At Southminster we value caring for our family and responding to needs without hesitation. It is incredible to watch how this family of faith lives out the teaching of Jesus by caring for those whom God has brought into our family, but this isn't where our call as followers of Jesus ends. Just as God has reached out to each one of us and brought us into His family through Jesus, we also remember that our call is to reach out to others with the life changing love of Jesus Christ.
Life can be hard and painful at times. No one would deny that. Sometimes we try to make it through on our own, but that's not what we were created for. God created us to desire and seek community throughout our lives. At Southminster community quickly becomes family, and families care for each other.
At Southminster we have a Board of Deacons that connect with, care and pray for the congregation. Deacons serve as shepherds to groups of people called flocks, taken from imagery that you will find in the Bible. Deacons are among the first in our congregation to respond to needs, and will notify the rest of our church family when something happens. If you need to speak with a deacon please contact Rev. David Northcutt or Ida Earle, our Deacon Moderator.
One way we respond to needs is through Food for the Soul. This ministry provides meals to families of new babies, grieving families, and people battling or recovering from short term illness or injury. If there is one thing families are good at, it's making food for each other. To find out more about Food for the Soul contact our Congregational Care Elders, Dina Etkin or Bea McClung.
God brought each one of us into His family through the love of Jesus, and so it is in that same spirit that we reach out to share the love of Jesus with others. God calls us to not only reach out to the people in our community, but throughout the world.
Following the model in the book of Acts, Southminster supports mission efforts in our city, in our state, in our country, and internationally.

Each year our church designates our Christmas Offering to go to a special ministry that we support. This year our Mission & Evangelism Committee voted to send our offering to Water Mission in Puerto Rico.
With your help and generosity we were able to raise $5,038 for Water Mission! Thank you for your support. Stay tuned for updates on Water Mission's work in Puerto Rico in the upcoming months.
