Welcome To Lutheran Church By The Lake

Lutheran Church by the Lake is located in McCormick, S.C. near Savannah Lakes Village and the beautiful Lake Thurmond…

As of January 17, 2021, Lutheran Church By The Lake has temporarily suspended in-person worship due to the increased numbers of COVID-19 in our state and county. We will monitor the local situation carefully and return to worship as soon as possible. The church office remains open M-F 8:30 A.M.-12:30 P.M., and small ministry groups may continue to meet at the church using all safety protocols in place. We strive to remain “Faithful, Safe, and Fruitful ” as we continue to serve God with love and faith as we go forward. 

DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR GOVERNOR,  modifications to our services have been made to provide for the safety and well-being of all who attend.

All who attend services will have their temperature taken (those with temps over 100.4 will not be permitted access inside) and will be required to wear a face mask until seated quietly in the pews. Distancing of 6′ will be enforced, and the use of hand sanitizer stations will be encouraged. Pews will be disinfected prior to each service in the sanctuary, and singing will be limited to only a limited number of choir members.

ALL PROTOCOLS are available to view in the form of video-clips under the tab “Galleries”- SANCTUARY OPENING, 2020 above.
