How can we support the ministry of South Side during this time? - While it is the case that the building is closed for the time being, the church is not! This is a unique opportunity to put our faith into action in the way that we connect with and serve others. We wish for everyone to be safe and follow the guidelines of our national, state and local officials, but this is a great time to call or text an old friend, check in on your neighbors, offer to run errands for those more at-risk, and encourage people to connect with our church online. The ministry of South Side has not stopped, it has just changed for the time being. We also ask that you would continue to give to support the ministry of South Side during this time. Please see below for more questions about giving.


When will we be back at church? - The elders and ministers of South Side Christian Church are working to provide a safe return to to worship services.
