Plan Your Visit

Welcome

Our mission is to help people spiritually grow.  Everything at Embark revolves around that.  It is our heartbeat.  Helping people spiritually grow means we only focus on four things:
  • Helping others find God
  • Spiritually “feeding” people
  • Teaching them how to “feed” themselves
  • Showing how to “feed” others

Service Times & Location

SUNDAYS AT 10:30 AM

Orangeburg YMCA
2550 Saint Matthews Road
Orangeburg, SC 29118
We are currently meeting at our temporary location at the Orangeburg YMCA while renovations are being made to our permanent location at 3600 Columbia Road.

Service Style & Length

Our service is about 65 minutes. It centers around singing to God and then preaching a life-applicable message from the Bible. The music is “contemporary,” meaning we have a band consisting of guitars, drums and a keyboard. We believe worship should be fun, exciting and sacred all at the same time.

Dress

Come as you are. Our dress is casual yet respectable. Rather than focusing on dress, we focus on spiritually growing. Most usually wear jeans and casual shirts or tops. You should feel at home here, no matter how you dress.

Children's Ministry

Once you enter, you will see an Embark Kids check-in kiosk. There are volunteers serving at the kiosk who will help you register your children, escort you to the proper classrooms and answer any questions you may have about your child’s experience.  Click the button below to learn more about our program and how you can pre-register your child for your visit.

FAQs

Where do I park?

There is a large parking lot in front of the YMCA, with tall red flags saving a spot for visitors. There is also overflow parking in front of the Council on Aging. 

Where do I go when I get there?

We’ll have greeters at the door who will welcome you. As you enter the lobby, help yourself to a cup of coffee at the coffee station to your left, and stop by the welcome center if you have any questions. 

What are you going to ask of me?

We will not:
  1. Do anything to draw attention to visitors.
  2. Ask you for money.

We simply ask that you text "ecnew" to 97000 so that we can email you a gift.

You don't pass a plate? How do you finance Embark?

We never ask for money or take up an offering. Instead people give in several different ways. We have giving stations located around the auditorium where people can give via cash, check, or credit/debit card, but most give online through either our app or website.
