The Ocean Drive Presbyterian Church family is a very active Christian community serving South Carolina’s beautiful Grand Strand. As authentic Christians we strive to live our faith every day by serving those around us:  those in our church, our local community, the region and beyond. All are encouraged to volunteer their time and talents to serve others in Christ’s name.  It’s also a great way to experience true joy in Christ, meet people and make new friends in the Ocean Drive family!
