Who We Are:

The Southside Church Serving God and You

Southside History

The Southside Church began in 1958 as an outreach of a north side congregation to reach out to seekers on the south side of the Milwaukee metro area. After temporarily meeting in Cudahy, a building was erected in 1962. The congregation grew until it was able to appoint elders in 1975. Another milestone was reached in 1992 when a fellowship hall and classroom addition was built to handle our ever increasing needs. We look forward to continued growth as we continue to do the Lord’s work in Milwaukee.

Worship

Our worship periods are times for praise and thanksgiving. Their focus is on God and His relevance to our lives today. Our intent is to glorify the Father, Son and Spirit for the great things They have done in our lives. Our worship includes singing, prayer, the public reading of scripture, the taking of the Lord’s Supper, and a study of God’s Word. A freewill offering is also taken, but visitors are not expected to participate. We welcome your presence any time we gather to worship.

Missions

Acknowledging that the gospel is for all the world, we are actively involved in missions. A sizable percentage of our budget is dedicated to those serving on the mission field both in this country and abroad, as well as to missionaries in training.

Bible School

In order to be a good servant, one must understand who the Master is and what He expects. That is why we emphasize the study of His word, the Bible. To address this need, we offer Bible classes for children of all ages, as well as classes for adults, every Sunday morning at 9:00. We want you to feel free to join us as often as you can.

Home Study Groups

Because we reach out to so many parts of the metro area, we at Southside break up into Bible study groups during the week. Our purpose is not only to learn more about God’s word, but to grow closer to each other. These are informal gatherings in which everyone is invited to participate. Visitors are always welcome to study with us. If you would like to attend, please call the church office for the time and location of one near you.

Transportation

For those who would like to worship with us but need a ride, we strive to provide whatever transportation is needed. For help with this, please call the church office.

Community Outreach

The Southside church makes a concerted effort to help those in the community around us. A major part of this is our annual "Give-Away" (a free rumage/garage sale) in August. If you know of any people who might benefit from this, please let them know about it. If you have any items you would like to donate to our give-away, we would be happy to pass them along to those in need.

Church Leadership

The Bible teaches that the only head of Christ's church is Jesus Himself, but that He has given each congregation of His body the guidelines for appointing its own leadership in the form of shepherds, wise men responsible for the spiritual health of the church. Southside's shepherds or elders are shepherds of the flock to whom we look for guidance and direction.
