Families at South Church

South Church offers families a multitude of experiences and opportunities. You don’t need to be a member or have ever stepped in our doors to participate in our community and work! You are invited to join us for any or all of it. Many programs start in the fall, but don’t let that stop you. You are welcome any time!
