Surfside is the children’s ministry of Southside Church (birth – grade 5). Our children’s worship services are held in captivating environments and filled with worship songs, crafts, and great Bible stories that teach God’s Word at an age-appropriate level.
Surfside takes place during all weekend services.
Your child's safety is our first priority. All Surfside teachers, helpers, and worker are required to pass a thorough background check, are required to pass rigorous and ongoing training, and do not serve alone.
Our check-in procedures are designed with safety at their core. Children and parents receive matching printed nametags and pick-up tags to ensure their safety in our environments. Your child’s nametag identifies their age group, any allergies, and a security code that matches your parent pick-up tag. At the end of the service, each parent picking up a child must provide the matching pick-up tag.

Children learn about Jesus and His great love for them through songs, Bible stories, games, snacks, and play.

Growing kids the right way, knowing “I need to make the wise choice” - “I can trust God no matter what.”
Baptism is an important step in your child's faith, it is a public proclamation that they are following Jesus Christ. Learn more here.
Southside Surfside Baptism is a two step process. The first is attending a Children's Baptism class. The second step occurs after the Children's Baptism class and includes scheduling your child's baptism.
Presenting your child for dedication signifies your faith in the Christian religion, as well as your desire that the child may know and follow God. Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:13-14). We are excited to partner with you, as you guide and raise your child in the way of the Lord!
Allow a two-week minimum when requesting a specific dedication date. We make every effort to accommodate a requested date and time, although at times it may be necessary to adjust owing to the flow of our Worship Services.Schedule
