New to town? St.Stephen's Lutheran Church is located in the center of town, in a community in the center of our state. Our community is home to every amenity you’d expect of a major metropolitan area, not to mention a spectacular 50,000 acre lake. We're also just a couple of hours from South Carolina's world-famous beaches and the serenity of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Getting to either area is no problem. Three interstate highways intersect here — I-20, I-26 and I-77, with I-85 and I-95 just an hour's drive away.

More than 600,000 people call the Lexington/Columbia area their home, a number expected to increase to one million by 2025.

We've included these local links for your convenience. If you have questions about our town, feel free to call the church office anytime (803-359-6562) for additional helpful information.
