NEW! Spoon It Up Offering

to benefit the Men's Shelter of Charlotte

Our Missions-Outreach Ministry is introducing a new monthly offering: Spoon It Up.

This offering will be received on the last Sunday of each month, and will provide funds to feed our neighbors through the Men's Shelter of Charlotte.


NEW! Tutoring Opportunities

McAlpine Elementary

South Mecklenburg Presbyterian began meeting twenty-five years ago at

McAlpine Elementary. This coming school year, we will engage in a number

of programs to help McAlpine students and staff.

One of these opportunities is tutoring. You don’t need extensive training. If you read to your children or grandchildren, you can tutor. The time

commitment is one hour a week. It is not an exaggeration to say that your

attention can transform a child’s life.

Interested? Contact Tom Strohl, 704.591.2147/tstrohl8013@att.net.

Pencils for Haiti Results

OFCB Ministries, Bayonnais, Haiti

From mid-July to early August, Emily Sonda, an 11-year old member of SMPC, inspired all of us to donate pencils, sharpeners, and erasers for the Haitian children of OFCB, the school we support in Bayonnais.

After Emily sorted and packed the items into suitcases, they were transported to Haiti in mid-October. OFCB staff then distributed the school tools to each of the 2,500 children on OFCB’s three campuses.

Thanks again to Emily for her inspiration and our SMPC congregation for their generous hearts. Her dreams and everyone’s donations have made so many children happy and grateful. They now have something special of their very own to help them in school this year!
