learning, loving and living Jesus at Southside

Sundays In-Person or Online // 9:00 am or 11:00 am

Life Groups // 10:00 am

Well, the Summer break is officially over. The kids are back in school, and everyone is back in church! While some see the end of Summer as a sad time, we are super excited as there is a lot going on around Southside. We will start our Fall Kickoff covering the church plans for the rest of this year and how to make the most of this time serving the Lord. All of this will lead up to our annual pumpkin patch, movies on the point, and the joy and celebration of the holiday season.

You won't want to miss it! Join us as we get ready to kick off Fall with a bang!


For more than 50 years, Southside has been helping people just like you discover a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ that leads to greater meaning and direction in life.

Life Groups

We would love to see everyone in our church be in a healthy, relational Life Group. We are passionate about getting people together, creating relationships, enjoying fellowship all to know and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ.


In a Life Group, you’ll be able to meet new friends and grow closer to God, plus you’ll have a lot of fun. No matter your interests, goals, or stage of life, we have a group that will be a great fit for you.


Fall 2022 Life Groups start Sunday, August 28th. Not sure which Life Group to join? Come to our Connection Expo Sunday, August 21st or visit https://www.sumcjax.org/lifegroups/ to learn more.
