Most people know us as "the little white church on the hill". You may also recognize us from the life-size Nativity scene we set up around Christmas time.
Providence Lutheran Church was established in 1862 in Lexington, South Carolina. Providence is a congregation within the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. As a part of the ELCA, our faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ. This gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world. We are a church that is always being made new, and at the same time, deeply rooted in Scripture, Lutheran theology, and Lutheran confessions. We are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.
Our congregation has a rich history which is rooted in a vibrant, diverse community. It’s through these roots that the Holy Spirit guides and nourishes us, so that we can be a church that is both resilient and always evolving. We welcome you to join this community of faith, regardless of your age, race, gender, life experience, complexities, or questions. You have a unique story that can only add to the fullness of the larger story that makes up the church. There is a place for you here!
