I'm New


Welcome to Southwood!

Photo: Pastor GregI'm glad you clicked into our website. If you are searching for a church home, I think I know what you are going through. I recently spent a sabbatical visiting all kinds of different churches. As a visitor, I think I know the feeling of walking into a strange church. You want to visit to get a sense of: Does this feel right to me? So let me give you an idea of what makes Southwood tick.

We are a church that worships using a blended musical style...everything from contemporary songs, to traditional hymns, to global music, to jazz. We are a church that desires for everyone the opportunity to grow in their faith. We are a church that serves needs beyond our walls in Lincoln, as well as in places like Honduras and Tanzania. We are a church that gives of our time, our abilities and our money so that God’s work can be done. We are a church that cares about each other, especially when they are going through challenging and difficult times.

Give us a try. You really have to experience it to know if this is a church you can call home. I truly believe that God works through Southwood in some very powerful ways. This may be the place where God will touch your life too!

"When Dave and I decided to marry we felt very strongly we needed to find a church where we both felt welcome. It only took one visit to Southwood to experience 'All are Welcome Here.' When we host we want everyone who walks through those doors to experience the feeling of 'all are welcome here.' What better way to sense God's love."
