This is an old church. It is unique and you can see some of the evolution in various rooms and sanctuaries. We were there for a dinner function for JumpStart ministries.

One of the few buildings In Columbia to survive the burning of Columbia. The stained glass windows are simply amazing as is the old cemetery on the grounds. Across the street from the state House.

I walked around this area at sunset and it was gorgeous. I couldn't read most of the headstones so bring a flashlight if you'll be there later. The church is stunning and the stained glass is quite amazing.
