About: Our Mission

A Lighthouse Congregation

In 2023, Lee Road UMC went through an extensive months-long discernment process of our own design with five congregational meetings and by consensus model decided to remain an United Methodist congregation in full connection with the SC Annual Conference AND to become a "Lighthouse Congregation" welcoming everyone with full inclusion into the life and mission of our church, regardless of race, age, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, or any other distinction.  All persons are welcome, loved, and respected for who they are and their God-given gifts to serve the Lord Jesus.

Lee Road United Methodist Church celebrated its 65th Anniversary in 2023.  Reverend and Mrs. D. W. Smith held the first meeting with nine persons in their Taylors home on February 9, 1958.  Next would come a gathering in a store on the corner of Elberta Street and East Lee Road.  Outgrowing the storefront, our founders broke ground for a new church on December 5, 1958 in a former peach orchard.  From these humble beginnings, God has blessed "The Servant Church" known for its rich and compassionate ministries serving the local, state, national, and globe in the Methodist spirit of Reverend John Wesley's comment, "The world is my parish."  In 2019, a contemporary service was added after a major renovation of the former gym that is today called "The Bridge at Lee Road."  In 2023, the congregation decided via consensus to remain United Methodist and to become a "Lighthouse Congregation" welcoming and connecting all persons to Jesus Christ.  We are excited about what God has in store for us! 

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29:11)
