Jerusalem Lutheran Church is located on the banks of the Savannah River about 30 miles above Savannah. The church
building, with walls 21 inches thick, was built in 1767-1769 of materials prepared mainly among the Salzburgers
themselves. The bricks were made from clay deposits near the church itself. All that now remains of the original settlement is the church building and cemetery.
The Zimmer pipe organ that we now use was installed in 1969-1970. An upper window was removed, and the pulpit was
lowered two steps to accommodate the pipes.
The congre-gation is part of the Southeastern Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America .
Sunday Church School is held each Sunday morning at 9:45 am followed by the Service of Holy Communion at 11:00 am. The congregation has worshipped and glorified God for 277 years and continues to be a vital part of the body of Christ.
The Tuesday morning Bible Study group continues exploring the Gospel of Mark. Dave Hendrix will be leading the studies at 10:00 AM each Tuesday. Everyone is invited to take advantage of this opportunity to grow in faith and in the understanding of the Bible.
