Our Past and Future:
About 165 years ago, an inspired group of believers built a church community for their small town. Today, the congregation of Shelby Presbyterian Church continues to grow the vision and value of that dedicated group of Presbyterians shining a light for all who seek a meaningful relationship with God.
In 1849 the Presbyterian services were held in the Cleveland County Courthouse. In 1858 our church was organized by the Concord Presbytery and our first building was completed in 1875.
Today, Shelby Presbyterian is a vibrant place of faith and worship that continues to transform its members, the community, and the world. By embracing the traditions of our past, we are excited about our future journey as a church, and we will faithfully follow where God leads.
