Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church has a rich history spanning over one hundred years in Columbus County. When the church was formed it was part of the Waccamaw Circuit, which according to historical records, was a collection of four rural churches, with over four hundred in average weekly worship attendance. In those days, the Hallsboro-Bolton Corridor of Columbus County was an area booming with business, mostly in logging, but one year later, times have changed. In the late-1950’s the church relocated from Wananish to the shores of Lake Waccamaw.
Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church is a growing church of 275 members and currently averages 140 in weekly worship. We support two worship services: a Contemporary services in the Fellowship Hall overlooking the lake (9:00 am) and a Traditional Service (11:00 am) in the Sanctuary.
Our Mission at Lake Waccamaw United Methodist Church, along with that of the United Methodist Church, is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. LWUMC is within the Southeastern Jurisdictional Conference, the North Carolina Conference, and the Harbor District.
