Our vision for “2016” is to partner with other community churches or organizations to meet the needs of the community. Our theme is “Reaching Beyond Borders to Serve the Community.” Each of us have been successful in meeting the needs of our immediate surroundings, by our ministries working together, we would be able to extend outward and meet a greater need. Multiple ministries working together would avail greater resources and opportunities for our youth and congregations. This year our annual Back to School Bash will part of the Lower Richland Community Fun Day. This event is a collaboration with other area churches and organizations. This collaboration is not about one church over another but meeting the needs of God’s people.

- Old McGraw Community Association
- Crossroad Community Center
- Shiloh AME (Eastover)
- Antioch AME (Eastover)
- St. Phillips AME (Eastover)
- St. John Baptist (Hopkins)
