All for the glory of God, and in the Spirit of Unity
Our mission is to worship God, to serve our fellow man, to reach the lost, to grow as a family of God, and do all this in a spirit of unity.
Welcome to Southwest!
We’re glad you’ve found our church! We hope you’ll find us to be an encouraging, friendly group of people. While we don’t make any claims to be perfect, we are regularly discovering truths that are changing us individually and enriching our lives as a church community.
In fact, it’s so good that we think it’s worth sharing!
The people in our congregation are like you—trying to find the time and energy to fit everything in each week and keep life in balance. To do that we’re convinced that we need wisdom and love beyond our own limited capacities. That’s why we set aside time every week to worship God and learn from his Book, the Bible. In our Bible study time and worship services both young and old learn principles for successful living that work not only on Sundays, but every other day of the week.
Another source of strength and joy is the support that we give each other. Lots of encouragement comes from being with people from a variety of backgrounds and interests who care about each other! How helpful it is to listen to the wisdom of older Christians and enjoy the exuberance of our children. And what a comfort to receive encouragement and support from church friends in time of crisis.
As we worship God, learn from the Bible, and pray for one another, we develop a common bond. Families coming to church together are strengthened in their commitment to God and as well as to each other. And we’re finding new answers to individual and family needs.
We want you to feel connected at Southwest! That happens as you get to know the people and the staff at the church but, beyond that, it happens as you find your place to serve the Lord and make a difference in the lives of others. We have many ministries in the church that exist to serve those who attend our church, but they also provide ways in which you can be a part of serving others.
At Southwest, our worship together is concluded with an opportunity for the church to weep together, as well as rejoice together. One-on-one prayer is one way we share each others burdens. Likewise, we celebrate with those who find new life in Christ and those who desire to be baptized, in the example of Christ.
Getting connected is about relationships,getting beneath the surface. These relationship won’t come by simply attending worship services. Whether kids or adults, all of us need time each week with a smaller group of people who can get to know us personally, share life with us, and encourage us to pursue Jesus Christ.
