SERVING OUR COMMUNITY

South Mecklenburg Presbyterian Church offers many opportunities to serve in our community.  Hunger, homelessness, health, and education are near to the heart of God and our church.  Interested in sharing your time with our ministries?  Contact Shelby Ullman, Chair of Missions-Outreach Ministry, shelby.ullman@gmail.com.

The Alternative Gift Market, held during Advent, is a wonderful opportunity for year-end giving, and for purchasing gifts honoring family and friends in the form of contributions to worthy local and global missions.

Shelter Ministry

FOURTH SUNDAY EACH MONTH

 

We collect a special offering that goes to the Men's Shelter of Charlotte to provide hunger relief. Each $500 we raise with The Spoon It Up offering provides a meal, and frees up funds that can help local men find jobs and permanent housing.

 

As we collect the offering on the fourth Sunday of every month, we are asking for six youth volunteers to walk with the Ushers and help with the collection. Click here to sign up!
