Cheerful Givers Wanted


Small Groups

One of the ways we measure success at Southside is by how effective our ministries are in moving people from our large environments into life groups.

At Southside, our life groups are the best place for sustained life change to occur. In a life group, people study God's Word together and discuss the issues and challenges of life. It's also where they pray, care for one another, and are missed if they don't show up.

We have life groups meeting every weekend. Some meet on Sunday morning on our campuses while most meet on Sunday evenings, both on and off campus throughout the community.

If you would like to get involved in leading or joining a life group, please email us at, or give us a call at 478-953-9388.

Awali Land
9:30am & 11:00am every Sunday morning.

Awali Land is an exciting ministry for our nursery and preschool children. Our mission in Awali Land is to give preschoolers (birth through kindergarten) a lasting impression of God.

In Awali Land, we teach and reinforce three basic truths:

  • God Made Me
  • God Loves Me
  • Jesus Wants to be My Friend Forever

We consider Awali Land to be a foundational ministry of our church, and it is definitely not a babysitting service. With creative environments, loving volunteers, and hands-on learning experiences, we strive to provide the very best care for our precious preschoolers during every Sunday morning worship service.

252 Kids
9:30am & 11:00am every Sunday morning.

2:52 Kid’s is the place where elementary aged kids meet new friends and study God’s Word while their parents are in the 10:30am adult worship service. It’s also a environment where the Bible comes alive, the music is seriously jammin’, and the leaders really care.

Although we teach all kinds of virtues and principles in 2:52 kids, we especially emphasize three basic truths. We think that these three truths are extremely important for elementary students to know. These three truths are:
