Our outreach ministries are served primarily through the deacons, Terry Acker and David Blackstone, and focus on serving those in East Texas.

Below, you can find out more about our outreach ministries.


In honor of Emma Grace May, the Grace Memorial Fund was established to reach out to families both within and outside the Shiloh congregation suffering an incomparable loss, the loss of a child. It is the mission of the Grace Memorial Fund to demonstrate God’s love initially by giving a simple gift, a “Grace Box”, while ultimately providing lasting relationships and a network of love.

Opportunities to serve will include prayer, meal preparation, building additional Grace boxes and donations.

To request a Grace Box, or to donate, contact the church office or Erin and Marshall May.
