I'm New

Everything is a little different in 2020. You probably have been going through a lot of changes in your life, South Shores Church has too. What you will see below is what we used to tell you when you're new (and we're looking forward to getting back to that). However, while our desire to connect with you and help you find your place in our family hasn't changed, some of the ways that we do it and what it looks like certainly has.

For the most up-to-date of what to expect in relation to COVID meeting restrictions, please visit our COVID-19 Updates Page



We know that sometimes it can take a lot of effort to try something or some place new, so we want to honor your effort and help make your experience even better. Keep reading below to find helpful information about where to park, how to drop off your kids, what the worship experience is like and how to get connected. If any of this feels overwhelming, don't worry, all you have to do is visit the Info Center that is right in the middle and our happy Welcome Team will take good care of you.

Our Sunday services are the primary way we gather as a whole church. These experiences are central to who we are and a great first step to get connected to life at South Shores. We gather for about an hour to sing together, listen to a message from God’s Word, pray, and respond to God’s Spirit.


SUNDAYS: 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00 AM | Worship CenterPast Messages

 The 8:00 and 9:30 "Traditional" services feature a full choir and organ. While the 11:00 "Contemporary" service features a praise band with guitars, keys and drums. The same message from God's Word is given at all three services.


Whether you have an infant, a 4th grader or a teenager, we would love to see you and your family this Sunday. Here's what you need to know about each age range:

Middle School & High School

Join us at the North end of the Family Center (Lower Level) as we offer a special youth experience at both the 9:30 and 11:00 am services. If it's the first Sunday of the month, we want you to join us in the Worship Center for the main service.

Once the worship service is over, our hope is that you don't just rush off with your day, but that you would stick around and get to know some of the other people at South Shores -- because, after Jesus, we think the people here are the best part. There is coffee and donuts after the first two services and most Sundays we even serve lunch, located at The Hub. If you head over to the Info Center and grab a "Welcome Packet" we've even included some vouchers so you can enjoy our food and drink on us.
