Sunday Services

Worshipping at Colony Lutheran Church is family-friendly.

We offer Holy Communion on the first Sunday of the month and occasional festival Sundays.

There is no dress code. Some people wear suit jackets and ties, others wear blue jeans. Jesus wore a long robe, so who are we judge?

We are a liturgical church, meaning portions of our service are part of the ancient tradition passed down from the early church.

As Lutherans, we talk a lot about “grace.” For Lutherans, God’s grace is the divine mercy, love, and forgiveness we are offered daily. It cannot be earned or bought. We do not deserve it in any way and yet it is given to us daily.

Join us, we would love to have you.

About Us

Members of St. Luke’s and St. Paul’s Lutheran churches in Prosperity and Pomaria founded this congregation in 1845 as a “colony” located halfway between their former churches. Its founding pastor was Rev. William Berley. The first Colony church was built in 1846 using wood from the old St. Luke’s church. Congregants

joined the South Carolina Synod on March 2, 1848.

By the early 1850s, Colony members began using the land just NW of the church as a cemetery. A second frame church was constructed here c.1884. In 1957, it was replaced by a brick Gothic Revival sanctuary, where congregants still worship. A year later, Colony called its first full- time pastor, having previously been part of Beth Eden parish. Colony’s fellowship hall was built in 2000.

Colony is a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the largest Lutheran denomination in the United States.
