South Plains Presbyterian Church is a church that welcomes all God’s children. We seek to become more faithful disciples by studying God’s word, by discussing how these ancient texts speak to the heart of 21st-century issues, and through prayer.
As a strong family of faithful believers in God’s grace, love, and faithfulness, and in Jesus’ call to love one another, we reach out to our community to share God’s love.
Each year we partner with two local churches – an Episcopal church and an African American Baptist church to sponsor a four-day Family Vacation Bible School.
Our church family members are active in the surrounding communities. They participate in such programs as Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, in local food banks, Crop Walks, as well as organize a weekly worship program for an assisted living facility in Charlottesville.
A doctor in our church, a pediatric anesthesiologist, travels to South America annually as part of a mission to provide free medical care to needy children in Bolivia. In addition, we have a “baby cap ministry,” which provides caps for infants both locally, nationally, and globally. We support a missionary doing God’s work in Haiti.
Of special note is South Plains’ prayer quilt ministry. A number of talented seamstresses and quilters produce beautiful prayer quilts for members, their families, and even strangers when they face wilderness wanderings in health, heart, or spirit. A card and many prayers accompany each quilt to its destination.
We are a community that cares – for God, for each other and our neighbors. We help each other through medical, spiritual, and emotional issues, providing meals, transportation, emotional support, and prayer. We strive to be God’s hands and feet in the world.
In Christ’s service,
