Welcome to the website for the Upper Long Cane church family!
Our calling is to joyfully celebrate God's grace in Jesus Christ in all that we do. ULCPC is a welcoming Presbyterian community of faith rooted in the earliest history of the Abbeville County area. We trust God in anticipating a bright future for our congregation as we carry out the great ends of the Church.
Our worship is traditional and liturgical, rooted in the classical forms of the Reformed tradition and the historic Christian faith. Our services center around the evangelical proclamation, in Word and Sacrament, of the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is undertaken both locally through involvement in several community ministries in the Abbeville-Greenwood-McCormick area & globally through the worldwide mission of the PCUSA. Additionally, many of our members individually support a wide variety of mission and service groups.
Our ministries include weekly Sunday School for children and adults; older adult, women's and men's groups. Senior High Youth meet for various events. The children of Upper Long Cane meet regularly for catechism, theme-parties and events. The children's Sunday School classes oversee the stocking of the church food pantry.
Church office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.

The Upper Long Cane Presbyterian Church of Abbeville, South Carolina, supports the Great Ends of the Church.
We are a community of believers,
diversified in our thinking but united in our purpose.
We welcome into our congregation all persons who wish to worship and be of service to God.
It is through God's grace and guidance that we grow in faith,
And as we grow in faith, we minister to the spiritual and physical needs of each other and of our community.
Approved by the Session, May 20, 1998
