What are services like?
We have a band – usually drums, bass, keys, acoustic guitar, electric guitar – some singers. All songs lyrics are projected on a screen. Video is used quite a bit. Songs range from uptempo rock-style to slower ballads. Most songs could be categorized as top 25 CCLI songs, but we also sing traditional hymns with a contemporary twist. We have a very informal style with laughing and clapping. Jesus is at the center of what we do. Our pastor’s talks are clear and relevant and not full of jargon. His talks mostly focus on a book of the Bible with an eye toward discipleship and serving our community.
What is the community like?
Our people come from all walks of life. It is quite amazing to see a small group of people talking where one is a business leader in the community, another is living at the gospel mission temporarily and others are in assisted living. We have young families with small children, many singles. Several have formerly dropped out of “church” earlier in their life for various reasons but after finding Southern Heights, have recently joined and become active again. Because of the large variety of people, it is very welcoming and friendly. A breath of fresh air.
What if I’m not a Christian?
We would love to have you check us out. The decision to follow Jesus is part of a spiritual journey. You may be just starting in your journey and want to understand who Jesus is. This is a place where you can find out more. You don’t have to be “all the way in” to attend Southern Heights. We will do our best to answer any questions you may have.
