March 18 Update from Our Shepherds
Due to the current global health situation as it relates to our community, we have decided to suspend worship services and classes effective immediately. This decision will be in place through the end of April, unless situations change in a very positive way before then. For now, we believe this is best. The sermons for Sunday will be made available for those who can connect to the Southside homepage (southsideonline.org). The links for the sermons will work beginning at 10:00am and 6:00pm.
Many of our brethren in the First Century had to hide from the danger of persecution lest they be killed. Many were slaves and could not assemble the way we do, but they met and worshipped and helped one another. In Acts 16, we read about two brothers in a dark prison cell praying and singing praises to God. The result of their faith? The jailer and his household were saved.
Our trust in our Lord is unwavering. We believe He will continue to care of us. Look for opportunities to use the unique situation to see to the needs of our Southside family, especially those who are elderly.
"Our Father, please be with us through this trying time. Guide us in the paths of righteousness and let us feel Your abiding presence. Be with this congregation and Your people all over the world. Lord, we love You and look to You for strength and wisdom. In the name of Jesus we pray, Amen."
