Welcome to Southern Hills United Methodist Church! We are a vibrant congregation that loves the Lord and finds joy in serving our community. Growing our faith at all ages is at our core! “Making Disciples and Making a Difference” is more than a slogan to us. Come join us as we praise God through: Starting September 15 we will go to ONE worship service at the memorable time of 10:10 am during the school year. It provides a blend of contemporary and traditional music along with meaningful drama, video clips and Biblically-based preaching. The 10:10 am time allows for our Sunday School volunteers to clean up their lessons and join us for worship. Our worship is informal and you are invited to come as you are! Stimulating Christian education is on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. (during the school year) and offers classes for all ages from 4-years-old through adult. Active adult education including small-group Bible studies on a variety of topics. “Youth On Fire” is our Middle and High School youth group that meets every Wednesday during the school year at 6:30 p.m. Meetings rotate through Bible study, youth worship, fellowship activities and community- service projects. We encourage involvement in summer church camps and plan special outings, including an annual mission trip to serve those in need. Partnership with Lutheran Social Services Education and Child Care Services provides an outstanding after- school and summer program for elementary age children, all-day preschool for 3-to-5-year-olds, and infant / toddler care.
