Welcome to First Presbyterian Church of Charlotte

Life is busy and there’s a lot competing for your time.

Whether it’s youth sports, work obligations, or one of a hundred other things, it’s hard to find time to fit anything else in your schedule. And in a city like Charlotte where we’re all spread out – it almost feels impossible to connect with each other throughout the week.

At First Presbyterian, we strongly believe that life-giving relationships are worth investing in. In our culture today, it’s normal to feel disconnected from other people and even disconnected in your faith. When that happens, there’s a piece deep inside you that’s left unfulfilled and lacking meaning.

But what if you didn’t have to feel that way? What if you could find a deeper meaning in life, faith, and the world around you?

Event Spotlight

Restoring Balance and Healing Divides

October 17 | 5-6:30 p.m. | Wood Fellowship Hall

Philanthropy means “the love for humankind,” but it has not been consistently and evenly kind to all humans. Despite the philanthropic industry’s commendable investments, in many cases its methods have mirrored oppressive colonial behavior. How can we shift philanthropy toward social reconciliation and healing if the cornerstones have been exploitation, extraction, and control? Drawing from Native traditions, Villanueva empowers individuals and institutions to begin to repair the damage through his “Seven Steps to Healing” and to restore balance to the system. Individual wholeness requires mutual wholeness. Whether or not you come from a place of wealth as traditionally defined, consider what legacy you will leave behind.
