Encounter Groups

Every Sunday @ 9:30am A journey for all ages discovering God through His Word in small groups.

At South Side we believe it is vitally important for every believer to engage in growing in the knowledge of the word of God. As we grow larger as a church body it is imperative that we also grow smaller. Our desire is to meet the spiritual needs of every person here at South Side. We believe that we can accomplish that through small groups that bring us together to know Christ in a deeper way. As a result we will grow in Christ, and be equipped to go for Christ into the world.


No matter where you are in your walk with Christ we have an encounter group for you. We encourage you to get plugged into one of our encounter groups to meet your spiritual needs.
