First-Time Guests

You are Welcome, First-Time Guests.

At Eastminster, first-time guests can expect to sense God’s presence, God’s power, and God’s purpose. You will also feel the joy and warmth of the Body of Christ. We hope you will join us!

Worship on Sundays:

  • Traditional Worship: 9am and 11:15am in the Sanctuary
  • Jubilee Contemporary Worship: 11:15am in Thompson Hall
  • Sunday School: 10am in Breakout Rooms

Eastminster has a hearing loop on the floor level of the Sanctuary for hearing aid users. If you do not have hearing aids but would like an assistive listening device, pick-up a FM Hearing Assisted System at our Welcome Center.

Where to Go for First-Time Guests

Eastminster is located at 3200 Trenholm Road Columbia, SC. When you arrive, look for the “Guest Parking” spaces along Trenholm Road, and you can park on surrounding streets also. As you walk into the church, our Welcome Team will meet you and show you where to find the Sanctuary, Thompson Hall, Breakout Rooms, or the Children’s Ministry. If you need anything throughout your time with us, stop by our Welcome Centers or ask anyone wearing a “Greeter” name tag.

Are you interested in learning more about the church? We invite first-time guests to learn more about what it means to be engaged in the life of Eastminster by attending our First Step Class. The First Step Class is a class for those who are interested in membership and learning more about the church. Classes are led by our ministers and staff, where they discuss who we are, our ministries, ways to get involved, and all Eastminster has to offer. At the end of First Step, those who are interested in membership will have an opportunity to meet with the Session and join the church.
