-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Where do I park?
Park in one of our visitor parking spots reserved just for you. These parking spots are located directly across from the main doors to our sanctuary. Enter our property through the main driveway off of Blakeney Heath Road; turn left before you get to the circle.

Are visitors welcome at any service or activity?
Yes! SMPC welcomes guests to Sunday worship and many programs throughout the week. With the church's location in fast-growing south Charlotte, SMPC often gets the privilege of saying hello to newcomers.

As a visitor, will I need to do anything special?
No. Guests often like to check out SMPC without making a big splash. The church does not ask for anyone to identify themselves. SMPC won't contact you unless you would like to share your information.

What should I wear?
SMPC is by no means a dressy church. Men wear everything from jackets and ties to slacks and sports shirts. Women wear everything from dresses to slacks and casual shirts.

What about children?
SMPC provides secure, nurturing care for children during all worship services. A nursery is available for infants through age 3 during the 10:10 a.m. worship service only.  Our all-paid nursery staff have completed SMPC Children, Youth, Volunteers and Staff Protection Policy training.
