We are excited to announce that we will be gathering together again at Southside beginning, Sunday June 7th! On that day we will begin a series entitled, Ascension Sunday, celebrating the Jesus ascension to Heaven and His establishment of the Great Commission. In these quiet months we’ve be working to improve facilities. We can’t wait for you to see the progress we’ve made!
In our efforts to ensure a safe and healthy return to ministry on our campus, we will begin a phased reopening schedule to allow us to serve you and maintain the highest standards of safety for in-person worship.
While we're excited to worship with you on-campus, we'll also continue to worship together through our Southside Live Stream. Our live stream is a great alternative for you if you're out of town, high risk, or being cautious, you can continue to join us in worship at http://www.ssbaptistchurch.com/media/live-stream
