  1. Online ~ EmpoweredLiving.Church/giving
  2. Text-to-give ~ Send a text to 84321 to give
  3. Cash or Check


“The vision of the Empowered Living Church is to make disciples of Jesus Christ in a fun, contemporary, Spirit-filled environment that emphasizes worship, relevant ministry, spiritual growth, serving others, celebration, and giving in a love-centered community of friends.”
