Worship

Worship is the central shared experience of our church life. We have two Sunday morning services-an 8:00 am service in the chapel, and a 10:00 am service in the sanctuary with an average attendance of about 230 adults and children.  Engaging preaching and music is a hallmark of South Church, and the sacraments of communion and baptism are administered on a regular basis. Special seasonal observances such as Holy Week Services and the Christmas Eve Services are important expressions of faith within the congregation.


In addition to Sunday morning there are two other regluar worship opportunities;

Second Saturday - which, as its name hints at, meets on the second Saturday of the month at 4:30pm.  This is a briefer service and relaxed in nature.


Wednesday Morning Prayer - what a great way to energize and renew midweek.  This service is held in the library at 7:30am.  Come join us in song, prayer and reflection.

Learn more about our various worship services at our Worship 411 page.

 

Check out the Anatomy of a Service page to walk through a sample of a worship service.

The Church School program for nursery through sixth grade meets during the 10:00a.m. service, with children beginning worship with their families before going to their classes. South Church recognizes that individuals proceed by their own paths in their faith journeys, and efforts are made to provide opportunities to explore the meanings of our faith through Bible studies, retreats and other activities in addition to morning worship. We encourage our members to recognize their own gifts and to use them in ministry within the church and in the greater community.
