AME Churches in Columbia
- African Methodist Episcopal Church - 7th District
- Historic Bethel AME Church
Organized in 1866, members of Bethel AME first worshiped in an old sword factory on Wayne Street. The congregation relocated several times in the downtown Columbia before acquiring land at Sumter Street. With ever-increasing membership, Bethel AME moved to the old Shandon Baptist Church site at 819 Woodrow Street in 1995. Today Bethel AME Church is one of the largest AME church campuses in the world and is also home to Bethel Learning Center, a SCISA-accredited school and one of the most highly-regarded private schools in the state. The Renaissance Foundation now owns the Sumter Street building, which serves as a Cultural Arts Center.

Greek Orthodox Churches in Columbia
- Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church
This Greek Orthodox church in downtown Columbia was founded in 1936 when Greek immigrants established a community in the South Carolina midlands and began worshiping together. By 1939 members of the small congregation had acquired a frame house for their church services. The church was called Assumption Greek Orthodox Parish by 1942 and became an official member of the Archdiocese of North and South America. The church as well as the Greek community in Columbia grew from this point, requiring the congregation to build a larger house of worship at Sumter and Calhoun Streets in 1949. Once the new church was built, the congregation changed its name to the Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Trinity.
