BACK-TO-SCHOOL DRIVE

 

Let's help all students start the school year off with the supplies they need. One of the ways is through a program to provide school supplies, backpacks, clothes, and shoes to students who need help.

There are two ways you can help:

1. MAKE A MONETARY DONATION.  

 

With your donation, supplies can be ordered in bulk to help more children. Please click the link below to make a monetary donation to help a student with needs for this school year.

 

2. SPONSOR A CHILD.

 

Shop from the provided list and drop off the supplies at SUMC. Please click the link below to sponsor a child, and we will provide you with a list of supplies, sizes for clothes, shoes, etc., so that you can do the shopping yourself and drop off donations.

 


WELCOME!

Hey there! We look forward to your kids getting connected here at Southside where they can grow in their relationship with Jesus and one another. Our goal is to partner with parents to develop kids’ faith.

KIDS!

Have kids? No worries, we've got you covered. Southside offers programs for kids from birth through 5th grade. Your children will be in a safe environment where they will learn about Jesus and have a fun time doing it. 


During our 9:00 am and 11:00 am services, children worship with their families.  At the 10:00 am service children begin worship with their families and then are invited to Children's Church. For all of our services nursery is available for children, birth - 3 years old and professionally staffed.


Kids prek3 through 5th grade are a part of amazing grade level Life Groups at 11:00 am, in person and online options available. Kids Life Groups are supervised by adults and lead by high school students who are trained, experienced and passionate about thier faith. You can save some time by pre-registering your child below.

YOUR FIRST VISIT

Visiting us for the first time? No fear! Our friendly Greeting Team will lead you in your next steps when you arrive. We will meet your family and give you all the information you need about Children's Church, Kids Life Groups, nursery and more.  We can't wait to meet you!

SAFETY

Volunteers and staff at Southside are background screened and trained to create an atmosphere where families can be confident that their children are always nurtured and well cared for. We follow a detailed Child Protection Policy designed to keep all children in our care safe at all times.

WHAT WE TEACH

Your kids will experience an age appropriate lesson that will teach them about God and His love for them. The teaching is interactive and utilizes multiple approaches for different learning styles. Weekly kids teaching is aligned with the sermon topic and the adult Life Groups so everyone is on the same page. Our goal is for kids to have fun and understand who Jesus is and how He can make a difference in their lives.
