History
Steele Creek Presbyterian Church was organized in 1760 and celebrated its 250th anniversary in 2010. The first Sanctuary was a small log cabin located in what is the present-day cemetery.  It is the second oldest church in Mecklenburg County and was the largest rural Presbyterian Church in the country during the mid-twentieth century.


Many changes have occurred over the years, but the church always adjusted to the times and community needs.

Five houses of worship have served the congregation, and the present Sanctuary was dedicated on April 17, 1889. It is built of bricks handmade from materials in the surrounding area. Both the Sanctuary and Cemetery are recognized as Historical Landmarks. Over the years, three educational building additions were constructed as part of our growth.

In 1988, a Family Life Building with Activity Center, Chapel and multipurpose rooms was completed. Recently, the Family Life Center was renamed after Rev. Lewis W. Bledsoe, the longest serving pastor from 1972-2001. Also, the Chapel was renamed to honor Price H. Gwynn, III, a member of Steele Creek, who served as Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA in 1990-91. The buildings of this church serve the community daily.

The Steele Creek congregation has focused upon developing programs and ministries which address the needs of individuals and groups – serving children, nurturing families, building up the community and enriching the life of Faith. A Child Development Center operates daily providing care and educational opportunities for the children of the community.
