Do I need to be a pastor or on staff? What about a member?
No, you do not need to be a pastor or staff member to participate in Southside Home. However, we encourage everyone to be a member. We hope that anyone who wants to be involved also desires to be committed to the mission of Southside Church.
Do I need to host it in my own home?
No, you can host it at anyone's home!
If I host do I need to provide refreshments?
No, the leader does not have to provide refreshments. Groups can divide responsibilities between its members. Anyone who has the gift of hospitality could supply refreshments. However, this could be coordinated on a schedule week by week schedule between everyone.
Are masks required?
This can be decided by each group. We understand that many of you might be worshipping with your family. In this case, there is no mandate for you to wear masks within your own home. However, we ask that everyone considers government mandates if you are inviting friends and neighbors to join.
Do I need to take up an offering?
We ask that everyone fully participates in worship; this includes giving. All giving can be easily done individually online on SecureGive instead of having to deal with cash or other forms of payment.
What if I'm not good with technology?
