Join Us In-Person or Online for Worship

Due to Covid-19, our church is holding in-person and virtual worship services. Please scroll down to the videos below to watch our services online.

Our worship services currently are at 8:30am and 11:00am on Sundays! Seating is limited in the sanctuary to allow for physical distancing of non-family groups, and there will be overflow seating in the gym (yes, we have upgraded our video and audio capabilities there!). Ushers will guide congregants to available seating or advise if the sanctuary is full to capacity. MASKS ARE REQUIRED OF ALL PARTICIPANTS except while eating or drinking.  Our services will continue to be recorded and presented online for those who prefer that option. In addition to being streamed live and via Facebook live, our services remain available to be watched later.

Since 9-15-20, while still in Phase 2 of our reopening plan, JIPC has broader options for public gatherings. We are now able to hold gatherings based on occupancy with those who are willing to physical distance, wear masks, and keep attendance rolls. We still have limited meeting spaces available. If you would like to schedule space, please contact the church office. JIPC’s Reopening Task Force is monitoring the SCDHEC, Charleston County, and public health recommendations and will advise staff and Session of adjustments as needed. We pray for all those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Church family and friends- Following is the adopted full policy guiding and governing our return to in-person meetings both on and off-campus. Much prayerful work has gone into this and the work of the entire task group is deeply appreciated. Please contact the church or one of our pastors to help with any questions you may have. The JIPC Reopening Task Force will continue to monitor the public health situation closely.

Our Mission

Our mission at James Island Presbyterian Church is to have Every Member in Ministry.
Our Vision Statement: “DISCOVERING who I am in Christ; in the Church; and in Service to the World.”
Living into our Vision statement is multi-faceted.

The beginning of the Christian journey is establishing a personal relationship, by grace through faith, in Jesus Christ. Each of us is unique in the eyes of God and possess certain strengths to build up the body of Christ and to grow in our personal faith. Each new member is invited to take the online Strengths-Based Leadership survey identifying your individual strengths.

At James Island Presbyterian Church, we “humbly insist” you find a place to serve within the body. As you serve in the non-threatening fellowship of the church it serves as practice to go into the world and serve as salt and light. We believe the church is the organic presence of Jesus Christ in the world as we love God and serve our neighbor the love of God is put on public display.

James Island Presbyterian Church is an Earth Care Congregation. We are joining together in our collective responsibilities as stewards of God’s creation.
