PUMPKINS ARE COMING!

The patch is the largest outreach to our community! We are known as the church with pumpkins! You will meet hundreds of visitors and represent Christ to a world that walks onto our church campus


AND WE NEED YOU! 

We are asking all SUMC Parents, Students, Adults to sign up to help in the patch. We need EVERY student to sign up for at least one shift this year. Even just ONE SHIFT can make a difference! Parents and Adult Chuch Members, we need your help to ensure the pumpkin patch is a success. Please sign up for a shift to help and represent the love of Christ to all visitors to the Patch.

Learn and Grow Classes

September 22 & 29, 2021

God did not design ministry for just a few with knowledge. In the SUMC Learn & Grow classes you can learn more about God, your spiritual gifts, and your abilities to grow and minister to the needs of others.

 

All levels are welcome! If you are just starting or have years of study, the Bible is a living book and there is always more to learn.

Think of it as a way to find your purpose and your people, because there's more for you at Southside than just attending a weekend service. You have the opportunity to discover your purpose and start living out all that God has for you!
