Branch General Meeting Location

This year the meetings will be in the Mary Nalley Mission Center Building of Providence Baptist Church (4921 Randolph Road, Charlotte, NC  28211).  The Church is located on the left side of Randolph (it is Not named for the street) as you go from Sharon Amity further south to Sardis Road.  The Building has changed, not the Church.

If you go to the web-site for Providence Baptist Church www.providencebc.org and click on ‘about us’ and then ‘campus’ you will see an overview of their property. The street on the far left is Randolph Road.  The building behind the others and next to the ballfield is the Gordon Weekley Chapel / Mission Center Building.  The Mission Center Building is attached to the back of the Chapel and where we will be meeting.  You can turn in either driveway and go thru parking lots to get there.  There are a few parking spaces in front, including a couple of handicap ones.  To enter the Mission Center Building, go down the sidewalk to the left of the Chapel, through the door and into the room where the meetings will be held.
