Our mission is to equip the children at our church with a growing faith in Jesus Christ and a heart to share His love with others. By partnering with parents, we want to teach children about the life-changing love of Christ and how it applies to their lives right now—no matter how old they are! It's our hope that children will not only grasp the message of God's love for themselves, but understand how important it is to share that message with those around them as well. 

Online Children's Church 

Parents, a new Children's Church video will premiere each Sunday as a resource to help your children grow in their faith. Children can view on a separate device while enjoy the sermon or they can watch at a later time. Before Sunday, you can visit the Southside Kids Facebook and Instagram pages for each week’s craft supply list. You can find the Children's Church video below on our website, or by going to Southside's YouTube page and looking on the Kids Crew playlist. (Tip: Headphones! And crayons & paper or play-dough to help them interact or illustrate the lesson.)

Backyard Bible Camp

This Summer at Southside come along on an adventure with the Backyard Bible Camp! Choose the children’s Bible that works best for your family reading time or a version for independent readers. Then, head out on an adventure! This 6-week reading guide will turn your nightly  bedtime storytime into an adventure through the Bible as you are guided through the most amazing story ever told!

SIGN UP by Monday, June 22nd and we will deliver your BACKYARD BIBLE KIT by Friday, June 26th. If you sign-up later, you will get instructions on where and when to pick-up your kit. Click here to sign-up for your Backyard Bible Kit!

Families with kids, contact me to be connected with a Senior. This is a great time to connect with another generation, reach out to someone who may be at home alone and help care for one another.
