500 Year Reformation Celebration at CPC!

John Calvin’s pulpit in Geneva

We are going to have a very special worship experience at 9:45AM on October 29, 2017.  That Sunday is the nearest Sunday to the 500 year anniversary of the Reformation,  which was on October 31, 1517.  We will be using the order and elements from John Calvin’s Geneva service, which almost always included communion.   We will have some special music, communion, and a Reformation message with historical notes and comments to help us as we make our way through this historic order of worship from the Reformation.

John Calvin typically opened by entering the sanctuary and positioning himself behind the communion table.  Then he would say, “Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” (Psalm 124:8)  A call to the confession of sins and an appropriate prayer followed.  In Strasbourg, after confession, he used an absolution, “To all those who thus repent and seek Jesus Christ for their salvation, I pronounce absolution in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.”

Come, experience the historic ways our spiritual forefathers/mothers worshiped God!  After the service and our Sunday Small Groups at 11:00AM, we will have a luncheon in the Family Life Center at around 12:00, Noon.

“Love Him, Love Them” Haitian Children’s Choir Coming to CPC Sept. 17th!

Join us on Sunday, September 17 at 6:00PM to celebrate God’s witness through the “Love Him, Love Them” Haitian Children’s Choir.  We will meet at Charleston Presbyterian Church in the Family Life Center at 1405 Miles Drive in West Ashley.   Please pray for these beautiful children and how we might support them.  A love offering will also be taken up.  Click on “Love Him, Love Them” Choir  to watch a sample of their music.

The Choir was born from tragedy.   All but 5 of these children lost everything in the Earthquake in 2010.  Most of them lost their complete family that day.  They found their way to the home of the Paul’s who were music teachers.

The Paul’s never intended on having an orphanage but out of necessity LifeSaver Orphanage was born. The Paul’s have truly been a Life Saver for these children. They don’t have much but what they have they have given, and keep giving, to these children. They are one of the happiest FAMILIES we have ever met!

The LHLT Choir toured the US from July to September 2016 and were well received by churches, community organizations, corporations and even professional sporting events. Funds raised during the tour help to support children in Haiti, Ukraine and US.

First Ash Wednesday Service at CPC

How will you recognize Lent and prepare for Resurrection Sunday?

Charleston Presbyterian Church will have its first Ash Wednesday Service on March 1, 2017 at 7:00PM.

Lent is a time to prepare for the celebration of Easter and to renew our life in the saving death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  We begin this holy season by acknowledging our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  We begin our journey to Easter with the sign of ashes, a Biblical symbol of mourning and penitence.  This ancient sign speaks of the fragility of human life, and marks the penitence of the community of faith.  We invite you, therefore, in the name of Christ, to observe a holy Lent by self-examination and repentance, by prayer and fasting, by works of love, and by reading and meditating on the Word of God, beginning with this service.

Bring your family and let’s begin this 40 day journey of Lent together.  Everyone will have the opportunity to come forward to receive the sign of repentance in ashes upon the back of the hand or forehead. Let us gather for the worship of our Savior and Lord and to dedicate our lives to Him.
