Worship Services


Sunday Worship 10:30am
Worship services are held in the Sanctuary every Sunday at 10:30am during summer months. South Church is active in the community’s interfaith services on Ash Wednesday and Thanksgiving, participates in a pulpit exchange with Temple Emanuel in January, and holds special services like the Prayers for the People, Blue Christmas, and Maundy Thursday services, for example.

music and worship

Our services seek to relate the bible to everyday needs and current events as well as provide a balance of music which appeals to a wide range in tastes. South Church is a church for children where children are welcomed, valued, cherished and included. The Church is an Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ. Although we are of varied minds, we are one body, bound together in Christ. We recognize the uniqueness of every individual as God's beloved child. We seek to respond faithfully to God's call for justice for all creation. We strive in word and deed to be faithful to Jesus' model of loving acceptance. We seek to create a sanctuary where all will know they are welcomed and included. You are welcomed, no matter your age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, marital status, race and ethnicity, physical and mental ability or economic circumstance, into the full life and ministry of South Church, including worship, sacraments and rites. Join us as we grow together in God's love. YOU are welcome here!
