Join us sundays at 8:00, 9:30, & 11:00AM

A growing faith requires both learning and doing. Jesus wants us to hear His words and to act on them. South Shores Church provides many opportunities for serving. You can help minister to our church family, the community around us, and even the world at large. It's our desire that each person at South Shores find an area of ministry that fits in with the talents, gifts, and passions that God has already given them.



God will reveal our gifts through His Holy Spirit. Believers should pray and study what God says about gifts in His Word. We should also remember God uses other believers to affirm our gift. Sometimes God may also use spiritual gift assessment tools to reveal His gifts.

Once gifts are discovered, the next step is to take action on that discovery. Look for ministry opportunities that match in with your gifts, talents, interests and passions.


It takes a lot of hands to make our church open, friendly, and available for those in person and at home. Here are some ways you can bless your church family on Sundays mornings and through the week. Email or call 949.496.9331.
