Welcome to the SouthPark Campus.
At Church at Charlotte SouthPark, we have various pathways for connection into authentic community that will bring gospel hope and renewal to those around us. Through our community groups for adults, our student ministries, and our children’s ministries, there are opportunities for the whole family to connect. Join us for our weekend services on Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings.
Meet the Team

Our SouthPark campus ministry staff serves the congregation by developing authentic community and providing opportunities for individuals and families to bring gospel hope and renewal to our city and world.

Authentic community is a phrase we use a lot at Church at Charlotte. We believe that community is foundational to a proper understanding of the church. But it is hard. Authentic community—community that is honest, that celebrates the highs, and never allows the lows to keep us from pointing toward Jesus—is even harder.
Our Community Groups are where this authentic community can really begin. They are our primary pathway to engagement for adults and serve as a place to build relationships around God’s Word and around bringing gospel hope and renewal to our city and world. These groups may meet in homes, coffee shops, or on a lunch break, but their aim is simple: to flesh our church’s mission statement through small groups of people.
Interested in joining a Community Group? Let us know.
Beginning on January 14 and meeting on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. throughout the spring semester of 2018, Group Accelerator is a place for those who are looking to find community to come and explore what being an authentic community of Christ followers is all about. This Community Group will not permanently meet on Sunday mornings; instead we hope groups will form from Group Accelerator and begin meeting off campus. Let us know you’re coming to Group Accelerator.
No matter what stage of life you’re at, we all need encouragement and community. Women’s Ministry at Church at Charlotte seeks to connect you with other women who will serve as encouragers in your life through events, activities, and Bible studies that facilitate connection with other women and growth as Christ followers.

At Church at Charlotte, our Men’s Ministries take a variety of forms. From Bible Studies and prayer groups to Man Meals and service activities, all of them offer men a place to connect with other men in authentic community and the chance to work together to bring gospel hope and renewal to those they meet.

Truth-centered art can present a perspective on the truths of Scripture that opens our eyes to new ways of looking at familiar texts. Art is often better at asking questions than answering them; as we grow in authentic community, we see the arts as a place to wrestle with living out our faith on a daily basis. As our arts ministry serves the other ministries of our church and reaches out beyond our walls, we seek to serve both those who want to use their artistic and creative gifts and those who love truth and beauty.

Church at Charlotte provides a variety of communities and ministries for those in need of support from the body of Christ. In addition, some of these areas are avenues for our congregation to live out the Church mission by serving one another. From support for caregivers to support for those facing life crises and transitions, there are groups for a variety of needs. Learn More.
For sixth, seventh, and eighth graders, Launch offers biblical teaching in a group setting on Sundays (11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.) as well as midweek small group discussion (Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 p.m.).

United, our high school ministry, meets on Sunday mornings from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. and Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00 p.m. (during the school year). United offers students large-group teaching on Sunday mornings and engages them in worship, teaching and small group discussion on Sunday evenings. Day trips, fun nights, retreats, and mission trips are also part of United’s annual calendar.
We provide nursery, preschool, and elementary classes on Sunday mornings during our 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. services. In the Saturday evening Café Live service, there are no children’s classes offered and children are welcome to attend the service with their parents.
First Time Guests
If it is your first time joining us, please visit our Kids Welcome Center, located behind the fireplace in the Café Lobby (across the Courtyard from the Worship Center). Our Welcome Team will help you check in your children, print security tags, and direct you to the right classroom.
We believe that even the youngest of children can begin to understand that God exists and that He cares for them. Our nursery caregivers provide a safe and nurturing environment where your infants and toddlers receive their First Look at God.
Our preschool ministry is dedicated to teaching your kids God’s Word through Bible-based learning activities and guided playtime. Preschool classes are for two year olds through Kindergarteners (placement determined by child’s age as of August 31).
On Sundays, first through fifth graders are invited to explore God’s word in our Connect classes at 9:30 a.m. in gender and age-specific classes and to participate in large group high-energy worship, drama, and teaching in Celebrate during the 11:00 a.m. hour. Elementary kids study the Bible and develop relationships with their peers and adult volunteers. Learn more about Elementary Classes and Programs.
