Because it's never easy to visit a new church for the first time....
Worship Service - each Sunday at 10:25 a.m.
What can you expect when you visit for the first time at South?
You will be greeted warmly by someone from the church, who will provide you with a bulletin describing the way we worship and containing all the material you need to fully understand and participate in the service.
As you enter the sanctuary, you will see lots of folks greeting one another and catching up on news. If you arrive early enough, you may hear our choir warming up. Our service is formal, but comfortable, in style, and changes a little from week to week. With the printed order of worship, you will find it easy to follow the service as it progresses. Of course, any of the people near you will be happy to answer questions you might have during the service. But don’t worry – you won’t be singled out during the service in any way. The length of our service varies, but usually runs about 60-70 minutes. Stop by, relax, and enjoy what could become the most refreshing hour of your week!
There is no dress code at South Church. Come dressed up or come casual, just come as you are.
The celebration of Communion is observed on the first Sunday of every month, and anyone can participate in this time of reflection and prayer. We serve Welch's Grape Juice instead of wine.
Immediately following the worship service, please join us for refreshments and conversation in the Assyrian Memorial Parlor.
Children & Teens
Children and teens are welcome to join in the worship service. At the close of the children's sermon, children through middle school age may leave to attend Grace Place (Sunday School) classes.
A fully equipped nursery provides quality care for children five years of age or younger. Crafts, games, and story-time are included, and parents are encouraged to visit.
The Sanctuary and all parts of the church campus are handicapped accessible. If you have any questions or require assistance, please see one of the greeters or any church member.
Hearing-assistance devices are available to enable hard-of-hearing people to listen to the sermons, prayers, and music.
