There was dancing, vocal performances, piano, and other instrumental performances. There was storytelling, lighthearted moments and also spiritual testimonies and the singing of hymns and Gospel songs. We even had a name drawn for a free portrait by a well-known, talented artist who graciously donated her talent to her church!
Keep tuned to this website and church calendar to find additional opportunities for fellowship, ministry, and mission at CPC!

“What’s in the bag?”
Celebrating the Lord’s Supper in a way similar to the way Jesus celebrated with His disciples, we shall all be gathered around tables and celebrate Communion. The themes of the service will be servanthood, love, and treating one another as more important than ourselves. The service will have a message, beautiful music, hymns, and a time of sharing with one another. We welcome you to join us in worship this Thursday evening at 7PM in the Family Life Center at Charleston Presbyterian Church located at 1405 Miles Drive, Charleston, SC 29407 (843)437-8219
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.
An Open Community Easter Egg Hunt will be held for children and their families on Saturday, April 8 at 10:00AM. It will be followed by a light lunch and games. The grounds and pavilion will be designated by age groups so that all the children will have an equal opportunity to find the eggs. The Easter Egg Hunt has long been a tradition for many American families. CPC would like to help all our local families celebrate the resurrection of Christ by offering this fun-filled and memorable event.
The time we invest in our children on this morning can produce fond memories they may remember for years. Can you remember your childhood and your fond memories of friends and family around Easter? Some of us can even remember a childhood Easter Egg Hunt! We hope to see you at 10:00AM on Saturday, April 8th.
Merry Christmas! This year CPC is offering a Nine Lessons and Carols service on Christmas Eve at 4:00PM. This is the first year we have used this beautiful service, which tells the Christmas story alternating with Christmas Carols. The Chancel Choir, directed by Jeannie Martin, will lead the music throughout. We will also have a Young at Heart message and a gift for all the children. The service begins at 4:00PM, which allows families enough time to return home for their own family traditions on Christmas Eve. Come early for a good seat! Let us add to the deepening of our child’s/grandchild’s understanding and appreciation of Christmas by bringing them to this inspiring Christmas Eve service. It will be a wonderful experience for them and for all of us!
Then on Christmas Day, we invite you and your family to keep Christ at the center of Christmas through a special worship service and Rocking Chair Message at 9:45AM. Dr. Bland will be sharing poignant memories and lessons from the Scriptures along with a lilting instrumental backdrop of Christmas Carols especially chosen to match each point. What a wonderful Christmas experience to enjoy and remember for years to come! There will also be another special time during the worship service of sharing a message with our children/grandchildren. We have so very few opportunities these days to make a lasting impression on our youth. This is a profound opportunity to do so!
We hope to see you and your family at CPC to make Christmas, 2016 even more special.
