Join us for a discussion like no other! Explore God Chicago is a 7-week sermon series that asks life’s toughest questions. Have you even wanted to raise your hand during a sermon and ask a question, maybe two, three? Do you feel like everyone who goes to church has all the answers? Come to this discussion and you’ll find that we all wonder. We all have questions. This is an open, honest, and authentic discussion about life, faith, and God. So bring your questions and a wondering mind and explore with us as we all Explore God.

A time for coffee and treats, to meet people, learn about what’s happening in the week ahead, and catch up on each other’s lives.

11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. – Contemporary Service
This service features contemporary music and our Christian band, Central Road. The liturgy is less structured, yet offers an inspiring message.
Both services contain the same Scripture readings, prayers, and message. God speaks to us in a variety of ways, so we would invite you to visit and attend the service that you feel you are best able to worship God. We invite you to attend coffee fellowship and the education hour between services at 10:10 a.m.
There is plenty of free parking at the church.
The church is handicap accessible and has accessible pews and restrooms as well.
You will see a variety of dress at a Southminster services from sport coats to jeans. The traditional service tends to be more traditional in dress. People are invited to come as they are and they do! Clothing selection should not be a barrier. Casual dress is the typical style.
We have nursery care available from 9:20 a.m.-12:00 p.m. We want you to feel very comfortable leaving your baby, toddler, or preschooler with our paid, professional nursery caregiver. An usher can direct you to the room.
Children in Worship
You are welcome to take your children to worship with you. We have special bulletins just for children and worship bags with a variety of activities for young children to engage in during the service. There is a children’s time during each service when children hear a message just for them and then leave worship for Sunday school while adults listen to the adult message. Parents may pick-up their children in the second floor classrooms following the service.
If you or your children have special needs please let us know in advance of your visit and we will try to accommodate them.
Welcome Ministry Team
Each Sunday we have members available to welcome new comers and offer them a fresh baked loaf of bread. These welcome ministers can answer any questions you have and you can fill out a welcome card with your contact information if you like.
Please contact Associate Pastor Liz Nickerson for more info. We hope to meet you soon!
