What Can I Expect?

Thanks for visiting Embark Church online!  We hope and expect this gives you an idea of who we are, what we’re about and where we are going.  Whether you have been involved with church before or just now beginning to explore, please know YOU are welcome here.  We want to make your visit as enjoyable as possible and how the following provides an idea of what to expect.



We worship at 10:30am every Sunday morning. However, we don’t worship in a traditional “church building.” Instead, we meet in the Orangeburg YMCA located at 2550 St. Matthews Road, Orangeburg, SC 29118.


Our service is 60 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.


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.


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. For more information, please check out our Children’s ministry page here: Children’s Ministry

Visit us this Sunday and expect to encounter God!
