Sunday Worship Service: Miracles Happen

Dear “Virtual” Southminster Members,

Welcome to this Sunday edition of Virtual worship!  

As we move forward as a congregation, we are increasingly learning new ways to thrive in our new environment. This Sunday, we will have our first congregational meeting to elect new officers. We are so blessed to have so many wonderful and talented folk among us and those who have stepped up to the call of leadership even in the midst of uncertainties. I hope you can join us in our Congregational Zoom Fellowship and Meeting on today from 11:00-12:15 p.m. Click here to see full agenda and explanation of the congregational meeting.
