We long for moments to reconnect with ourselves and one another. We believe that God works within us when we’re in relationship with one another – sharing our joys and concerns, wrestling with doubt, and challenging one another to grow. Caring for those in our church who are grieving, hospitalized, ill or dealing with a major life crisis. Every time we gather together and lead with our hearts, leaning in with vulnerability and intention, we form our faith here at South Church. Consider yourself invited to everything!
Bring your rocking chairs, bean bags and more to turn Fellowship Hall into the ultimate hang out space for movies, games, outdoor adventures and meaningful conversation. Fun includes the Chili Cook Off. Sign up here!
Have you been perfecting your chili recipe? Or are you better suited for eating and critiquing? Come and serve your chili or come and eat everyone else’s chili! In Fellowship Hall.
Have you ever sat through the financial presentation at the South Church Annual Meeting and wondered, “What are they talking about?” or “What does this all mean to me?” Or maybe you’re just curious about where all the money comes from and where is it spent.
