Who We Are

Southside Men is the discipleship ministry for men at Southside UMC. Our philosophy of men's ministry is pretty simple. We believe men are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ from the inside out and, in turn, that permeates every sphere of life.

Calling and Work

Wednesday Mornings (6:30-7:30 am)
Family Life Center

From the first verse of the book of Genesis to the present day, we know that God himself is a worker - and that he created us also to work. Although the Lord may not specifically direct us to a particular job, he does want us to strive toward radiating his glory in all aspects of our lives. We need to ask ourselves how we can fulfill the calling of God in every area of our lives - through paid or unpaid work. (6 Lessons)

Wisdom for Work

Wednesday Evenings (6-7 pm)
Family Life Center

We are called to be diligent, adding quality and value to what we do and produce. Using the teachings of Proverbs as touchstones, this study will help you develop building blocks for a life of wisdom and integrity from which our work ethic flows. This study will help you rise above difficult situations, reflect God's character in the workplace, and walk in righteousness as faithful, trustworthy workers. (7 Lessons)
