SOUTHSIDE READING PROGRAM
Many people in the community around Southside are unable to read. That means they may not have the opportunity to fully understand the power that can be found in God's Word, The Bible. We have recently established a reading program for community children and youth that begins at 4:15 every Wednesday night, right before our Wednesday evening service. With the success of this program and the help of volunteers, we hope to expand this program to adults in the community.
HOMELESS HOLIDAY MEALS
Every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas day Southside serves the homeless with a hot, home cooked meal. Southside members and volunteers from around the Greater Jackson Area help by bringing food and by fellowshipping with our honored guests.
Southside feeds 1000's of people each year through our food pantry, and with each person fed, comes an opportunity to spread the Gospel of Jesus. It is through church giving and outside donations that we are able to provide this life changing ministry.
We provide sack lunches daily for those in need.
Our church provides clothing for many homeless each year. More than just clothing, we also provide clean bathrooms and showers. We are helped in doing this through the donations of clothing and toiletries by Southside members, through donations of other area churches, and private donations.
The Southside body of believers spreads beyond the physical walls of our church building. Our membership also includes men and women whose circumstances may not allow them to attend our regular church services. Southside has a team of dedicated men and women who meet the needs of such members by scheduling visits for fellowship, prayer, and bible study.
If you would like to be a part of these ministries, please contact our church office for details.
