Special Gathering of
South Carolina

in Walterboro

A ministry dedicated to sharing the good news within the mentally challenged community in South Carolina.



The special needs community in Walterboro, South Carolina, is highlighted on Sunday afternoon by a chapel program called The Special Gathering. Before the worship, the enthusiastic adults with special needs work to transform the fellowship hall into a worship center. By 3 p.m. more than fifty mentally challenged persons have come together to worship, study, praise, and serve.

Sponsored by local churches from various denominations, Christians from the community are learning to appreciate the unique gifts that these adults bring to the Church. The Special Gathering choir is invited to sing in the local churches. Missions groups, pastors and members of the individual churches come to visit The Special Gathering services. They leave renewed and encouraged because of the meaningful worship experience offered at The Special Gathering.

Located at the corner of Jeffries & May Street, Special Gathering meets at Good Shephard Lutheran Church. The services begin at 3 p.m. each Sunday afternoon.
