Parish Regions

Parish Regions

Current parish regions based on several factors including current Community Groups and Zip Codes. These are not rigid boundaries and periodically reviewed and updated by the Session of Elders.

An important way we seek to cultivate Gospel Community and work together for the mutual care of the Body of Christ at Columbia Presbyterian is to organize people into Parishes. A Parish Team is comprised of a geographical clustering of Community Groups and a defined set of Officers (Elders and Deacons).  The Session periodically reviews and makes adjustments, so these leadership lists are subject to change.

We currently have four (4) Parish Teams.  A person is connected to a particular Parish in the following manner:

  • If you participate in a Community Group, then your Parish association is based upon which team the group belongs to.
  • If you do not currently participate in a Community Group, then your Parish association is based upon your address.
