We are God's community front porch:

Inviting, Including & Involving people in the life of Jesus.

Inviting, Including & Involving

Welcome to the Southern Hills Church of Christ website.  Southern Hills is a collection of imperfect people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, united by our faith in Jesus.  The grace that God has shown us - and continues to show us - is empowering us to love God and our neighbors more and more.  We believe our call is to Invite others to Jesus, Include them in Christ-centered community, and Involve them in the mission of God in the world.

In all we do at Southern Hills, we want to show the kindness, hospitality, and inclusion of Christ.  We invite you to learn more about us by reading the content below, clicking the links to the right, and exploring our website.  Better yet, come be a part of us in person.

Sunday Worship

Sunday worship assemblies take place each week at 9:00 a.m. in our Worship Center.  Here's what you can expect:

  • SINGING  We believe that expressing our love to God through song brings Him well-deserved glory, and helps encourage and unify us.  At Southern Hills we sing "A cappella," which means we sing with our voices without the use of instruments.
  • COMMUNION  Every Sunday we take communion, where we remember Jesus as we take bread and grape juice - which Jesus called his body and blood.  This weekly experience draws us to our Lord and to one another.
  • OFFERING  Plates are passed each week for our financial collection, which supports our efforts to bring the love and compassion of God to those in our community and world.  Our children give a special contribution each week to a mission effort that is connected to our church.
  • SERMON  Our church believes in the timeless truth of scripture.  Our preacher, Jarrod, is a gifted speaker who shares practical lessons rooted in the Word of God.
  • PRAYER & SCRIPTURE  At various points throughout our assemblies we pray and read from the Bible.
  • ANNOUNCEMENTS  In addition to being times to worship God, our assemblies are also opportunities to be a part of something bigger than ourselves.  There are usually one or two announcements each week that are designed to involve church members and guests in ministry opportunities.
  • FOR KIDS  At all of our worship assemblies, we provide a professionally staffed nursery for children under two years of age.  In addition, children age two through students in kindergarten are dismissed to Front Porch Kids - an age-appropriate time of learning and fun - after our Kids Offering.

  • What does your church believe?

    We believe in Jesus, pure and simple.  While Christians may disagree on many issues, we are unified by our belief in his life, his death, and his resurrection.  His teachings and his example - written about in scripture - shape our understanding of life and of God.

  • Will I be welcome at your church?

    Absolutely.  No matter where you've been, or what you've done or haven't done, you are invited to be a part of Southern Hills.  There are no perfect people here, only people who have been impacted by the love and grace of God.  We desire to share the same love and grace with one another.

  • Who leads your church?

    Our sincere goal is to be a Christ-led church.  Our church selects shepherds (also called elders) who seek God's will and help us stay true to it.  Our elders and ministers work together to discern and follow the will of God, keeping in step with His Spirit.

  • What if I want to know more about Southern Hills?

    Come visit us!  And after our worship assembly, please stay for Starting Point.  Each month we begin a new four-week session of Starting Point, where you will meet friendly members of our church who will help you know more about our church and find answers to your questions.
