We know that visiting a new church can often be a trying experience!  You’ve got to
find the church, figure out where to park, find classes for the kids, find classes for yourself, try to get that jelly donut stain off your pants….

We are so excited that you have questions about our church.  Please take a few moments and let us answer some of those questions that you may have.  If you are planning to visit Southside Baptist for the first time, this page is for you!  We hope to answer many of your questions here so you can spend your early Sunday morning preparing for worship rather than worrying about all the details.  

When you arrive through the front doors of the Commons Area you will find a welcome center with someone to help you find classes and assist you with more answers.


·  What do I wear? 

    • Wear what you are comfortable wearing without being a distraction from the worship of our Lord.  Typically, you’ll see everything from jeans to suits.

·  What should I bring? 

    • Just bring yourself and anybody else you want to bring!  Come as you are!  A Bible is handy, though we’ll be happy to provide one.

·  Where do I park? 

    • In general if you come for Worship there is plenty of parking around the Main Sanctuary Building.  As you get to know our church there may a more convenient place to go directly to the nursery or a class.  We do have Guest Parking marked directly in front of the covered walk to the right of the Worship Center.
