HUNGARIAN CHURCH IN THE CAROLINAS
Working Towards a Brighter Future
We are a non-profit organization founded in 2009, with the leadership of the Reverend Andras Debreczeni. As part of the Eastern classes of the Hungarian Reformed Church in America, we work together with the Hungarian Community Church of Georgia, the Hungarian Reformed Church of Washington and with the Hungarian Community Church in Daytona Beach, FL.
Our Center of Belief:
We believe that God is love, and is embodied in us and in our relationships with each other.
Our church community seeks to embrace those for whom it is a literal truth, and also those who understand this more symbolically, or try to find its meaning for themselves.
We welcome anyone at our services and events. It is for believers, seekers, agnostics, the intellectually curious, for Hungarians and for those who are interested in the Hungarian language.
Please join us!
HUNGARIAN CHURCH IN THE CAROLINAS AT A GLANCE
A Bit of Background
We are small Hungarian Christian community driven by a single goal to serve.
Our goals are:
1. To provide fellowship and community to those who need it.
2. To give an opportunity for creative work to those who can give their time and talent: playing music, reading poetry, taking part in or leading discussion groups, building community.
3. To travel with the lonely, share the journey with others.
We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
We hold church services four times a year at Myers Park Presbyterian Church, and a special Easter service at our Easter camp. These are based on the Presbyterian (reformed) tradition, but have an ecumenical approach.
We provide the Lord's Supper for those who wish to participate in it, and we officiate ceremonies like Christenings, confirmations, weddings, funerals, celebration of life or memorial services as needed.
If we can't be there personally for a sick, lonely or bereaved member or friend, we try to establish phone contact.
Since our discussions and organizational meetings are held via Skype, we invite future members and organizers not only from the Charlotte area, but also from greater distances in North-and South Carolina, and even from other states.
