At Worship
Children's church is offered for children ages 2 to 5 and takes place after the children's sermon. The children return for the distribution of Holy Communion. Small children are welcome in worship.

If you're new in town, we’d love to show you around. There is much to see and do, and our town is conveniently located in the middle of it all! Our community (the Columbia, SC area) is home to every amenity you’d expect of a major metropolitan area, not to mention our spectacular 50,000 acre Lake Murray and Riverbanks Zoo & Gardens.

Our town is also just a couple of hours from South Carolina's world-famous beaches and the serenity of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Getting to either area is no problem. Three interstate highways intersect here — I-20, I-26 and I-77, with I-85 and I-95 just an hour's drive away.

More than 784,000 people call this area their home, a number expected to increase to one million by 2025.
