Hi,

My name is Miguel D'Azevedo and I recently moved from Brazil to the U.S to do my M.div (fall) at the Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. Hope i can make friends here.

Welcome brother. Met some Brazilian families some weeks ago in the London Presbyterian church.

Welcome, Miguel! May the Lord bless your time at seminary.

May I recommend to you Greenville Presbyterian Church as your temporary home while you're in seminary? It is very close to the seminary, and you will be wonderfully cared for there. The pastor, Rob McCurley, is a gifted Bible teacher and a true servant of Christ. Also, he is a graduate of GPTS himself, and he is currently pursuing a ThM there.

Sure, but I would like to get to know more about the Presbyterian denominations in the U.S. before choosing a new home (church) for me and my family.

That's a wise move, brother. GPC, in particular, is a congregation of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing), which requires full subscription to the Westminster confession.

I'm not trying to dissuade you from looking into the other churches in the area as well. There are certainly a number of strong churches in Greenville.

There are going to be a lot of safe options around Greenville. ARP, PCA, an OPC and an FCC in the area. The Piedmont of the Carolinas has always been strong Presbyterian territory.

So worship style and church culture may end up being the driving forces.

I know you are not trying to dissuade me, and I appreciate your recommendation, I will visit the Church. Thank you for caring.

Also the preaching.

Would you mind explaining to me about the worship style and church culture in those denominations?

Since I'm new here, could you tell me more about your denomination?

I would suggest that the differences would be more at the congregational than at the denominational level, with the greatest range, of course, in the PCA.

What are you used to in worship in your home church?
