We know it’s not easy to show up at a church for the first time so if you decide to visit King’s Church, here’s some information that will help you feel welcome without feeling overwhelmed. If you do not see your question answered here, please just give us a call and let us know how we can serve you.
WHERE TO FIND US
We meet every Sunday morning at Palmetto Place at 10 a.m.6230 St. Andrews Rd., Columbia, SC 29212
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Come as you are and just be comfortable. Seriously… we are here for you, no matter how you're dressed. Some people wear ties, others wear T-shirts. You won’t feel out of place either way.
WHAT’S THE MUSIC LIKE?
We always start off our service by first welcoming everyone and then singing a few songs. We usually have a keyboard, vocals, an occasional guitar, and light percussion. If you have been in church before, you may recognize some of the music. We sing some old songs that have been sung by Christians for centuries and some newer songs we hope Christians will be singing centuries from now.
IS THERE SOMETHING FOR MY KIDS?
Yes! We have a nursery for infants and classroom for walkers up to 4 year olds. Your children will learn Bible stories and songs during the worship service. Of course, you are free to keep your children in the service with you if that makes you more comfortable. If you want your children to participate in our nursery on Sunday, just let someone know when you walk in and we'll take you over and get you all checked in.
NOTE: We take caring for your children VERY seriously. We run a thorough background check on ALL of our nursery volunteers annually and require them to complete a child abuse awareness training. You cannot be too careful these days and we spare no expense to keep our children and yours safe.
WILL YOU ASK ME TO GIVE YOU ANY MONEY?
Absolutely not. You are our guest and we want you to receive what God gives freely. There is an offering time during the service because we believe that God has given us everything we need to live and it is an opportunity for those who are a part of King’s Church to worship God through our offerings. So please do not feel obligated to put money in the plate just because it comes by.
WHAT ABOUT COVID & SOCIAL DISTANCING?
We are committed to gathering together for worship on the Lord's Day so we are meeting publicly and have been for some time now. We realize some people may be at greater risk of contracting the virus and ask that if you are not feeling well, please stay home. When you come in, you will grab a chair or chairs for you and your family and set them up wherever you feel comfortable. Masks are available and optional. If you are unable to attend in person, we are temporarily providing a livestream option which you can find on our Facebook page Sunday morning at 10 am EST.
We look forward to meeting you! See you Sunday?
