Building Community

One of our core values at MSPC is: Building Community.  We desire to grow our relationships with those around us.   This includes everything from sharing a meal or a coffee with someone after worship to leading Vacation Bible School with our mission partner in House of Hope, Haiti.


Children’s Christian Education

On Sundays, children in PreK 4 through 6th Grade are invited to the library after the Children’s Message during 11 am worship. We use this time to explore a Bible story and to enjoy each other’s company. This class is led by our Christian Educator and volunteers.


Miami Shores Presbyterian Church offers Vacation Bible School for a week every summer.  Youth volunteers help adults with the activities of the day.

Adult Christian Education

Each Sunday from 10:00 – 11:00 AM in the Library the class covers one to two chapters from the Bible. The class alternates between an Old Testament Book and a New Testament Book. Led by experienced teachers, no preparation for the class is necessary and participants are invited to attend any week. Our general format is to read and discuss the material several verses at a time, and all guests are invited to ask questions and participate in the conversation. An excellent introductory class for the inexperienced Bible reader, feel free to attend any week before our regular service at 11:00 AM.

So to begin this journey, this walk through the Bible, the class will begin with the Book of Ruth.

Then when Advent starts in 4 weeks, yes the Christmas season is only weeks away, the class will begin the Gospel of Luke with its story of the nativity of Jesus just as we all begin to prepare ourselves for our upcoming season of joy.

Feel free to join this class at any time. The class is held in the church library.

This class, facilitated by Rev. Diane Shoaf, will begin after Labor Day and end before Thanksgiving. Participants will use a process based on listening to one’s heart while reading and a listening circle for processing what we’ve read as a group.  The club will meet on Saturdays 9:00-10:30 am via ZOOM

Books To Be Discussed: “The Fire Next Time” by James Baldwin and “The Fire This Time” by Jesmyn Ward

To Participate: Contact Diane Shoaf at

Our weeks are busy and sometimes we forget to give ourselves time to connect with friends, meet new people, and just relax in the company of others to get out of that day-to-day hustle. Find at least an hour to relax, connect and enjoy other’s company! We felt encouraged to do this as we know we need it and felt perhaps others might need it as well. Come as you are, sit down, enjoy a snack or beverage, bring something of your own, and lower your shoulders – Everyone is welcome, bring family and friends!

Check the calendar for future gatherings.

Missions & Partnerships

Chapman Partnership provides comprehensive programs and services in collaboration with others that empower our residents with dignity and respect to overcome homelessness and achieve and maintain long-term self-sufficiency.

Our church financially supports one meal a month for its residents.  We also serve the meal that we provide.

We also collect gently used clothing for Chapman Partnership for all ages. You will find a collection box in the entryway to the Sanctuary.

For the past several years, MSPC has partnered with:

  • Miami Shores Elementary
  • Phyllis Ruth Miller Elementary
  • Hubert O. Sibley K-8 Academy

to provide support to the schools and families.

A fellowship of ladies that meet Wednesdays, from 9 a.m. to noon in Room 135 at church, making dolls and stuffed animals of all shapes and sizes. The dolls are distributed to needy persons in hospitals, nursing homes, orphanages, and at Christmas to families specified by Social Service Agencies. The soft dolls ministry produces almost 1000 dolls each year!

Pass It On, which was established over 35 years ago, is the only local all-volunteer food pantry in Miami-Dade County. Food is distributed on an emergency basis to those in need-many times while they await public assistance. On the first Sunday of every month, we collect canned and non-perishable food for Pass It On.  You can find a list of items on their website:  Donations can be placed on the Pantry Collection table in the church breezeway.   

The HOH started in 1956 as a medical home where children from all over Haiti could be treated for Tuberculosis (TB).  When children came to the HOH, not only did they find the physical/medical hope they needed, they also found the spiritual hope they needed, as well.

Today, the HOH still provides physical and medical hope to Haitian children with all types of illnesses, but focuses mainly on TB and severe malnutrition.  It continues to have as its main goal the Spiritual Hope which can only be found through faith in Jesus Christ.

Some of the kids who come through the HOH come from extreme family situations and they are unable to return. 

During the summer of 2000, the HOH began a program called Our Hope. This program enables these kids to stay at the HOH long-term. They receive an education, are trained professionally and most importantly learn about walking through life with Jesus. 

These kids learn responsibility by helping both in the HOH and through ministry opportunities in our community.  Our fervent desire for them is for them to become strong leaders sharing the Great News of the love of Jesus; wherever they go.

Café Justo is a coffee grower cooperative based in Salvador Urbina, Chiapas, Mexico – a ministry of Frontera de Cristo. They market a pure, organic coffee that is grown, harvested, and marketed in the spirit of justice.

Their goal is to employ members of the community, in the agricultural, production, and management/administrative roles, to create sustainable local business. This provides incentives for people to remain in their family lands.

Café Justo’s mission is to deliver the highest quality, organic, environmentally conscious, fresh-roasted coffee to customers at a price that is fair and just.


Prayer partners are available after worship for individual prayer needs.  If you need a special prayer after worship, you can find one of our partners by the bell tower outside of our Sanctuary, wearing a red carnation.  They would love to pray with you – be it a prayer of thanksgiving, adoration, confession, or intercession.
