Attention Southside Congregation - An Update Regarding Sunday Morning

Dear Friends,

I am saddened to think of how “social distancing” will affect those of us at Southside who are hurting and blessed by one another.  Being with you on Sundays is the highlight of my week. On the one hand, I understand the importance of us all playing our part in preventing the spread of this pandemic.  On the other hand, the body of Christ is more important now than ever.  The Elders at Southside are following the guidelines set out by Mayor McComb and Governor Abbott, but the decision was not without prolonged and prayerful consideration.

Here are the links to our live-stream worship service, which will go on air at 10:25 AM Sunday.

We are going through uncharted waters.  Please pray that our congregation remains nourished by God's Word.

Welcome to Southside Community Church

Southside Community Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. At Southside, we come together to worship from a wide variety of backgrounds. Connected by the good news of Jesus Christ, our church and worship are all about God

In our worship services, we read the Bible, preach the Bible, pray the Bible, and sing the Bible. Regardless of your background, if you have an interest in Gospel-driven church, we hope you'll visit us!

Pastor's Welcome

Welcome to Southside! I have had the distinct pleasure of being the pastor here since September 2014. In that short amount of time, I have been blown away by the spiritual depth of the people here. They have ministered to me far more than I have ministered to them.

We are a gospel driven church focused on the glory of God and the renewal of His people. If you are looking for a hip church with lots of flare and excitement, there are other congregations in town who do that far better than we do. But if you're wanting to know God better, struggling to understand why He does what he does, fighting against sin or doubt, or are just wondering if the Bible is really true, then we have a lot to offer.

Every life has a story, and I trust our people and our worship will be a blessing to you the way they are a blessing to me. Thank you for considering Southside, and I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story, too!
