St. John is an inclusive and reconciling congregation seeking to become a church as diverse as the city we serve. Our roots go deep in Augusta’s history. But we want to be Christ’s hands and feet now, serving our neighbors in the city today. Would you like to join in?

St. John has enjoyed a 49-acre peninsula on Clarks Hill (now Thurmond) Lake almost since the lake was created in 1954. The property is on South Carolina Highway 28, about 25 miles outside of Augusta. These wooded acres provide a natural retreat close to the city, with a sand beach for swimming, a pavilion and firepit overlooking the lake, a lodge with kitchen and dining area, and the Chapel Under the Pines. St. John members come up here to camp, swim, picnic, boat, and relax in the breeze on the point overlooking the lake. Every evening, the sunset preaches a beautiful sermon.
