“Feel free to contact me. I’m here to help you as you grow in your relationship with Christ and would love to help you find ways to worship, connect and serve.”
Simply SouthSimply South Are you new to South? We invite you to a casual lunch in the Student Ministry Center and Lounge. There will be a time to get to know Pastor Don, as well as a Q&A with members of the ministry staff to help you learn more about South Church and our desire to help you grow in relationship with Jesus Christ and connect with others at South Church. We would love to meet you. Children are welcome. Please RSVP by clicking here.

We are offering this lunch for people who are newcomers to South (anyone from a first-time visitor to someone who has been attending for up to six months or so).

Christianity Explored Who is Jesus? Why did he come? What does it mean to follow him? We will answer these questions by studying the life of Jesus in the Gospel of Mark on Sunday evenings. This study is perfect for a sincere seeker of spiritual truth or a skeptic who has real questions about the Christian faith. It is also a perfect opportunity for a seasoned saint to bring along a nonbelieving friend. Join Pastor Joel for this eight-week course in the Fireside Room. Light refreshments and childcare will be provided. Please RSVP by clicking here.
