And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.
— Hebrews 10:24-25

Southside has several small groups that meet throughout the week in various locations. Each group has their own theme and unique makeup. If you are interested in joining a small group in your area or that is similar to your age group, just let us know and we will get you plugged in. Below is a list of our current groups, where they meet and the leader’s name.




We are a group of couples in our 20s and 30s who enjoy sharing life together.  We all meet together on Sunday evenings at 5:30 to catch up with each other, then break up into either smaller couple-based groups or separate men’s and women’s groups.  On the last Sunday of each month we all go together to the church-wide potluck meal. We enjoy spending time together outside the church as well. We would love to meet you and get to know you!

  • Meeting Times : Sunday Nights 5:30 PM

Karen & Zine Smith

We meet weekly on Thursday nights from 5:30-8:00 in the Smith home allowing for continuity for all. We begin with good fellowship around food.  Fellowship and sharing continue as we study God’s Word followed by prayer and praise time drawing us all closer to the Lord and to each other. The bond of love keeps our sharing within the group as trust grows. Relationships are strengthened with each other and with Jesus. We would invite any and all within this area to join us!

Our men’s group meets weekly on Wednesday mornings at 6:30 AM for an hour.

Marriage is Ministry

Our heart is to see marriages win. One of our main goals is to see this group multiply over and over again, healing marriages and seeing marriages become the pillar of society that they were designed to be. This small group is for people who want to take some serious time understanding God’s plan for marriage and how to walk out God’s scriptural principles for marriage. As we meet will be watching videos sometimes, doing discussion, studying the word and praying for each other. There will also be devotional homework each week.
