Worship service guidelines

When attending the service there are a few guidelines we ask that you follow:

Face mask – Given the new guidelines by the Governor, all those attending the services this weekend will be required to wear a face mask. All greeters and ushers will also be in face masks. We will have a few face masks on hand, but it would be best for you to bring your own.


Entrance – We will limit the number of doors opened. We will have doors open on both sides of the Visitors center and ask that you enter and exit through those doors only.


Seating – You will notice the chairs are spaced out to accommodate the distance needed. Please do not move any chairs. You will notice areas that will work for large and smaller numbers of family members. Please do not move any of the chairs. The balcony will be made available but the access to it will be limited to using the stairs in the Worship Center. We ask that when you exit the balcony that you come down those stairs and exit through the back doors into the Visitor Center.


Bathrooms – We are planning to have a shorter than normal service, therefore, we are asking, if possible, that you not use the bathrooms here at the church. Yet, if there is a need, they will be available for use.


Hand Sanitizer – there will be 3 hand sanitizing stations available.

Worship Folder and Sermon Outlines – This is a change! The guidelines prohibit us from passing out Worship Folders and Sermon Outlines but there will be on the table as you enter Worship Folder’s and Sermon outlines available for you to pick up if you desire.


No one with a fever or symptoms of COVID -19 or known exposure to COVID-19 case in the prior 14 days is permitted to attend the service or be in the building.


Offering – There will be an opportunity at the end of the service as you leave to place your offering in an offering plate.

At this time there will be no other classes offered. Until further notice, children who attend with their parents will need to sit with their family. Part of the guidelines requires that families sit together when attending a service. Parents who have small children may not feel comfortable bringing them to church. We absolutely understand and support your decision.

Where can I send my kids?

Our goal in children's and youth ministry at Southside is to partner with            parents to produce spiritually mature adults. We encourage everyone to  attend an age-appropriate Sunday School class or Life Group and attend the worship gathering together. Childcare (nursery) is provided for children from birth to Pre-K.

Is Southside a safe church?

All of our adults who work with children and students (birth through 18 years old) are members of Southside for at least 6 months, apply for the position, interview with a staff member, receive a criminal background check, complete C.A.R.E. training to protect themselves and our children, and are always in a room with another adult.
