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.
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 services like?
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.
