Newcomer Gatherings
Interested in learning more about South Church? Are you considering membership? Join us at a Newcomer’s Gathering to learn more about South Church’s vibrant community of worship, fellowship, and service. Childcare is available during these meetings. We welcome you no matter where you are on life’s journey. Meet our ministers and other new and long time members, and share your questions and stories. Newcomer gatherings are offered throughout the year.
Faith Forums
“Drop ins” and “regulars” are all welcome to join our Faith Forums, a Sunday morning spiritual study and discussion group, meeting from 9:15-10:15am in the Library, beginning the second Sunday after Labor Day. If our coffee doesn’t wake you up, the conversation certainly will! Topics and facilitators vary throughout the year and can be found on our Events page.
Acts of Faith: A Year with the Book of Acts
For an entire program year, we challenged the whole church to engage with the Acts of the Apostles at some point. From small groups in homes and Sunday morning bible studies, to short video clips and podcast devotionals, there were opportunities for everyone to dive into this rich and informative text.
Social Justice Coalition
Jesus was a person of action – and he calls on us to be a people of action in his name. Click here to read more about the Social Justice Coalition.
Theology on Tap
Theology isn’t only the stuff of dense books and dead theologians – it happens any time we name God at work in the world. Once a month, Theology on Tap gathers at a local establishment to engage in that holy work over a drink – whether alcoholic or not.
Intergenerational Bible Study at Edgewood
All are invited to attend our bible study group, whether or not you reside at Edgewood, a retirement community. You are welcome to attend as a regular member or on a “drop-in” basis. Journey with us in making the Bible come alive! This group meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month from 10:30am – Noon beginning the second Sunday after Labor Day. In the private dining room at Edgewood Club House, 575 Osgood Street, North Andover.
