There are several ways that families with children can connect at Starmount. See below for a few of our regular events and check out our calendar for specific dates of upcoming events.
Breakfast on the Playground
Families with young children are encouraged to gather at the Starmount playground for scheduled family fellowship. Children have a chance to run around and play while building deep-lasting friendships. Parents can enjoy a cup of coffee and each other. The event goes on – rain or shine! – either on the playground off of Ashland Drive or in the Preschool’s Rainy Day Room.
This multi-week series occurs in the fall and spring. It is a time for people to gather and share a meal together and enrich an aspect of their lives. Programs have included group guitar lessons, bible study, computer training, featured speakers, and adult education. Each year Fellowship and Staff members collaborate on new and exciting ideas for each Wonderful Wednesday series.
Our first Wonderful Wednesday of the Fall season will be on September 13th and feature Linda Walbridge of the Orange Bee. She’ll be discussing the benefits of essential oils and local honey for mind, body and spiritual health.
All-Church Retreat to Montreat
Annually in the Fall, members of the Starmount Family and their friends make the trip to Montreat, North Carolina, and the Montreat Conference Center. Retreat participants are encouraged to reflect on and deepen their faith while enjoying the beauty of the mountains. It is a great weekend of reflection, fellowship, and fun!

Another fun family outing that Starmount Presbyterian looks forward to each year is the annual pilgrimage to NewBridge Bank Park to root on our hometown Greensboro Grasshoppers. Minor league baseball is a pleasure to watch, especially with members of your church family.
Each August, our church holds its annual church picnic on the Starmount grounds as a way to kick-off the program year. Following a worship focused on Back to School, we enjoy a cookout with fun family activities, as well as the opportunity to reconnect and catch up with old and new friends.
