I’m New

Welcome! We’re glad you’ve decided to check out Myers Park Presbyterian Church. It’s not always the easiest thing to visit a church for the first time, but we hope you’ll feel comfortable and welcomed.

In short: We’re an inclusive, spirit-filled community of faith at work in Charlotte, NC and around the world.

 

What type of church is this?

Myers Park Presbyterian is a Christian church affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). We are committed to affirming the dignity and humanity of every person and strive to create a welcoming environment for all God’s children.

 

What is worship 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. Bible scripture verses are read aloud, some folks choose follow along in the bibles in they pews, others experience the word of God best by listening. 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, so 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 you may have

 

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.

Getting Involved

Alright, we like where this is going! Worshipping God is the primary way we live out our faith, and there are many opportunities to go beyond.

  • Consider joining the church through a New Member Class. These classes take place quarterly on Sunday mornings. Look for the next class on the front of the bulletin, or contact Betsy Gantt for the next class date and time.
  • Attend one of the many Sunday morning Discipleship Classes, which cover a variety of topics and take place at 9:45 a.m. on Sundays.
