Library Book Review

Do you work with youth or have children of your own?  In the Leadership Training section of the library, we have Josh McDowell’s “Handbook on Counseling Youth – A Comprehensive Guide for Equipping Youth Workers, Pastors, Teachers, Parents.”  It is a comprehensive, up-to-date resource for the 50 major issues facing today’s youth with ideas to help guide young people through the minefields on the path to adulthood.


We have an attended nursery for small children during morning worship periods in room 2.  We also have a training room at the rear of the auditorium where parents can stay with their little ones while worshipping.

A children’s worship is scheduled to begin near the start of the worship lesson time.  Children’s Worship is intended to provide a time of worship for children age 3 thru Grade 3 and to encourage families with children.  Everyone is asked to begin worship in the auditorium (adults and children).  Parents should accompany their smaller children to the basement as well as children who have not attended before.  Before you return upstairs, be sure to indicate to the people at the door if you would prefer us to keep your young person till you return to get them or if it is alright to let them go after the adult worship is dismissed.

The Library is open after classes and the worship period.  Don’t forget to return any overdue books to the library.  There is a book return box located in the entry way next to the picture board.

Southside has an email list that is used to send congregational news to those subscribed.  Please join us by emailing
from the email account you wish to receive at and stay up to date with everything happening at Southside.  This automated mail list is used for church related matters such as general announcements, prayer requests, the bulletin, and other items of interest to the congregation.  Please see Laurie Giombi for details.

Free CD’s of the Sunday morning sermons are available from Joel Ribar.  Be sure to specify the date desired.  MP3 copies of sermons are also available at the church web site.
