Southside has a strong commitment to our children and youth. We seek to be faithful to the promises we make at the baptism of children, to guide and nurture them by word and deed, with love and prayer, encouraging them to know and follow Christ and to be faithful members of His church. We would normally do this through weekly Sunday school classes, providing nursery care for our youngest friends, monthly youth groups for grades 3-5 and middle and high school youth; and yearly retreats, mission trips, preparation for confirmation, and church camps.
While we have not re-started our Sunday School classes or opened the nursery, worshipping outside gives us the opportunity to welcome our children into the worship space. They are invited to explore the courtyard and play together and there is a Children's Moment and special activities during worship.
