Welcome! We are so glad you found us online and are considering a visit with us! Uptown Church has some of the most loving people you will meet. This love comes from a vibrant, growing relationship with Jesus Christ that extends to all people. You will find a warm welcome when visiting our church! No matter where you are, who you are, and what you've done, you are never beyond the reach of God's grace. If you are planning on visiting with us, here is some information we believe will be helpful in answering some questions you may have before you arrive.
What is the service time? Sundays at 10:30 AM
Where do you meet? We meet on the campus of the Citadel in downtown Charleston. The address of the Citadel is 171 Moultrie St, Charleston, SC 29409. Our service is held in the Mark Clark Hall, on the second floor, in room 230 (just follow the signs and you will be greeted and directed by our welcome team!). There is an elevator as well as a wheelchair ramp available if needed.
Why do you meet on the campus of the Citadel? As a new church plant, we have not yet grown to the stage of owning our own building. We have strategically chosen to rent a space on the campus of the Citadel due to its central location in Wagener Terrace and safe environment.
Where do I park? There is visitor parking in front of Mark Clark Hall as well as a parking lot across the street at Hampton Park. What is there for kids? During Sunday services, we provide childcare for newborns through 4 years of age. We also provide activities for children ages 5 and up during the service.
What is a Sunday service like? Our church will worship through music, prayer, giving, and the preaching of God's word. The music often contains great hymns of history while blending in some of the newer praise music of today. Messages are clear, applicable to life, and come straight from the Bible.
What do I wear? Clothes. Seriously. There is no "dress code" for church. You will discover that our church family dresses in a range from comfort, to casual, to formal. God is interested in your heart more than He is what you are wearing.
Will you ask me to stand up in front of the church since I am a visitor? Some churches may have a time where they ask visitors to stand and be recognized. We don't do that. Our desire is for you to feel welcome, not to be singled out. The only thing we request is that you fill out a visitor card on the coffee table outside of the worship room so we can have a record of your visit.
