Outreach

Through partnerships in Charlotte and around the world we respond to Jesus’ invitation to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves. Outreach helps us fall in love with God’s world and God’s people.

Why Outreach?

Myers Park Presbyterian has long heard God’s call to grow in faith, to go and make disciples and to experience God at work – mending brokenness in the world and within us through service and mission.

One of the clearest ways we live out our calling as disciples is by responding to Jesus’ invitation, his mandate, given in John 13: 34-35 “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”

In the early church, as the community struggled to understand how best to live out their lives as followers of Jesus, Paul reminds them in the midst of a dispute that “knowledge puffs up, but love builds up” (I Corinthians 8:1).

So with the Biblical mandate to live out a life of sacrificial love and appreciating Myers Park legacy of both service to and growth as a community, our efforts can be characterized and guided by Love Builds Up… a Child, a Homea Neighborhood, and the World.
