Church Services On Lake Murray

What better than to attend Church On Lake Murray (lakeside in an outdoor shelter) and then enjoy a Sunday on the Lake?
Yes, it's possible thanks to the wonderful Lakeshore Services ministry of Macedonia Evangelical Lutheran Church located near Prosperity, S.C.    The Sunday morning lakeshore service began in 1970 under the direction of Rev. Clarence L. Richardson and has continued to this day.

Worshippers come by boat, car, or on foot to sit beneath the shady trees along the beautiful waterfront.   The lakeshore service starts promptly at 8:30 a.m. and runs from May 20th thru September 16th (2012).   We have attended previously and afterwards headed over to Buffalo Creek Grill & Marina for their Sunday morning breakfast buffet.  

Macedonia Evangelical Lutheran Church is located near Dreher Island State Park at: 49 Macedonia Church Road (Prosperity, SC)
