Mission trips may not often be associated with young church plants; in fact the mission trip is considered the remit of the established church that has at its disposal money and plenty of people. However, at Shem Creek Presbyterian, a church plant in Mt. Pleasant, SC, we believe that the church is universal as well as local. We have a desire to reach out to our community of Mt Pleasant and the greater Charleston area with the gospel, but also to encourage, serve and help churches across the country and in other nations around the world. We wish for this attitude to be part of the fabric of our church from the very beginning.
