At Southside Baptist Church, we feel that it’s OUR responsibility to “clear the way” for you to come to church. We want you to be able to experience the great music, encouraging messages, friendly people and enjoyable atmosphere that are a part of Southside Baptist.  And we know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions.  How do I get there… what should I wear… what’s available for my kids… what should I expect in church?

Here is a quick look at what you can expect.

Here at Southside Baptist Church, we’ll make sure the first face you see when you approach the church has a smile on it. Whether you need childcare or a restroom, a greeter will be nearby to help you get where you need to go. 

The Message             

You'll enjoy upbeat music and practical messages that help you deal with real life issues. What you learn during the service, you’ll be able to use during the week. We want to help you connect with the personal hope and practical help that God can give us. 

Pastor Steve Daffron focuses his messages on firm Biblical teachings and where they interact with real life issues. We want you to be able to say that what we talked about on Sunday gave you something that could help you on Monday: in your family, at your work, with your life.  At the core of it all is the fact that God has made all of us with a purpose in mind.  It’s not about religion, it’s about a relationship with God. It’s not about pretending that we’re perfect, it’s about a God who is willing to give His grace to grow us.

What do I wear?

We’re more concerned with meeting your real life needs than with what you wear. So, wear whatever makes you feel more comfortable.

What about my kids?             

We know that as a parent you need be sure that your children are in a SAFE learning environment. And we know that your children are looking for a FUN place to learn. We offer nursery for the entire service. Elementary age kids thru 5th grade join us in worship and then go to Church 4 Kids where they had a lesson designed just for them. We hope your teens will enjoy the main service on Sunday morning and we would like to invite them to join us Wednesday evening for Bible Study.

If it’s been a long time since you’ve been to church, Southside Baptist Church has you in mind! There’s already enough you have to think about when you’re visiting a church for the first time. We hope that getting some of this “stuff” out of the way not only encourages you to join us for church, but also helps you to connect with the hope and encouragement that God has for you.
