Church Council

"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it."
(1 Corinthians 12:27, NIV)

Jesus said that the last shall be first and the first shall be last (Matthew 20:16, NIV), so we as leaders at Southwood are first and foremost servants of Christ. We are a committed group of Christ followers who not only seek to know God more deeply, but we also hope to connect and serve God's people. If you need someone to pray for you or help you with something, we are here to love, serve, uplift, lead and encourage.
