Where is Starmount Presbyterian Church located?

We are at 3501 West Market Street. The church doors are accessed by coming in from the parking lot once you take the W. Market Street driveway. Look for large glass doors. On Sunday mornings, there are people standing outside in the parking lot and outside the sanctuary to greet you and help you find anything you might need such as finding the nursery or a fresh cup of coffee.


What is the size of your congregation?

Starmount Presbyterian Church has approximately 380 members of all ages and ethnicities who live throughout Greensboro and Guilford County.


How would you describe the worship services? Are they traditional, contemporary or somewhere in between?

Our worship services are great times of celebration in which we seek to uplift and magnify the name of our God while being inspired and encouraged to live for Him. Our pastors preach a relevant message from God’s Word and frequently follow the Revised Common Lectionary which are taken from The New Revised Standard Version Translation of The Bible. The service music is a unique blend of music designed to appeal to all styles and tastes. For more information about Worship click here.


How should I dress for worship services at Starmount?

Some people wear shorts and sandals, and others feel comfortable in coats and ties. Many women wear casual attire, and some wear dresses or suits. Most clothing is casual, but everyone feels comfortable in wearing whatever they enjoy.


Is childcare provided during worship?

Yes! We provide professional childcare during worship for children ages birth to 2 years. Children of any age are invited into worship. Following the Children’s Message, children ages 3 to 2nd grade may remain in Worship or go to an age-appropriate Sunday School class. If children choose to remain in worship, we provide a worship bag with quiet activities. Professional childcare is also available for most activities and programs that Starmount provides.


Starmount is a congregation of the PC(USA). What does that mean?

We are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA). Presbyterians are Christ-followers first and share most beliefs with other Christian denominations; Presbyterians are distinctive in two major ways: they adhere to a pattern of religious thought known as reformed theology and a form of government that stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members. The local church governing body of which SPC is a part is Salem Presbytery.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), with denominational offices in Louisville, Kentucky, has approximately 1.6 million members, nearly 10,000 congregations, and 14,000 ordained and active ministers. Our denomination ordains all who are called by God regardless of gender or sexual orientation. For more information about PC(U.S.A) click here.


What programs do you offer?

It is our desire to offer a well-rounded Christian program for the entire family. We offer many programs that are designed to help people know Christ and grow in faith. During worship, there is a program for children who stay in church until after the children’s message. Sunday School is for all age groups at 9 a.m. There are many other programs and opportunities for Christian fellowship including dinners, small group meetings, fellowship, Starmount Friends, missions and Presbyterian Women.


I have children in preschool, elementary, middle school, or high school. Are there programs for these age groups?

Absolutely! Age-specific programs are available for all children of the church. Sunday School classes are divided by grades. Programs outside of Sunday School are regularly scheduled. For more information about children and family activities, please click here .

Starmount has been known for many years for its strong youth program. We have outstanding leaders and the church is committed to providing experiences for the youth that will help them make good choices as they reach adulthood. Our youth meet weekly, participate in mission trips, take summer mountain retreats, and are generally very active throughout the year. For more information about youth activities, please click here .


I am a college student or young professional. Are there programs for me?

We have regularly scheduled activities that Starmount provides for young adults, young professionals, and families with young children. Starmount also supports ministry programs with UKirk Greensboro, its partner in ministry, which is a college and young adult ministry supporting college and graduate students from UNCG, Greensboro College, Guilford College, and GTCC. For more information about any of these programs and activities, please click here or contact Pastor Kathryn .


Does Starmount participate in mission projects and activities?

Starmount is very passionate about supporting missions both locally, nationally, and internationally. More than 30% of Starmount’s annual budget supports these projects and programs. For more information about the missions that Starmount supports, please click here.


Do you have a weekday preschool program?

Yes! Starmount Preschool has been a mission and ministry of Starmount Presbyterian Church, serving the Greensboro community for over 50 years. You do not have to be a member of Starmount Presbyterian Church for your children to participate in the preschool program. Many preschool families also make Starmount Presbyterian their church home.

What is required for membership at Starmount?

At Starmount, there is no pressure to join the congregation officially as a member. Many people make that commitment after they have developed relationships in the church and express their desire to become an official part of the church family. You can always learn more information about the church, its ministries, and its activities by attending one of Starmount’s regularly scheduled Visitor Receptions. When you have come to that place of deciding to join, there are regularly scheduled new members classes that you can attend.


When are church offices open?

Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
