Ministries

wcs_and growKids at South are loved and treasured. Each week they "climb" the mountain together with caring teachers and helpers and enjoy a unique mountain-themed environment. There they learn of God’s plan for their lives as revealed in His Word. This learning occurs through relationships with other children, teachers and helpers as well as through age-appropriate lessons and, of course, through play and fun!

Every week throughout the year on SonView Mountain, you’ll discover a well-rounded program that includes Sunday morning classes, AWANA, Vacation Bible School, service opportunities, Kids Choir and more.

children_smallerOur Vision is this: South will provide a safe, loving, creative atmosphere that introduces children to Jesus Christ by challenging them to grow in their faith through prayer, worship and the study of God's Word and encouraging them to share their faith and give their lives in service to God

This worldwide program focuses on Bible memory, which introduces the children to Jesus Christ. They have a handbook to complete which aids them in the study of God's Word. The evening Schedule includes small group handbook time, a large group council time, and an exciting game time. Our Awana program runs in conjunction with the school calendar. The Awana year ends in May with the awards celebration. It's never too late to join!

The program is broken into three main groups:

Students

South Student Ministries exists to help students develop a closer relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are all about exploring God's truth as it applies to the issues students face every day. We are a community that desires to live out the teachings of Jesus by... • Reaching out to those in need • Connecting deeply with one another • Growing in maturity as followers of Jesus • Serving each other and the community as Jesus would    

"Cutting Edge Ministry" is an active ministry designed to equip and encourage believers to grow in their relationship with Christ and to share their lives with those around them. It is a place where Jesus is praised, Scripture is honored, and relationships are real.

Our focus is primarily on the campuses of Michigan State University and Lansing Community College. Our aim as a ministry is to build friendships with people around us whether it's in class, at work, through sports, or around campus in hopes that we may share our lives with these friends and direct them towards a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This personal relationship with Jesus Christ has significantly changed the lives of many individuals within Cutting Edge Ministry and it is our joy to tell anyone who might be interested about it.

people_watchingAll Adult Bible Communities meet regularly on Sunday morning and take part in a variety of activities outside of their Sunday morning classes. For class times, see the list at the left.

Building on the tradition of Sunday School, Adult Bible Communities provide a place to belong as Christian fellowship is established upon biblical instruction. While we believe that corporate worship should be a priority for all believers, we also know that people desire to belong to a smaller group in which they can grow in their knowledge of the Bible and its application to everyday life. These groups are broadly based on age, stage in life, or shared commitments.

Growth Groups

We would like to invite you to get connected with Growth Groups - the small Groups ministry of South Church! Growth Groups are a great way to meet others and grow in your relationship with Christ together. As you spend time studying God's Word, applying it to your life, and praying with one another, you will be amazed at how God changes you and those in your Growth Group.

"...Be transformed by the renewing of your mind..." Romans 12.2"

In Romans 12, the apostle Paul reveals that God's desire is for us to be transformed people with renewed minds who reflect Christ. One of the best ways to allow God to transform your life is by partnering with other believers to study the Bible together. God wants to use each of our gifts and personalities to bring about transformation in all of us. Our vision is that Growth Groups would be a way for God's Word and Spirit to change your life, and the lives of many others growing with you.

There is no greater responsibility a man of God has than to set his heart to follow the Word of God. This involves careful and diligent study, followed by practical daily application in our lives.

The men of South Church meet for early morning or evening studies to study, grow, and reach out to other men. Currently we have retreats, golf outings, and other special events planned. Be sure to check the calendar of events.

Mission Statement:

  • Encourage men to live lives worthy of God's call (I Thes. 2:11-12)
  • Building into faithful men (2 Tim. 2:2)
  • Men proving to be faithful servants (I Cor. 4:1-2)

The worship ministries of South Church serve to bring praise to Jesus Christ and to magnify His presence in the hearts of the congregation. God is a creative being and we are made in His image.

The area of worship ministries assists the church in claiming Christ's lordhsip over its creative talents and in using those talents for His honor and purposes to ultimately bring glory to God and to enjoy and worship Him forever.

Our intent is to serve, prepare for, integrate, complement and further expand the ministry of God's word.

No one is perfect; we are certainly no exception. Arise is a group of un-perfect people who want to know God and one another on a deeper level. No matter where you are on your faith walk, we believe that you are valuable and have something significant to contribute to our community. Each of us has been given unique skills, gifts, likes, and a one-of-a-kind personality. When we come together, by the grace of God, our passion will arise to live, serve, and love in the way we were created to.
