"Welcome one another, as Christ has welcomed you,for the glory of God." ~Romans 15:7

In the ministry and the mission of the church we seek to reflect the welcoming grace of Jesus Christ our Lord, Head of the Church. Our congregation of approximately 500 members is a part of the Presbytery of Sheppards and Lapsley, the Synod of Living Waters, and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). In connection with the larger church we seek to proclaim the gospel in word and deed in our community and throughout the world. In the life of Southminster, may you experience the welcoming grace of Jesus Christ.

EASTER is a fifty day season of seven Sundays, beginning with the Festival of the Resurrection (Easter Day) and concluding on the Day of Pentecost. The church joyfully celebrates the presence of the risen Christ in all of life. White is the liturgical color for this season. The Kyrie Eleison ("Lord, have mercy upon us") is omitted during Easter. The exclamation of praise, "Alleluia!" is restored to the liturgy, having been suppressed during Lent. Easter is known as "The Great Fifty Days" of the church year.
