Changes due to COVID-19:Southwood is offering in-person and on-line worship services on a weekly basis. Please consider your individual circumstances and select the worship option offering the safest alternative for you. Healing Prayer services are currently on hold.
Every Sunday at 8:30, 9:45 and 11:00 a.m.
On 1st and 3rd Sundays, we welcome all who are baptized and believe that Christ is present in the sacrament to join us in Holy Communion.
God gave us his best in Jesus. At Southwood we aim to bring our best through worship that is alive and yet connected to the Saints that have gone before us. At Southwood we worship using a blended style, with everything from contemporary songs, to traditional hymns, to global music, and jazz. Blended music and teaching styles create one worship experience grounded in the Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. On any given Sunday worshipers experience a wide variety of music, prayers, and even Bible translations. Southwood's liturgical format is both fresh and traditional all at once, opening us as worshipers to a more God-focused life. Worshipping at Southwood is a meaningful experience, but we value that it's not about "us," it is about God. As we come together for worship, we realize how blessed we are and give God the credit.
If you need comfort, support, healing or just some quiet calmness from the busyness of life, we invite you to come experience the peace God has waiting for you at our next healing service.
Our unique Healing Prayer Service provides comfort, support and healing for many difficult life situations. The candle-lit sanctuary brings a deep sense of peace and a sense for all that is sacred around us. Come and leave the busyness of the day behind while taking time to humbly come before our God. The Men's Chorus will offer special music that is as strong as it is peaceful, reminding us of our faithful God who is ever-ready to receive our worries, concerns, illnesses and heartaches.
God's healing power can come in many forms. It’s not that after the service that the blind see and the lame walk; however, when we're hurting, grieving and ailing we receive comfort in the support and prayers of others during this time set apart. Plus, we have the power of feeling and knowing the presence of the Holy Spirit that was present during the service will be with us wherever we go.
"For when two or more are gathered in my name, I am there among them." (Matthew 18:20 NRSV)
"For me, worship at Southwood is not a noun, it's a verb—an action that is ongoing, ever-growing, and always for the glory of God."
