Here's some information that should help:

When are the services?

Main service

We meet every Saturday at 10:30 am for our Sabbath School classes, and 11:30 am for our Worship Service. Our Sabbath School classes are an opportunity to study the Bible in groups, to ask questions and fellowship. The Worship Service is also called Divine hour, that is when we sing, give and listen to a sermon/message from the speaker.

Any other questions?

Was there something we forgot? Feel free to email us at info@southpointsda.org or call 904-448-4030 if you need any more information. We hope to see you soon!

What happens when I arrive?

We'll have ample parking space for you to arrive, then usually you'll see two people standing at the front door, they are called greeters. They are the "information center" for your church experience, ask them anything and they'll do everything in their power to answer your questions, and always with a smile, just because they love meeting new people. Then, if you come at 10:30am you'll be directed to the main sanctuary to be a part of prayer moments and worship which eventually the classes will split according to age groups. At 11:30am everyone will once again gather together in the main sanctuary to be a part of the worship service where everyone is encouraged to participate in every way, because we believe that church is not just listening but also participating.

What's service like?

In one word, relevant. We talk about current issues that affect us daily, using the Bible as our road map as to how to deal with the many road blocks in life.

Each Worship Service is from 11:30am to 1:00pm. Our pastor Ryan Amos starts by welcoming all of us and praying inviting God's presence. Then the children rush to the pulpit to participate in the Children's Story time. Followed by our opportunity to give in support of all the social justice causes happening locally and internationally as well. We then are invited to pray as a community, and you are more than welcome to participate by praying the way you feel most comfortable in. Our praise team then leads us in song followed by a 30-45min sermon/message by our pastor, or the day's speaker. Don't forget to take notes, these message are super relevant!
