Winter 2022 Session


 January 24th- February 28th

Shepherd's Charlotte understands the importance of social interaction! To keep in line with our mission of providing a network of support to increase social connection and combat the negative effects of isolation, we are doing everything within our control to host our winter session in person! 

Our commitment to the health and well-being of our community members continues to be our top priority. AIL participants are some of the most at risk individuals so for that reason we feel it necessary to require proof of vaccination and booster in order to attend our winter session. We will also be strictly following the guidelines laid out by the NCDHHS, CDC, and St. John's Baptist Church. 

  • Each class is a 6 week series

  • Location: St. John's Baptist Church (Broach Hall), 300 Hawthorne Lane Charlotte, NC 28204. Parking is located off Hawthorne Ln. the 1st drive past the church. Signs will be posted directing you to the parking area as well as to the building entrance.

  • Arrive anytime after 9:30 am to pick up your name tag and enjoy fellowship with other participants.
