WELCOME FROM HAYWOOD STREET:     What a busy week! Golf for Awareness was, once again, a huge success. We enjoyed eating lunch courtesy of Zaxby’s, watching a squirrel steal Dave’s crackers off the back of his cart, and delighting in the win of event sponsor, Wicked Weed! Hunter’s Sunday evening Baptism brought so many...
Management’s Restructuring
Management’s Restructuring Sermon by Rev. Brian Combs, 9/20/17 The Church long ago converted to the business model of ministry.  Instead of walking the streets to meet your neighbors, a demographic study is conducted; instead of the Spirit’s movement, a 7-step strategy is followed; instead of the pastor’s study, now a C.E.O.’s glassy corner office.  The...

"I first entered the doors of Haywood Street in summer 2011 with my daughter and a group of campers from CCC (Carolina Cross Connection). I sat and cried like a baby as I watched the fellow behind me dig in his backpack and drop a handful of coins into the offering plate - my world had been shattered, rearranged, and put back together in the most beautiful way never to be the same again."

"At first, it was difficult for me to make sense of everything I was experiencing. As time went on, I slipped into a space where I felt useful and grateful to be needed -- in the dishroom. There was a whole lot more going on, though, and I was encouraged to move out of my comfortable place. So I stretched a little and then a little more. The people I met were so much like me and again so different. I began to fully understand that the sameness and difference were the true design and I slowly began to live into that."
Susan Schott
"Every time I come to Haywood Street, something happens to me that I cannot rationally explain. My Spirit soars as I anticipate the day’s activities. I am excited to see familiar faces and glad to greet folks coming for the first time."
Dell Dillard
"I enjoy a variety ways of being involved at Haywood Street -- working in the garden, working in the clothing closet and serving meals, especially on holidays. Each offers a unique opportunity for connection with others...and connection is really what life is all about. We are all chosen. We are all loved."
Sascha Frowine
"Haywood Street welcomed me in with such warmth and heart... difficult to explain, except to say I am part of the family."

"Every week, I see small acts of love being shared in countless ways. Love is shared as Friends plan and prepare delicious food, beautifully arrange it on serving platters, and cheerfully dish up seconds and thirds. Love is shared in the setting of the tables with china dishes and fresh flowers that signify the dignity and importance of all who will share a meal. It is shared as Friends pass food and engage in conversations."
