We are all about kids at Southside! Sunday mornings we offer nursery services and children’s church for elementary age kids. Our current Kids For Christ  Wednesday night Bible study is on hold due to Covid. We invite all our children to come to Children’s Church on Sundays at 10:45 AM.


180 is a group of middle and high school students doing life together while loving people and serving Jesus. Currently, there is a high school & college age Bible study planned starting on September 9 at 6:45 PM in the Shed. Middle Schoolers are welcomed as well. Contact Audrey Stanley for more information.


Being plugged into a small group is an important part of your spiritual journey. We offer several different small groups that meet throughout the week, that will encourage you to grow deeper into your relationship with Jesus! Currently due to Covid, only our Sunday School Classes are meeting. Other groups will resume in the near future.
