Welcome to this gateway to our church community! Just as you are always welcome to browse through the information you find here, you are also welcome to come through our doors at 3005 Devine Street Columbia SC for worship, for any events that strike your interest, for care and counseling.
We seek to inspire our community with God's Word, to renew our discipleship through learning and prayer, and to empower our neighbor through service. Our doors are always open. We'd love to see you soon.
South Carolina Flood
We WILL have our Holy Communion service at 12:10 on Wednesday, October 7. Lunch will be on your own at a local restaurant, if you wish.
We WILL NOT have any other regularly scheduled events including all things musical, or confirmation.
Following Emergency Richland One Schedule, the CDC will be closed until further notice because of inability to observe City of Columbia Water-Boil Advisory.
Our Byron Road center currently does not have water.
Please stay tuned for more details.
After prayerful conversation, after evaluating the status of our Oktoberfest equipment and supplies at the church, and after conferring with quite a few team leaders, here is the status of Oktoberfest:
1) AT THIS TIME we are planning to proceed with the festival as planned. We will continue to evaluate every day.
2) We will only proceed with food prep if we are confident in our ability to SAFELY feed people. We plan to have beer no matter what.
3) We plan to make financial contributions to flood relief out of our profits.
4) We are trying to work out a way to feed first responders and/or shelter residents.
What you can do:
1) If you can SAFELY make it to the church, we will be cooking and working starting at 9am every day this week. We have cookie work, property clean up, equipment clean up and food prep.
2) The church, like the rest of the city, is under a boil water advisory. Please be sure to abide by any sanitation procedures.
