in worship, study, and service;
loving and supporting one another
as we join God’s transforming work
in our city and in the world.

Sunday Mornings

You’re invited. Always.

Sunday Worship is our opportunity to celebrate our connection not only to the body of Christ that is the church, but to God. Glorifying and enjoying God is our highest calling, and worship is the central place we do this.

People arrive at churches for many reasons and come with varied levels of desire for engagement and participation. Some look to “dive right in” and get involved as much as possible. Others prefer to take their time and get to know the rhythms of the church before they plug into anything in particular. We want to honor and accommodate your call no matter where you find yourself on that spectrum.

“You are welcome to come join us in celebrating what has been lost and found. We will eat bread and drink wine and rejoice! We will be singing, laughing, hugging, storytelling, and having a blast.” Camilla Hart

Visiting Myers Park Pres

What to Expect

First of all, welcome! It’s not always the easiest or most comfortable thing to visit a church for the first time. In short: We’re an inclusive, spirit-filled community of faith at work in Charlotte, NC and around the world.

What are sevices like?

We have two concurrent services each Sunday: Traditional & Celebrate Worship. Both take place at 8:45 & 11 a.m. throughout the school year, and at 10 a.m. during the summer months.

Traditional worship is just that – a reformed protestant service featuring hymns, prayer, scripture reading, and a sermon. Hymns are sung out of the red hymnbooks available in each pew. The specific songs are listed in the bulletin you’ll be handed on the way in. This service takes place in the Sanctuary and lasts for one hour.

Celebrate Worship is a more contemporary service, led by a band and featuring Christian praise music, prayer, scripture reading, and a sermon. We’ll have the words to the music on the screen, feel free to sing as much as you feel comfortable. This service takes place in Oxford Hall and lasts for one hour.

Visitors won’t be singled out or made to feel uncomfortable in any way. There’s no altar call. Our pastors and church leaders are available at the doors after services to greet visitors and answer any questions.

What about my kids?

Childcare is available every Sunday! Check with an usher at the door if you’re curious. Children are welcomed in each worship service as well. There are worship bags which include crayons and drawing sheets, and there is a children’s moment during which young people are invited to the front to hear a short message tailored to them.

What should I wear?

Wear what you feel comfortable in! The Traditional service tends to see folks a little more dressed up. Some wear suits while others have open collars and no tie. The Celebrate service is casual. We hope you’ll feel comfortable however you arrive.

History

Nearly a century ago, a small group of neighbors in the Myers Park neighborhood knocked on doors to invite residents to join a new congregation. They organized themselves into existence and petitioned the Presbytery to issue a charter to establish Myers Park Presbyterian Church in 1926. Today, it is one of the largest churches in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). This church has united as disciples of Christ; the greater the challenge, the better.

Through God, MPPC has supported the creation of Selwyn Avenue and Trinity Presbyterian Churches, helped incubate The Learning Collaborative, launched Crossroads Corporation, and affirmed the work of countless organizations in Charlotte and around the world. We put our feet to our faith and take pride in the things we do with God’s help.
