Our sign for boaters

Celebrating 57 years of lake ministry!

Worship by the lake at Clarks Hill (Lake Thurmond) 8:45 am every Sunday in June, July, and August

We do have lake access for recreational use as well.

COVID Update: As we are a leased facility under the Army Corps of Engineers, we must continue to follow the federal mandates of mask wearing and social distancing indoors and outdoors at our lake property except where you can maintain 6′ of physical distance between households. Official Memorandum:

As per normal procedure, members with a key are welcome to enjoy the property for day use at any time. If you need a key, contact the church. If you have lost your key, we appreciate a $5 donation for a new one. The key unlocks the gate and the men and women’s bathrooms in the red building. If you decide to camp or rent the pavilion or lodge, please check the calendar and then make your request to the church by email or phone 706-724-9641. Although pavilion or lodge may be rented, other church members may still visit the property. Please, everyone follow guidelines and check-in/check-out procedures (e.g. the water is turned on and off with each visit) plus new guidelines limiting size of groups, social distancing. Always let us know if you see a problem.
