Hi and Welcome!

You're at the Digital Campus of Southside. Check out what we believe, listen to a sermon or two. If you have questions, please ask. You can reach a real human by using this contact page or by phoning the church office at 256-539-0621 Monday-Thursday 8:30-4:30.

You're invited to worship in person with us Sunday (201 Marsheutz Ave SE). We have terrific Bible study groups for adults, kids and youth beginning at 8:45. Worship is 10:00—11:30ish with blended (mostly contemporary) music and an energetic sermon by our pastor.

As a guest, you have a special parking space right across from the front of the church. And a Welcome Center is just inside the front doors of the main building. A host or hostess will answer your questions and help you make the most of your time with us.

We look forward to meeting you!


Sunday Evenings at Southside

For Adults

From 5:30-5:50, in the sanctuary—Heritage Hymn Sing

We sing classic hymns out of the hymnbook. If you've grown up with the old songs and wish you had a chance to sing them again, you'll love this time of singing. Twenty minutes may not seem like very long, but you'll find this a great amount of time. Some of the songs we've sung lately: On Jordan's Stormy Banks, When We All Get To Heaven, There's A Land That Is Fairer Than Day. And more often than not, we sing that often-overlooked third verse!

The Problem of Evil

In this week's message, Andy shares the seriousness of the problem of evil in the world, describing a life dealing with suffering like "driving through the fog at night". He shares a handful of points of light to help navigate the fog. May this message bring you hope and encouragement for your difficult days and for eternity.

Discovery Lunch

On February 21 right after the morning worship service, we will be having our quarterly Discovery Lunch. If you are a new member or have been visiting Southside and would like to know more about us and meet the staff, this lunch is for you and it is free! If you and your family can attend, please contact Jan Hunter at the church office (256-539-0621 or jan.hunter@southbc.org) and let her know.


Who Do You Say I Am?

Why do we call someone "Mom" or "Dad"? We call them this because of how we recognize them and relate to them. With these names, we are saying "This is a person who loves me, cares for me and has parented me." If it is a healthy relationship, there are certain things that we can count on and trust with this person.

There is a lot said through the title that we give someone, but sometimes we say things with our mouth but our actions say something different. In this week's message, we explore who we say Jesus is, and how this impacts our belief and our church.

How's your Vision?

One of the most dangerous people is a driver with foggy vision.  Equally dangerous is a Christian with foggy vision concerning God.  In this week's message, we will follow an "unusual" healing of a blind man and conduct a spiritual vision check-up by examining the nature of Christ and the events that fog our vision.

The Beautification of Christ's Bride (part 2)

This week I have had several conversations regarding devotion and fellowship. Several thoughts and questions were raised. Family, if we want to encounter God and be His vessel, we must make sure we hear and understand what He is saying to us. We must figure out how to transfer from the hearing to the doing. Let's get this right. This is a very critical time in the history of our country and world. In part two of the series "The Beautification of Christ's Bride", we discover how devotion and fellowship help us become the beautiful bride that Christ has purposed us to be.
