Community Partner Organizations

We are grateful for the businesses and groups who regularly host their services, meetings, classes and events within our facilities. These growing community members are part of our family!

LOOM is the home for Faith Connections Ministry of Fort Mill. Sunday services and mid-week studies take place here and we are excited to see their community grow!


Led by Ed and Dawanda Gourdin, they are looking to be a community minded church with practical teaching, showing the love of Jesus and compassion for all people.   

The Family of Faith Connections Ministry is committed to connecting the people of God through Faith in His Promises.  First and Foremost we were created to glorify Him.  We believe God loves all people and our desire is to connect any and all those who are willing to be filled and lead by the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Holy Trinity and live according to the truth written in His Holy Word.  Through our connections with one another we can expand the Kingdom of God through faith, practical teaching and life application. We aim to partner with those in the community of Fort Mill through Prayer, Outreach, Fellowship, and Service.

 I Thes 1:3 NIV-“We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ”
