Myers Park Presbyterian Church has long heard God’s call to grow in faith, to go and make disciples, and to experience God at work through service and mission. We respond to Jesus’s invitation to love God and love our neighbor as ourselves by sharing our time, talent, and treasure, together with our ministry partners in Charlotte and around the world. Please join Myers Park Presbyterian Church’s Outreach Ministry as we explore how Love Builds Up… a Family, a Home, and the World.
MPPC’s Welcome Ministry Events
Thank you to the Welcome Ministry volunteers who hosted two events in March showing love and support to refugee families resettling in Charlotte. Through a partnership with CMS, we were able to host more than 150 Afghans and 19 community partners at the Outreach Center for an afternoon filled with fellowship, kids activities, a traditional Halal meal, and access to information about community resources. A few days later our members joined together with Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency to furnish and setup an apartment for a Syrian family arriving from a refugee camp in Jordan this week. We are grateful for the generosity and hospitality shown by so many of our disciples and wish a warm welcome to all of our new neighbors. For information about getting involved with the Welcome Ministry, please contact MPPC member Gail Fischer.
We are so pleased to share and celebrate with our CROSS Director, Erika Funk, receiving the North Carolina Governor’s Volunteer Service Award. Share in the surprise by watching the presentation here.
In the News…
As we know inflation is effecting us all, especially our neighbors. This Charlotte Observer article has insight from two of our local partner’s leaders Tina Postel (Loaves and Fishes/Friendship Trays) and Carol Hardison (Crisis Assistance Ministry).
