Welcome to Southside

Thank you for joining us on our website! We believe that you have just found one of the finest churches in Lakeland. For us, it is certainly becoming one of the most exciting! When you walk through our doors we pray that you will experience the energy of our earnest effort to welcome you and your family. You will find a variety of age groups and ethnic groups represented here. We desire to be a "whosoever" church (John 3:16), and we are eager to have you feel at home and loved here with us. We are relevant in the way we present ministry without compromising the message of the Gospel. So, come and see, feel the difference, and grow with us.
